    How To Handle Sports Related Muscle Injuries.

    Physical activity and sports related muscle injuries wear out our parts, and more aggressive activity wears our parts out more quickly. There are lots of examples in those who were professional athletes in their younger years. Despite this, exercise is one of the best therapies for almost everything. Even people with terminal cancer live longer and better if they exercise.

    Fortunately, our body has tremendous ability to regenerate our parts. We can repair skinned knees, knit broken bones back together, and even regrow joint cartilage.

    What causes the pain of chronic injury?

    Most of the pain of sports related muscle injuries from repetitive strain and micro trauma is caused by muscle and fascia (myofascial pain) and not inflammation or scar tissue. Muscles develop pain generating myofascial develop trigger points, and tendons that attach the muscles develop small tears. Then when the muscle contracts against the injured tendon, the trigger points fire and pain prevents further injury.

    How do we best treat sports related muscle injuries?

    Dry needling, trigger point injections, and myofascial release are usually the most rapidly effective therapies for problems like tennis elbow, golfers? elbow, plantar fasciitis, and what is often called ?bursitis? in various locations. If trigger point injections are not enough, then the tendons and associated ligaments may also have to be treated.

    How do we heal?

    Our body uses the same mechanisms to heal many different parts. When we sprain an ankle, some of the ligaments that hold the joint together get torn or over-stretched. This injury sets off a reaction that takes weeks to complete.

    Right after the injury inflammatory chemicals get released that make the nearby blood vessels leak fluid and white blood cells into the area of injury. This makes the ankle swell, and the white blood cells release enzymes that clean up the inured tissue. As a result of this ?soup,? about 3 days after injury fibroblast cells find their way to the injury. These cells rebuild and regrow the injured ligaments.

    What stops healing?

    The healing process is greatly slowed or stopped by anti-inflammatory medications like ibuprofen, and also nicotine in the blood. Ice slows metabolism and healing also.

    How long does the healing process take?

    The process of healing continues for several weeks, and even months. Broken bones and injured ligaments reach approximately 90% of strength in 6 weeks.

    What can be done to accelerate healing?

    Most important is to get out of the way of our body, stopping smoking and not taking anti-inflammatory medications. Next is to take extra vitamin C and zinc. Studies on wounded soldiers showed the importance of vitamin C and zinc in healing. Lastly, consider applying moist heat to increase blood and nutrient supply and speed up metabolism in the area of injury.

    What if I do not heal enough, how can I get more?

    Examples of not healing enough include loose joints after sprains, and partially torn tendons. For both of these examples, we can get our body to ?rerun? the same healing program if we simply re-injure the body part. A controlled and tiny injury can be made with an acupuncture needle, an injection of dextrose and novocaine (prolotherapy), and most effectively with an injection of your own platelet rich plasma. Once the body?s healing program is restarted, fibroblast cells will come in 3 days to start rebuilding the injured part. Acupuncture provides for the weakest body reaction and slowest healing, compared to the use of platelet rich plasma.

    12 Golden rules for seeing a Physiotherapist ?

    Here are 12 golden rules that will help you get the best help from a Physiotherapist during a consultation and treatment;

    ? Do not compare your problem with someone else?s problem. No two people have the exact same problem; We, as a human beings, feel the pain but Physiotherapists are skilled in understanding the behaviour and reason for that Pain, which is ultimately being of help for the effective treatment.

    ? Do not hold anything back. Every bit of information may play a vital role in the diagnosis of the problem, Do not make any assumptions. Let your Physiotherapist make appropriate clinical assessment and diagnosis based upon their expertise as to what your problem is.

    ? Do not get upset with the questions that the Physiotherapist may ask. These questions may seem to be excessive for the problem or even seem to be irrelevant; however you must trust your Physio. The information allows the Physio to understand the root cause of the problem and devise a method to help you manage it.

