SoccerSoccer is the most widely played sport in the world.  The injury risk varies dependent on the player’s biomechanics, the shoes worn and the condition of the surface played upon.  Common injuries include shin splints, ankle sprains and turf toe (sprain injury to the big toe joint capsule).  Another trend with school aged soccer players is Calcaneal Apophysitis or Sever’s disease as it is more commonly known.  This is characterised by inflammation at the growth plate and is presents as pain at the back of the heel, commonly just post activity or during physical activity.
