You Play Through Pain, But You Stop Due To Injury

In the era of this stressful lifestyle, exercise and sports are excellent ways to handle it. Sports, whether it’s for recreational or professional purposes, are associated with the risk of sports-related injuries. Further, its incidence is increasing with the need for an active lifestyle. A person is more prone to the injury if:

  • NOT active regularly.
  • Doesn’t warm up properly before exercise.
  • Play contact sports.

Types of sports injuries

The most common types of sports injuries are:

  • Sprain: Overstretching or tear in the ligaments results in a sprain. Ligaments hold the joint in a stable position. Cles or tendons are known as a sprain.
  • Strains: Tear in the muscle.
  • Knee injuries:
      • Cruciate ligaments (ACL/PCL).
      • Collateral ligaments ( MCL/LCL).
      • Meniscus and cartilage injury.
  • Ankle injuries: It includes ATFL, deltoid ligament injury, syndesmotic injury, Achilles tendon rupture, os trigonium syndrome, and talar cartilage injury.
  • Shoulder injuries: It comprises of Rotator cuff tear, Bankart’s lesion, Hill Sachs lesion, and subscapularis tear.
  • Fractures, dislocation, and concussion: Seen more commonly in contact sports like Rugby.

Sports injury management

It starts at the field side only. The initial examination is done by the Sports Physician or physiotherapist to assess the severity and the person is sent to a specialist for further management.

Initially, the injured part is immobilized to prevent further deterioration. The RICE is the abbreviation for the initial management.

  • Rest
  • Ice
  • Compression
  • Elevation

Once the diagnosis is made by the specialist, the further decision can be made towards joining the sports back.

The surgical management for sports injury has evolved a lot nowadays. All the open procedures are replaced by Arthroscopy surgery. It has the benefit of being minimally invasive, minimal blood loss, lesser joint stiffness, faster rehabilitation and early return to sports. Few examples are:

  • ACL, PCL, MCL, LCL, meniscus and posteromedial/ posterolateral corner repair as well as reconstructions.
  • Cartilage reconstruction procedures like ACI, chondroplasty,
    OATS.
  • Rotator cuff repair, bankarts repair, remplissage and latarjet
    procedure.
  • ATFL/ Deltoid ligament repair
  • Rehabilitation: With the help of dedicated Sports Physiotherapist, early rehabilitation is started to shorten the period of RETURN TO SPORTS.
