TURF vs. GRASS?

Home » Blog » TURF vs. GRASS?

As all of our kids are starting soccer and football season this year, the debate rages on. Which is a safer surface artificial turf or grass for our athlete’s to play on. Both have pro’s and con’s. Turf  is better for shock absorbtion and weathering the elements such as rain and snow. Grass is more economical and reduces incedence of knee and ankle injury. Studies show an increase of ACL rupture and ankle sprains on artificial turf, the reason is when an athlete twists or “cuts” the foot is fixed on the more stable turf surface than grass. When your kids go on the field this season make sure they have the appropriate cleat for the turf surface, and most important have fun and be safe!!

My daughter has a form of cerebral palsy that weakens one side of her body. She can walk, but she’s always had to wear a brace to support her weak ankle and foot. After one month of Physical Therapy at Progressive Sports Rehab she has made more progress than ever before. Her Doctor has said she no longer has to wear her brace that set her apart from everyone else. We are elated!! - Jacqui W.
