“Flopping” Hurts the Recognition of Severe Soccer Injuries

As referees and coaches attempt to enhance safety for athletes, the epidemic of “flopping” has risen as well. In attempt to gain a competitive advantage, Soccer players will try to stop unfavorable plays or get other key players and teams in foul trouble by faking an injury. Because of Soccer’s hands-free nature, fans can spot injury-faking, sometimes very easily. The advent of instant replay, combined with televised broadcasting, and large in-stadium screens, exposes floppers even more. While the World Cup rules committee strives to eliminate this infuriating practice that seems to govern way too much of International play, an actual soccer injury can prove to be very, very harmful. If you or your loved one has endured soccer injuries, they won’t get better if left untreated. In fact, untreated soccer injuries will only intensify over time and can lead to a whole host of other problems in your body.

The Better the Player - The Higher the Risk

Professional Soccer Players like Neymar, Lionel Messi, and Cristiano Ronaldo have more in common than just being some of the world’s greatest soccer players. They are also among the world’s most targeted on-field personalities. Whether or not they are considered to be nice guys or dirty players, the very best players on the field are always a target for excessive slide tackling, fouling, and other tactics designed to accomplish one thing: get those players off the field. If opposing teams can eliminate the other teams best player, they can increase their own likelihood of winning. While this seems quite appalling to most average on-lookers, it’s actually quite common to most competitive sports, including soccer. Because of the extremely athletic plays that great soccer players have the ability to make, they often find themselves left in vulnerable, precarious positions once the action has taken place. This combination can spell doom for knees, ankles, hips, and all other body parts. Chiropractic care can help you recover!
