Soccer injuries according to player positions

Ping blog

In modern soccer, static game concepts don’t prevail, unless in the case of goalkeepers, tactic assignments are exposed through huge amount of moving(running) with more or less duel game, traumatology will be discussed according to places in the team.

Goalkeeper injuries are direct(players collision, fall on surface or post hit) and indirect(overloads).
Direct injuries are pretty often. Here are muscle contusions of any degree and on different localities, shoulder joint and fingers sprains.
Tipical keeper injuries, before use of protective pillows and prohibition of ground play, were prepatellar bursitis and bursitis bursae olecranoni. These injuries are now found on lower competition ranks where soccer is played on hard surfaces(ground) and material possibilities do not allow quality equipment procurement.

Side defenders injuries:
Right and left back are, in modern soccer, featured by extraordinary speed and ability for huge movement radius. Due to duel play in which they have active role, groin injuries, lower leg contusions and head injuries due to collisions, plantar bursitis, achilles tendinopathy, hamstring muscle injury. These players are often found in wing roles, when they in duel play have passive role and can be injured( see part wings later).

Central defenders injuries:
Play of these players is featured by a lot of duel-play and headers(bigger body height), march fracture, so due to this factor most often head injuries, contusions or concussions, or cuts in collision with opponent player, occur. Due to duel-play on the ground, groin injuries, ankle joint(examples footballer's ankle, sprained ankle...),  and lower leg injuries are often.

Midfielder injuries:
Midfielders often have smaller height and good aerobic-anaerobic endurance. They run a lot and they are often on target of opponent team defensive players. Most fouls are made on them, because the ball spends the longest period of time in their possession, march fracture. Very often(in defensive match) these players change their role and from victims becoming players that hurt opponents. In contact often injuries are lower leg(bone injuries), menisci injuries, and especially groin injuries.

Wing injuries:
Wing players are featured by extreme sprint abilities and they often suffer from sprint injuries - plantar bursitis, achilles tendinopathy,hamstring muscle injury. They are often target of opponent side defenders and their hard tackles, so lower leg and knee injuries are the most normal thing among these players.

Modern centerforwards injuries:
Centerforward, in modern soccer, does the assignments of classic and modern centralforward. Movement radius is extremely bigger than most of other players and it is featured by good headers and quality technics with hard shot. Also sprinting features are necessary, so sprint injuries may occur- plantar bursitis, achilles tendinopathy,hamstring muscle injury. He is the target of all defensive players and injuries are often. It is thought that this position is the most endangered position on the pitch. Head injuries, ankle joint injuries, lower leg laceracions are the most often.

Two equally represented injuries by soccer players are: inner menisci injury with or without ligamentous injury and “footballer’s ankle”. Menisci injuries(meniscal tear is one of the examples) come as a consequence of soccer boots injuries. Spikes can fix lower leg rotation to the pitch on any degree and cause injuries of knee soft tissues. There were suggestions to increase the size of the central spike, but till now, this idea is not realized. 

All other most often injuries are described on blog under area Sports injuries/rehabilitations
