(Reuters Health) – As soccer has soared in popularity in recent decades, injury rates for youth players have also surged, a U.S. study suggests.
The injury rate for youth soccer players aged 7 to 17 more than doubled over the 25-year period ending in 2014, according to an analysis of children treated in U.S. hospitals.

.

Even though concussions accounted for just 7 percent of these injuries, the annual rate of concussions surged by almost 1,600 percent during the same period.

.

Both the number and rate of soccer-related injuries increased significantly over the study period, said senior study author Dr. Huiyun Xiang, who leads pediatric trauma research at Nationwide Childrens Hospital and Ohio State University College of Medicine in Columbus.

.

This means that the increase in injuries doesnt just come from more children playing soccer, but that athletes may be getting injured more frequently, Xiang said by email.

.

Roughly 3 million children 7 to 17 years old have been treated for soccer injuries in U.S. hospitals during the 25-year period ending in 2014, averaging about 120,000 annually.

.

Children 12 and older accounted for 73 percent of the injuries, with the average age of injured athletes hovering around 13, the study found.
Most injuries occurred when players collided with each other or with the ball.

.

The majority of injuries were sprains, fractures and soft tissue injures.
One limitation of the study is that it only included hospital data, which means authors didnt have information about injuries treated in other settings.

.

In addition, researchers couldnt tell whether injuries happened in practice or competition or how many occurred for each hour athletes played soccer.
