  Soccer is one of the most popular sports in the world. Most soccer injuries involve the lower extremity. These may be overuse injuries like patella tendonitis, iliotibial band syndrome, hip flexor tendonitis or Achilles tendonitis. Traumatic injuries are common as well. These include injuries to the knee such as anterior cruciate (ACL tears), medial collateral ligament (MCL) tears, meniscus tears and injuries to the foot and ankle like ankle sprains and fractures.Due to the torque on the hip involved in kicking a soccer ball, injuries to the hip such as muscle tears and labral tears are common as well. Injuries to the head, such as concussions may occur from heading the ball as well.
