Soccer is a lively team sport that encourages children to cultivate the active habits of a healthy lifestyle. We’ve got some information about common soccer injuries to increase your awareness and help you to take steps that can keep your child safe on the field.

Whenever injury occurs, a player should not resume playing until he or she has been evaluated and properly treated.

We can evaluate the injury and develop a treatment plan designed to help your athlete recover and return safely to play.
