Hockey injuries are sustained in many ways. Contusion injuries from being struck by a stick or ball are expected. However the more serious are those sustained by twisting on the astroturf.
Typically we see knee, hip and ankle injuries due to excessive rotation on the joints. However lower and mid-back pain is common as a result of running in a forward flexed position.
