Do you know the most common injuries in floorball?

Floorball consists of quick starts, stops and turns, and therefore sprained ankles are quite common.

Players may also sustain acute injuries to the thigh, groin and knee. This may occur with or without contact with other players. Other common injuries include blows to the thigh, pulled muscles in the thigh and groin, and knee injury.

In a sport like floorball, a ball or a stick can hit the eyes. Protective eyewear is highly recommended and obligatory for all players born after 2000.

Floorball players may also develop overuse injuries from a high amount of repetitive movements. The groin, knee, calve and low back are particularly vulnerable to these kind of injuries.
