Sports Injuries: Treatment, Procedure, Cost And Side Effects

What is Sports Injuries?

A sports injury is any injury related to the sports activity that may occur while exercising or playing or performing on the ground or court which involves the musculoskeletal system including the muscles, bones and cartilage. Sports injury is something every person, involved in some kind of hard physical activities from an average gym-goer to the serious athlete, may experience at some point of time. Accidents, bad form, an less or in sufficient warm-up or from performing exercises beyond your current level of strength or fitness are commonly known as the main causes for sports injuries.

Common Types of Sports Injuries

Although, there are numerous sports injuries which have come up in various forms over the past few years, but only some of the them are most common injuries that anyone can experience in casual time.

Muscle Sprains and Strains

Usually a trauma such as a fall or blow to the body that knocks a joint out of its position are usually leads to a Sprain. A sprain is a stretch or tear of a ligament, the band of connective tissues that joins the end of one bone with another. Ankles, Knees and wrists are the most vulnerable and sprain-proned areas of human body.

A person may suffer a strain, in case, his/her muscle or tendon, a cord of tissue which connects muscle to bone, suffers a twist, stretch, or tear. Strains are acute, non-contact injuries that are led by overstretching or over-contraction. Pain, Muscle spasm, loss of strength are the most common symptoms which are experienced during a Strain.

Knee Injuries

As Knee in the human body has a complex structure, and is also most crucial part in weight-bearing capacity of human, it comes into the category of most commonly injured joint. Injuries to knee can be from less severe to serious.

Runner's knee in which pain or tenderness may be felt around or under the knee cap, Iliotibial band syndrome that causes pain on the outer side of the knee, and Tendinitis or Tendinosis is caused by degeneration within a tendon, usually where it joins the bone, are are some of the less critical but still painful knee problems.

Bone bruises or damage to the cartilage or ligaments are kept in the category of most critical injuries. Generally, cartilage in the knee can be of two types. First a crescent-shaped disc called meniscus which absorbs shock between the thigh and lower leg bones. While the surface-coating cartilage are the second type of cartilage.

Dislocation of Joints

The dislocation of a joint is kept into the category of emergency situation that needs immediate medical treatment. Some of the hand joints are the most likely to be dislocated part of human body and the shoulder joints are most frequently dislocated part for that matter. Still, there are some uncommon part of human body that have the least chances of being dislocated that are knees, hips, and elbow.

Traumatic Brain Injury

An immediate or unusual physical assault on the head may cause damage to the brain which in medical terms called Traumatic brain injury (TBI). A closed injury to the head may result in case the head forcefully hits an object, but the object does not break through the skull.

Spinal Cord Injury

When the cells in the spinal cord suffers a damage caused by a traumatic event, it is called Spinal cord injury (SCI).

What are the causes of sport injuries?

Suffering an injury is something very common for a sportsperson, as sports are unpredictable and anything can happen on the ground or court or field. For instance, Even an athlete, sometimes, gets injured due to something completely unforeseen. There are a number of circumstances in which a person may suffer a sports injury but those numbers are absolutely not limited.

  1. Lack of nutrients
  2. Over-training
  3. Fatigue
  4. Hormone levels (females)
  5. Previous injury Change in climate
  6. Change in or poor equipment
  7. Muscle imbalances
  8. Dehydration
  9. Weakened muscles, bones, tendons, or ligaments
  10. Increase in activity or mileage
  11. Change in playing surface

What sports injuries can lead to death?

Though sports injuries rarely contribute to fatalities, but the traumatic brain injury is an sports-related injury which may lead to the death. Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a major cause of death and disability in the various countries in the world. An sportsperson who survives a TBI may face effects that last a few days, or the rest of their lives. Effects of TBI can include impaired thinking or memory, movement, sensation (vision or hearing), or emotional functioning (personality changes, depression) and even, death. These issues may not only cause a death but also many times can have lasting effects on the related person, families and communities.

What is the Sports Injuries treatment?

There is a common phrase that Prevention is always better than cure. Going by this, let us first see some of the important tips that help prevent the sports injuries.