    ? Do not do research on the internet before you see your Physiotherapist. It is highly likely that you will research the Wrong diagnosis. Physiotherapists are able to explain what the problem may be and give you the appropriate search term that will fit the true definition of your problem. The advantage of this is that you will be able to play your part in managing your problem in tandem with the active treatment provided by your Physiotherapist. Remember you are with the Physiotherapist in all probability for a maximum of 3-4 hours in a week! The rest of the time you will need to do your bit.

    ? Do not quote, repeat or translate anything another professional/person has said to you about your problem before the Physiotherapist asks you. You will get better results if the Physiotherapist is allowed to use their vast knowledge in coming to their own conclusion without prejudice. It is therefore less likely that the wrong clinical diagnosis will be made. After all, if anybody knew better, why is it necessary to see a Physiotherapist in the first place?

    ? Do not expect the Physiotherapist to do all the work. After treatment you will be given a home exercise programme and necessary Do?s and Dont?s in the daily activities of your life. Those needs to be followed strictly, it is no good expecting results if you do not maintain improvements achieved during actual treatment.

    ? Do not share, modify or add to the exercise routine that has been prescribed for you. If you are unsure about the routine ask your Physiotherapist first before you do anything with them.

    ? Do not expect a Physiotherapist to help you build up your muscles. Physiotherapists restore proper muscle function i.e. initiate a contraction, be able to hold a contraction and relax properly after a contraction. Physiotherapists also look to restore and/or improve the sequence of muscle activity to initiate safe and proper movement, in the trade this goes under the guise of a number of expressions such as muscle balance, muscle coordination or muscle activation sequence. All exercises are aimed at doing one or the other BUT they do not increase bulk. There are people out there whose speciality is to bulk up muscle; they are Personal trainers!

    ? Do not have unrealistic expectations. Your Physiotherapist will discuss the most realistic and mutual objectives that can be achieved. You should be given reasons for not being able to venture past that goal. Respect that decision and know that it was made with the best professional intentions. Waiting lists are unacceptably long because of unrealistic expectations of patients and practitioners.

    ? Do not expect the miraculous results in an overnight, every condition has its own pace of recovery, you need to have trust, patience and perseverance and allow Physiotherapist to do their job.

    ? Do not absolve or delegate responsibility for the problem you are being treated for. There is always a cause to an effect and in a lot of cases problems result from poor posture. Be self-critical of your posture and appraise what you do. Non-compliance and its consequences is YOUR FAULT!

    ? Do not assume that the Physiotherapist cannot tell if you are being either economical with the truth or over-elaborate with the description of your symptoms. Physiotherapists are skilled at using cross reference questioning to understand what your problem is ; and if they are anything like myself? I will tell you if I do not think that the symptoms match the presentation of the condition. The human body never lies & I trust neithet do you!!!
    Osteoporosis is a condition of porous bones that makes your bones weak and fragile. There are 3 thing you can do to avoid falling prey to Osteoporosis:
    *Consult your doctor to figure what's the optimum amount of Calcium you should be taking. Pregnant women, for instance, need more calcium than normal people.
    *Take Sun-bath daily to ensure adequate amount of Vitamin D for your body. There are other sources of Vitamin D too. Consult your doctor to find out what are those sources and what's the right amount.
    *Regular exercise is extremely necessary for good bone health. Make a plan and stick to it

    A very practical approach I have been using for most chronic knee pain sufferers planning surgical intervention!!!! It gives amazing post op results!!
    An interesting blog by David Buttler ( from whom I learnt it)!!!

    " Knee replacements in the brain ? the patient?s side
    Posted by David buttler.

    John Barbis, aging Philadelphian PT had a bilateral knee replacement 4 months ago. I have just watched him scurry though the snow like a squirrel and run up stairs like a five year old. He can sit on his haunches and he has been doing all this for months.

    John says ???I felt immediate ownership of my new knees after surgery. But I had prepared well ? more my mind than the rest of my body. I started two months before the surgery. I did left/right knee discrimination exercises 3 times a day, I visualised the surgery, I visualised the IV going in, then going under and waking up. I did lots of mindfulness , the UCLA mindfulness project. I visualised my knees moving after the surgery and I imagined how they would move much more than they did before. I imagined that I would have pain, but I reasoned that it would not be pain related to any danger to my knees. I knew medication would be available if I needed it.?

