Exercise / Fitness

Whether you’re just kicking the ball around the yard or training intensely for the fall season, following basic soccer safety tips will keep you out of the emergency department this summer. Atlantic Sports Health experts say that you should always know the type of surface you’ll be playing on and dress accordingly. Wearing cleats designed for natural grass on artificial turf and vice versa increases your chance of ankle and knee injuries. Our specialists also recommend drinking plenty of fluids prior to competition, not just during the game, to avoid heat-related illness. See more soccer safety tips >