  1. Allow body to recover by taking regular off from particular sport
  2. Wearing the appropriate & proper fit protective equipment
  3. Conditioning exercises during practice to strengthen muscles
  4. Stretching exercises after games or practice to increase flexibility
  5. Using the proper technique during the playing season
  6. Taking breaks or rest periods during practice and games to reduce injuries & prevent heat illness.
  7. Do not play through pain
  8. Avoid heat illness by drinking plenty of fluids before, during and after exercise or play

A systematic and proper treatment is most important after one suffers an sports injury. There are some general treatments that may be helpful to treat injuries caused by sports.

PRICE therapy: PRICE therapy can be helpful to treat some minor injuries, such as mild sprains and strains, for the initial treatment at home by using for two or three days. PRICE stands for protection, rest, ice, compression and elevation.

Pain relief: In pain relief treatment, a person may take some common medicines with doctors or physician’s prescription such as Painkillers, such as paracetamol, to help ease the pain, Ibuprofen and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) tablets or creams to ease pain and reduce any swelling.

Immobilisation: Immobilisation helps to prevent further damage by reducing movement. It may also reduce pain, muscle swelling and muscle spasm.

Physiotherapy: Physiotherapy is a specialist treatment in which techniques such as massage, manipulation and exercises are used to improve range of motion, strengthen the surrounding muscles, and return the normal function of the injured area. Physiotherapy helps a person recovering from a long-term injury.

Surgery and procedures: Most Critical injuries such as severely broken bones may require corrective treatment. This includes a manipulation or surgery to fix the bones with wires, plates, screws or rods.

Groin pull - Groin pulls cause more discomfort than ankle sprain. You will need to frequently treat the groin with ice, compression and ample amount of rest to recover from the pull. Not giving enough rest to the groin can cause even more damage to the area. Constant stress and pressure on the groin will not help you recover from a groin pull.

Hamstring strain - Hamstring strains take a lot of time to recover in most of the cases, usually about 4-5 weeks at least. It is caused when the muscles in the back of your thighs receive damage. Different physiotherapy methods and important exercises help to recover from such a situation. But in some cases operation needs to be conducted to heal the hamstring.

Shin splints - Shin splints are experienced while running extensively. Shin splints can be easily recovered from with the help of ice packs, compression and over-the-counter medicines which helps to get rid of the discomfort and pain.

Knee injury - Knee injuries can be really serious in many cases. Depending on the intensity and area which has received the injury, a person is recommended treatment. ACL Injury and Patellofemoral syndrome are some of the most common kinds of injury which can be related to knee injuries.

Platelet Rich Plasma In Sports Injuries

Sports injuries are a common problem, where various types of musculoskeletal injuries can occur during the physical activities. These injuries can either be acute or chronic in nature. In athletes, such injuries can pose as a risk to their careers, which makes it essential for the physicians to provide the most appropriate treatment. It is mandatory to provide a prompt, safe and quick treatment that can restore the athlete’s preinjury level of participation in sports.

Various treatment approaches are present for treating sports injuries. The use of intra-lesion blood injection is being made for addressing the musculoskeletal injuries. An easy and minimally invasive method of using concentrated autologous growth factors in treating sports injuries is the use of platelet rich plasma (PRP). It is a fraction of the blood plasma that contains a higher concentration of platelets than normal plasma, along with growth factors.

  1. PRP is used in the treatment of both soft tissue and bone injuries. Growth factors have a positively influencing effect on the healing process of connective tissue components.
  2. There is a huge difference between the anatomy and functions of tendons, ligaments, muscles and joint capsules. Hence, the site of injection of PRP also varies.
  3. The cellular tension in the tissue and the collagen structure is affected after the administration of PRP.
  4. Use of PRP is popular in the treatment of an Achilles tendon. For injecting PRP, an ultrasound scan is done, the site of injection is accurately identified and then PRP is administered.
  5. Proper location of the site of injury and deciding the accurate injection zone prior to the injection of PRP makes it easier to facilitate treatment and eliminate discomfort.
  6. Administration of PRP should be considered secondary to physical therapy and other conservative means of treatment.
  7. Enthesopathy is a discomfort in the area where the attachment of tendons, ligaments and the articular capsule is present. The use of PRP is increasing in the treatment of this condition. It has an inflammatory nature and presents as epicondylitis or capsulitis.
  8. Studies have proved that PRP is an effective alternative to injection of steroids for an anti-inflammatory effect. Steroids majorly provide only symptomatic relief, whereas PRP is more definitive.
  9. PRP has also found an increased use in the area of surgical procedures of knees. It is used to increase the efficiency of the healing grafts placed in the knee during reconstructive surgeries.
  10. For treatment of bone injuries, use of PRP has shown an improved quality and rate of bone healing. Even in cases of an infected injury, PRP aids in healing efficiently.
  11. No known side effects or complications after use of PRP have been observed, which makes it a sought after option in management of sports injuries.