    ?Having seen knee replacement surgeries before was helpful. I knew they would be bending my knees full range in the operating theatre and I knew it would only be swelling and sensitivity that would limit me post-surgery and this would be temporary and a part of the healing process. I knew the only way I could hurt myself was if I fell. I visualised walking normally as soon as I woke. I only used a walker at night for a few days, but I didn?t want use it as I wanted a normal walking pattern using my arms as soon as possible?.

    ?The new knees were all mine as soon as I woke up and I was glad to say goodbye to the old ones. I wanted to be in total control. I didn?t want anyone pushing on my knees. There is no reason why someone else should have to push on someone?s knee to get range of motion?.

    ?I knew there would be nociception, I knew there would be neural flares but I knew they could be made safe. I avoided the total knee education class offered ? it was scary?

    ?Overall, I worked on my brain more than working on my knees?

    A case study where patient unsuccessfully tried self management after reading from Google and watching videos from YouTube!!

    Title : Effect of Pain Neuroscience Education and dry needling on chronic elbow pain as a result of cyberchondria.

    This case report describes a 31-year-old male who presented with complaints of chronic pain in his right elbow. Detailed subjective examination uncovered that the patient had searched Google for extensive online information relating to his pain, ultimately self-labeling with various diagnoses. After researching in YouTube, the patient self-treated with ice, exercises, neural mobilization, self-massage and taping, all resulting in a failed outcome. Clinical findings revealed trigger points in his right brachioradialis muscle with added symptoms of central pain. This is possibly the first-time description of physical therapy management of brachioradialis myofascial pain syndrome with superadded central pain caused as a result of cyberchondria where the patient used the Internet for arriving at a wrong self-diagnosis and incorrect self-treatment with failed or worsening pain outcomes leading to pain sustenance or chronicity. Physical therapy consisted of Pain Neuroscience Education, dry needling and Exercise Therapy. The patient was completely pain free and fully functional at the end of the sixth session, which was retained at a one-month follow-up.

    How Can A PHYSIOTHERAPIST Treat Morton?s Neuroma?

    What is it?

    Morton?s neuroma is the presence swelling and inflammation of the intermetatarsal plantar nerve. This nerve is located between two of the long bones of the foot. Usually this inflammation and swelling presents itself between the second and third metatarsal spaces (between the second/third or the third/fourth long bones of the foot). Someone who suffers from Morton?s neuroma can have a wide range of symptoms in the forefoot which include; pain, numbness, changes in sensation (paraesthesia), a feeling of walking on razor blades or even feeling like they have a rock in their shoe. During activities where a high amount of load is placed on the foot (eg. Running), a compressive force can be placed upon the metatarsal spaces of the foot, if this force is great enough and consistent enough, it can cause swelling and aggravation to the intermetatarsal plantar nerve.


    Diagnosis of Morton?s Neuroma can be performed by your clinician. If direct palpation of the affected area or compression of the forefoot (Mulder?s sign) reproduces your symptoms, that is a good indication that you suffer from Morton?s neuroma. However, it is important to give your clinician a thorough history so as to rule out the possibility of any potential local bone or ligamentous injuries that may be presenting with similar symptoms.


    Physiotherapist can successfully treat Morton?s neuroma. Because this condition is caused by consistent compression of the nerves between the long bones of the foot, your physiotherapist will work to minimise anything that causes these compressive forces. Treatment can include orthotic/metatarsal pad prescription, an exercise/pilates program aimed at improving your body?s biomechanics (how your foot hits/leaves the ground) and manual therapy to relieve local muscle tension and joint stiffness which may in turn be affecting your foot?s biomechanics. With appropriate physiotherapy intervention, treatment of Morton?s neuroma will take only a matter of weeks. If you have any concerns, do not hesitate to consult your physiotherapist and they will help guide you through your rehabilitation.
