Common World Cup Injuries

By Tom Astley posted Jun 10, 2014

​With the World Cup just around the corner, it looks like there will already be a few key players missing through injury. England's Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain suffered a medial knee ligament injury in their warm up match against Ecuador and Franck Ribery has succumbed to a lower back injury in one of France's training sessions. Unfortunately for them it looks like Oxlade-Chamberlain will miss the start of the tournament and Ribery will miss out all together. 

In light of this, AposTherapy wanted to review common football injuries that occur and have created a graphic showing the most common injuries at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

My professional qualifications are: BSc (hons) Science in Health Exercise and Sport (2005) – University of Wales Institute Cardiff (UWIC), BSc (Hons) Physiotherapy (2008), Coventry University

I started working with Apos in 2011, prior to that, I have worked in musculoskeletal clinics and community based falls prevention rehabilitation, both were for the NHS. My interests in AposTherapy began through wanting to know more about biomechanics in musculoskeletal injuries, and now I've been treating patients with varying condition since 2011.  

Outside of work, I enjoy staying fit and healthy by attending the gym, completing triathlons and road cycling. The interests I hold outside of work drive me to want to help other achieve their goals. In rehabilitation, setting goals and achieving them is a crucial component to succeeding.

 

The experience I have gained with AposTherapy has broadened my knowledge in acute and chronic conditions, lower limb and spinal biomechanics as well as the skill of gait analysis.the completion of a degree in science, health, exercise and sport, I decided to specialise in Physiotherapy and completed this at Coventry university.  
I gained valuable experience in musculoskeletal, sports rehabilitation, and community based neurological and falls prevention rehabilitation within the NHS.
I joined AposTherapy to follow my interest in the field of biomechanics and work with experts in the treatment of osteoarthritis with the aim of successfully optimising patients function and reducing pain through functional gait rehabilitation.

Neuromuscular control is a process which includes the information traveling to the brain via the nerves regarding the position and movement of the limbs and the torso. The processing of this information, and the resultant action of the muscles governed by the brain. These three components of neuromuscular control are interconnected and are on-going during any daily activity. Good neuromuscular control protects the joints, enables balance and reduces effort.
