Sports injury is a very common problem affecting the career of many athletes in the whole world. These injuries happen when players engage in particular sporting activities or during training sessions. Injuries may also happen when players engage in poor training practices or wear improper gear while training. Players may suffer several kinds of injuries. They include swollen muscles, pain along the shin bone, fractures, dislocations, sprains, and strains. Great players such as Owen Hargreaves, Michael Beckham and Ashley Young have faced problems in their athletic careers due to sports injuries. Ankle injuries, shoulder injuries and muscle sprains affect most football players.

Athletes may face two types of injuries while engaging in sporting activities. They include acute and chronic injuries. Acute injuries occur suddenly when a particular player engages in sporting activities. Examples of acute injuries include strained backs, sprained ankles, and fractured hands. Signs of acute injuries include extreme arm and leg weaknesses, severe pain and the failure of moving major joints in the body. Chronic injuries occur when a player exercises for a long time. Signs of this type of injury include pin while playing, swellings and pain while exercising. Players should seek medical help incase their injury causes severe swelling and numbness or they feel unstable. Injuries are treated through surgery, immobilization and rehabilitation. Surgery is common in case a particular injury causes torn ligaments and tendons.

An interview was conducted in on a major football club in order to assess whether the problem of ankle and foot injury was common among all athletes. The coach was asked whether they had implemented strategies that would protect the players of this club from injuries. The coach was also supposed to state whether they deal with both chronic and acute injuries. The project idea that was developed in this interview involved seeking the help of  sporting associations, medical experts and players in the fight against sports injuries.
