Whether playing competitively or just in the backyard, volleyball is a fun sport for players of all ages and skill levels. The only downside is that like other sports, volleyball does come with a risk of injury.
Given the nature of the game, the most common volleyball injuries likely aren’t hard to guess: shoulder overuse, finger fractures, and sprained ankles top the list.
While volleyball injuries are more common in competitive players, even a casual player can get hurt due to an accident, poor technique or lack of conditioning. Younger players are especially prone to injury.
