Ankle sprains commonly occur in soccer due to the physical nature of the sport and the player-to-player contact.

The cleats that are worn while playing soccer have little to no ankle stability. There are also lots of quick changes in direction, pivoting, and that kind of thing involved on the field.

As well as the terrain, itself, depending on the weather conditions the grass, or the turf can – doesn’t have a lot of give and the foot can get stuck and roll out, causing an ankle sprain.  

If soccer players are interested in finding out more about how these conditions can lead to ankle sprains, they can speak to their doctor, their physiotherapist, as well as their coach.
