What Common Injuries Occur on AstroTurf?

What are the most common injuries that occur on AstroTurf?

Answer:

One of the most common injuries is turf toe, which is when the big toe gets jammed into the hard surface.

Research has shown that there is a greater incidence of knee injuries as well. In fact, AstroTurf creates more wear and tear on the joints, in general.

Many facilities are switching from AstroTurf to natural grass for these reasons.
