World Cup Soccer & Injuries – Get Professional Treatment for Your Soccer Star
After Germany defender Mat Hummels suffered a right thigh contusion in the Portugal game that caused bleeding into his muscle, he still didn’t believe his 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil was over.
Quadriceps muscles on the front of the thigh are more subjected to contusions because the quadriceps can receive direct blows. Conversely, the hamstring muscle, on the back of the thigh, is more predisposed to sprains, rather than contusions.
Ways Hummels can recover from his right thigh contusion:
- Wrapping his thigh with a wet bandage to insulate his skin (ace bandage).
- Doing a lot of stretching!
- Frequently icing his injury in 10-30 minutes intervals.
- Utilizing crutches for second and third degree contusions.
- Performing isometric exercises while using ice in order to control the hemorrhaging.
- Wearing a thigh sleeve or “donut pad” in the future, when he returns to the field.
Hummels will be treated with the utmost professional care with his soccer injury by some of the best world renowned doctors.
Although soccer provides an excellent form of aerobic exercise and development of balance, agility, coordination, and a sense of teamwork, all soccer players must be cautious of injuries that can result from partaking in the sport.
