There’s nothing like the thrill of a blitz, the beauty of a perfect pass or the triumph of a touchdown. But in a high-impact sport like football, sometimes limits aren’t the only things that get busted. When something goes wrong on the field, it isn’t just the game at stake — it’s your lifelong health. You need to be tough enough to take care of your body when it matters most.
Football injuries can be caused by either trauma or overuse, although traumatic injuries are more common, given the hard-hitting nature of the game. The most common injury sites include the knees, ankles, fingers, shoulders and head. However, any part of the body may be affected, depending on how the injury happened.
