Volleyball is a team sport played by two teams on a court that is divided by a net. It originated in the United States and is now reaching a new level of popularity in the U.S. and globally.

Besides the basic rules, volleyball is a sport that involves jumping, striking, and falling. In other words, many injuries can occur in this great game. Injury patterns vary between the indoor and beach styles, but similar injuries are commonly seen between the two.
