The most common causes of injury
Why do you spend more time in the treatment room than out on the pitch? Bobby Bacic, head physio at Millwall, explains
There’s nothing better than playing football – it’s good for your health and for 90 minutes a week you get to escape your boss, spouse and nagging parents.
But you can get hurt, leaving you open to other duties – cutting the grass, washing the car or worse still… Shopping.
Most players experience minor knocks, others suffer long-term injuries – either way it’s frustrating.
But why do we get injured? What are the most common causes? What makes our body break down? Bobby Bacic, Millwall’s head physio, explains.
Bobby Bacic was speaking at the Science + Football Conference. This year's conference is on Wednesday, April 30 at the London Soccer Dome. For more information visitwww.scienceandfootball.com
