Did you sustain one of these sports injuries?

Treatment for sports injuries are usually determined by your specific condition and fitness level. The most typical types of sports injuries include:

1.
Jumpers' knee:  

One of the most frequently damaged body parts is the knee because it is the most complex joint in your body. Knee injuries can range in severity from less serious ones like an ACL tear to more serious ones like dull sensations that radiate from your hip to your knee.
2. Dislocated or broken bones: 

A sudden force being applied to a bone might break it. This is also referred to as a fractured bone. This is a possibility in nearly any sport. It can be challenging to distinguish between a broken bone and a dislocated bone. When your bones' ends shift from their natural position, it causes a dislocation. These are frequent in contact sports including basketball, football, and soccer. Extreme discomfort, swelling, and immobility are some of the symptoms. These wounds in both cases are severe.

3. shin injury:
Medial tibial stress syndrome is the medical term for shin splints, which refers to pain felt in the shin bones. Stress applied to the shinbone and the connective tissues around it frequently results in this pain. Shin splints are uncomfortable and frequently incapacitating, but you may prevent them by wearing the right shoes, warming up before exercise, and strengthening your leg and core muscles.

4. Sprains and strains:

A sprain or strain happens when the tendon that connects your muscle to bone is stretched over its breaking point, often known as "pulling a muscle." It is more likely to happen again if a ligament is strained during a sprain. Our licenced physiotherapists are committed to assisting you in living a life free of pain.

FAQs

Will my injured area heal to be just as strong as it was before the injury?

Numerous sports-related injuries result in immediate pain or discomfort. Others, like overuse injuries, could take years to manifest themselves. Injuries like these are frequently discovered during routine physicals or checkups. Keep in mind that the sooner you receive a diagnosis and treatment, the sooner you'll recover and return to play.

 

How to prevent or avoid sports injuries

Stretching both before and after participating in sports or exercise is one of the best strategies to avoid injury. Never engage in physical activity without the appropriate safety equipment. Your equipment should also be in good working order. Before, during, and after playing sports, make sure to drink lots of water to stay hydrated. Drink some water before you play or work out. During your activities, take a break for a drink every 20 minutes. Depending on how much you perspired during the exercise, you may want to drink more water when you're finished.

 

When should I see a physiotherapist?

Go to the physiotherapist right away if your injury is followed by extreme pain or selling. They can help smooth your rehabilitation process. Your physiotherapist may also provide some exercises to follow to help the injured area heal.

 

How do I know when to apply ice or heat to an injury?

A popular treatment plan for sports injuries is the RICE approach. It represents:
1. rest

2. ice

3. compression

4. elevation


This course of treatment is effective for minor sports injuries. Follow the RICE treatment within the first 24 to 36 hours following the injury for best outcomes. In the initial stages following a sports injury, it can aid in reducing swelling and guard against further discomfort and bruising.

Sports Injuries can be prevented as well with the right physical therapy.

We'll work to hasten your recovery at Caring Hands Physiotherapy so you can get back to your favourite sport!
