Football

Football is a high-energy and physically demanding sport. This high-contact sport involves jumping, running, heading, passing, turning, shooting and all the other quick movements on a repetitive basis. This combination of high speed, high contact and rapid movement creates a pressure on the muscles, cartilage, ligaments, bone and tendons. When this pressure goes beyond the normal capacity to adapt, an injury occurs. Injuries in football negatively affect players' physiological capabilities due to constant inactivity.