Sports Injury In Children - Know Everything About It!

Sports injuries are very common in children because in this age they are most likely to involve themselves in a lot of outdoor activities. A sports injury can be minor cuts and bruises or can be a major fracture or broken bones. The bones of children are more porous than children, therefore injuries can happen more easily. Dehydration, not wearing proper sports equipment and not warming up before makes a child more vulnerable to a sports injury.

The common types of sports injury in children are as follows:

  1. Contusion- It is a portion of tissue or skin in which blood capillaries have been damaged. The effects may vary from a hematoma to compartment syndrome.
  2. Lacerations- A laceration is a deeply cut wound, that is, a tear in the skin or flesh. In case of a laceration try to wash the wound as soon as possible.
  3. Sprains- A sprain is a stretch or a tear in the ligament. A ligament is a fibrous tissue that joins the bones and joints. Bracing and proper rest can cure sprains. However severe cases may require surgery.
  4. Strain- The cure for a strain is similar to that of sprain. Rest, icing, compression and elevation are the initial steps to cure a strain. It mostly occurs in the muscles and myotendinous joints.
  5. Rotator cuff tendonitis- Repeating overhead activities or dislocation or contusion of the shoulder causes rotator cuff tendonitis. Shoulder pain that doesn't cease or pain that occurs when a person tries to do a certain overhead activity are the common symptoms.
  6. Thrower’s shoulder/elbow- When a child practices throwing, an excessive number of times they are likely to get thrower's shoulder or thrower’s elbow.
  7. Osgood Schlatter disease- This disease arises when a child is in their growth phase. Irritation and inflammation at the growth surface of the shin bone give rise to Osgood Schlatter disease. This can be cured by stretching and strengthening exercises.
  8. Jumper’s knee- When there is inflammation or irritation of the growth plate at the bottom of the patella. This disease is similar to Osgood Schlatter disease and usually observed in children in their growing phase.
  9. Shoulder dislocation- In this type of injury, the upper arm bone comes out of the shoulder socket. It is an extremely painful condition generally caused by an extremely hard collision.
  10. Patella dislocation- It is a kind of knee injury in which the patella or the kneecap comes out of its original position.

Sports Injuries - An Insight!

Sports Injuries are very common and often results from using improper gear or poor training practices and refers to all those injuries that are faced by an individual while playing a sport. It is essential to understand the preventive measures as well as the therapeutic methods at a basic level.

Types of Sports Injuries
Sports injuries can be categorized as an Acute Injury and a Chronic Injury. Acute Sports Injury occurs suddenly during playing or exercising. Sudden pain, fracture, and strained back are some examples of acute injury. Acute injuries don’t possess any serious threats to one’s life and can be easily healed over a period of time, depending on the injury and the physical conditions of the individual. Chronic Sports Injuries, on the other hand, are those injuries which occur for a long time and is also termed as an overuse injury. Examples include Achilles tendinitis, runner's knee, and swimmer's shoulder.

Steps to follow after an injury
If you have encountered a sports injury, then it is advisable to follow four simple steps.

  1. The first step involves taking adequate rest. One should reduce their regular activities and take as much rest as possible to regain normal condition.
  2. The second step comprises of using ice packs on the affected area for 15-20 minutes. This should be followed at least three times a day. But don’t exceed the limit of 20 minutes, as over application might result in worsening the situation.
  3. The third step involves compression, i.e., exerting even pressure on the affected area, which might help in reducing swelling.
  4. The last step comprises of elevation. Always try to have the affected area at an elevated level to stimulate speedy recovery. Suppose you have hurt your foot badly, then always place your foot on a pillow and then take rest.

If you follow these steps, then you can expect to heal your injuries gradually. But make sure, that in the case of chronic sports injury, you immediately visit a doctor and follow his prescribed medication and measures. The stated steps can help in case of minor acute sports injuries only.

