Football related injuries can be something as minor as a cut or bruise to broken limbs or torn ligaments. If you play football professionally as your job then it is likely you may well sustain a work injury related to football.
How can a work injury related to football be caused?
There are several different ways in which a work injury related to football can be caused. In training it can be caused by putting too much pressure on the joint or over stretching it. You could also suffer from a repetitive strain injury, especially if you do the same movement repeatedly over a long stretch of time.
On the pitch you could be tackled by an opponent which could cause a significant accident at work. Alternatively you could land awkwardly if reaching up to head the ball. There are many other potential work injuries related to football but these are some of the more common ones.
How to treat a work injury effectively?
The type of treatment you will require for the injury you sustained through your accident at work on or off the pitch will vary depending on the type of work injury you sustain. If you break a bone then you need to get it strapped up and possibly a cast put on. This will most likely mean some time off work which could mean loss of earnings.
Alternatively, if your work injury comes in the form of a sprain or pulled ligament you may need it strapped up or they may recommend resting it and applying a cold compress to the work injury. Either way most of these injuries may mean time off from football to let the limb recover. If you go back to it too soon after your accident at work it could mean causing permanent damage to the muscle or joint.
If you have had an accident at work whether you are a footballer or a cleaner within the last 3 years that wasn’t your fault you may be able to make a claim.