Precautionary measures for sports injuries
If you want to reduce the risk of sports injuries, then include warm up as a mandatory activity before starting off with any sport or exercise. It is believed that proper warm up can reduce the chances of injuries that can occur during playing sports or exercising. Apart from warm up, you can keep few points in mind to avoid sports injuries like never twist your knees while stretching, don’t do overstretching, know your body limits and act accordingly.

Adhering to established standard best practices while involved in sports can minimize the occurrence of an injury to a great extent.

Arthroscopic Surgeries For Sports Injury!

Arthroscopic Surgeries For Sports Injury!

When it comes to contact sports like football or basketball, orthopaedic injuries are unavoidable. Given the high risk of falling and accidents and wear and tear of muscles, injuries like stress fractures, torn ligaments, ACL tears and chronic pain are common complaints a sports doctor comes across. Not all orthopaedic doctors can deal with sports injuries. Sports medicine is a specialisation of this field that deals exclusively with the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of injuries sustained while playing sports. A sports doctor must not only treat an injury but must also speed up the healing process so as to allow their patients to return to the field as quickly as possible.

When it comes to surgeries for sports injuries, the smaller the incision made, the faster an injury will heal. This has led to the popularisation of minimally invasive surgeries. Arthroscopy is one such type of minimally invasive surgery that is used by doctors to diagnose and treat joint injuries and musculoskeletal conditions.

This procedure is typically performed on a patient under general or spinal anaesthesia. When being used to diagnose a condition, it involves the insertion of a thin fibre optic tube with a light, magnifying lens and camera into the body through a small incision no bigger than a button hole. This allows the doctors to examine the bone and joint in detail. In cases where this type of surgery is being used to treat a patient, specially designed instruments may also be inserted through an additional small incision to repair the injury.

Arthroscopic surgeries for sports injuries are often used in combination with other approaches or open surgery. One of the most common conditions, this type of surgery is used to treat are tendon tears in the knee. Other conditions that can also be treated with arthroscopic surgeries are torn ligaments and cartilage, inflammation of the joint lining, carpal tunnel syndrome, tears in the rotator cuffs and loosening of bones and cartilage.
After the surgery, the incision will be stitched shut and a dressing will be placed over it. In most cases, patients require almost no pain medication as compared to the medication needed to recover from open surgery.

However, it can take several days for the joint to recover and for the incision to heal. Some of the benefits of this kind of surgery are:

  1. Faster healing
  2. Minimal scarring
  3. Lesser blood loss
  4. No danger of cutting muscles or tendons
  5. More comfortable rehabilitation
  6. Faster return to the sports field

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Orthopedist.

Hello,

Is video ke zariye, sports injuries hmare knee joint ke around, uske bare me information dena chahunga. Knee joint sports injury bhut hi common hain. Kayi bar bike or road traffic accidents me bhi milti hain. Is s pehle me apko knee joint ke structure ki information dunga so that aap is problem ko easily samjh payein. Knee joint ke alwa knee me bhut sari chizen or bhi hoti hain jisko diagnose krne ke lia hume MRI krna pdta hai. Inme ligaments, ACL, shock absorber (meniscus), upar ki layer jo hai use cartilage bola jata hai. Agar hum ligament ki bat kren to ACL, sabse common injury hai. Isme patient ka knee twist hone lgta hai. Iske karan patient sports me participate nhi kar pate hain.

Ligament injury ke lia arthroscopy surgery iske lia recommend ki jati hai jisme latest technology ke through inko reconstruct kia jata hai. ACL surgery sabse common surgery hai. Post-operation, rehabitation ki jrurat pdti hai. Baki ligaments ka bhi surgical treatments kia jata hai. Meniscus ka role bhut important hai. Agar meniscus ki problem hai to hum ise replace krne ki advice dete hain. Is se weight bearing thik rehta hai. Or patient ke lia ye joint iske baad normal function krta hai. Kayi bar meniscu repair ke layak nhi hota, aise case me torn portion ko nikal dia jata hai jisko hum mastectomy operation kehte hain. Ye arthroscopy se kia ja skta hai. Ab last hum baat krenge cartilage ke bare me.

Ye ek soft layer hoti hai or iska regeneration bhut kam hota hai. Isme sports me bhut problem hoti hai or agar ye unattended rhe to joint khrab bhi ho jata hai. Is case ke lia surgical technique available hai jisko hum autologous chondrocyte implantation (ACI) or micro-fracture technique bolte hain. Iske through cartilage ki layer ko regenerate kia jata hai. Sports injury ko prevent kia ja skta hai agar aap apne aap ko warm up kren, apne muscles ki care kren, proper training len before going for any sport. Agar prevention ke baad bhi apko injury hoti hai to surgery ke through apko vapas sports me le jane ki koshish kar skte hain. Or ye successful kafi cases me rehta hai.

Sports Injuries - Causes & Treatment!
Hi!

I am Dr. Shrish Dutt Mishra. I am a senior orthopedic surgeon, sports injury specialist. And I am attached with Indraprastha Apollo Hospitals, New Delhi and also functioned from my center Southend Orthopaedic Centre for sports injury in Greater Kailash Part-2, New Delhi. So, today we are going to talk about sports injury. Again this part of the orthopedics is not elaborately understood and in terms of evaluation of the injury. The causes of injuries and the treatment of the injury. Not all sports injuries require a treatment and surgery. Most of the injuries are treated consecutively. They are treated starting from the first evaluation of the injury. Each sport has certain bio-mechanics. Like in football the anterior crucial ligament injury is very common. It is because that the dynamics of the sport, player and how the game goes about it. Similarly, in all the swing sport it is the shoulder, elbow, wrist injuries are very common. But the causes of these injuries are very very different.

Whenever you are treating sports injuries, the treatment of a professional sportsperson and a ledger sports person, club level sportsperson is very different. The causes, evaluation and the treatment are very different. To put it in very small terms, professionally these are the over injuries. The club level player, it is the poor conditioning and the poor technique which contribute to the injuries. So, I always said that the sports injuries are dynamic injuries. Unless you correct the dynamics, the injuries going to recur, eventually become a chronic recurrent injury and unable to the conservative treatment and the frustration of the player comes in. So, the first time the injury has to be handled where the doctor knows the dynamics of your sport.

What I mean the dynamics of sports is how you play that game. Every swing has certain mechanics attached. if those mechanics are not rightly followed, leads vague concentration of energy to a particular point. Like tennis elbow, shoulder pains, wrist pains, ligament injuries, these are very common injuries. I am personally myself sportsperson. I have played the majority of the sports. Right now I am a very low handicap golf player. So, when I handle golf injuries, it is entirely a different scenario. Fortunately, I am also attached with cricket. Right now I and my team are handling Afghanistan International Team. Where we take care of the evaluation of the players and prediction of the injuries. So, friends the bottom line in this short video is that whenever there is any pain following your sports or the pain happening during the sports or after the sports, you can obviously wait for 5-6 days, put an ice, put an anti-inflammatory gel and rest to the part. And if it becomes OK, that's Ok.

it can happen to anybody. What if your pain is persisting, if you are unable to play, please do not push yourself beyond a certain limit because that is where your injury gives it too much. Consult a sports injury specialist. He will help you with right evaluation and treatment of that injury. Point of this talk was to enlighten that remember all sports are associated with injury. There is nothing to be afraid of. Play any sport. Functionality is the prime thing of the life. So, play all the sports. Injuries do happen but if they are treated well, they are cured and you play a better sport.

Thank you very much.

P.R.I.C.E.: How Is It The First Aid For Sports Injuries?
Hi,

I am Dr Rajiv Mehta, Physiotherapist, practicing since 1999. I have been working in sports physiotherapy, Orthopaedic physiotherapy, neuro physiotherapy and Paratik physiotherapy.

Today I am going to talk about sports injuries, now many of the sports are coming up in India like cricket, football, marathons, gyming, badminton due to all of increase in this sports, injuries in related to this sports also increased. I am talking about few of the common injuries like Supraspinatus, it is a shoulder injury very common in badminton, bowling, cricket, another one epicondylitis that is also known as tennis elbow very common in tennis and cricket. Ankle sprain, very common injury in football also in marathons. Shin pain very much common in marathons, people who run in marathons get pain in their leg. Then knee injury, very common in football, cricket, marathons also. So what happens when this injury occurs, either sports person leave their sports or change their sports but believe me there is no need of leaving sports. One thing is sure that these injuries cannot be treated at home by any of the home remedie, nor rest only can treat this injuries. So visit a sports physiotherapist who will not only rehabilitate your current injury but also will prevent the further damage to that injury, one of the magical treatment for this sports injury that I am going to tell you that you should always do whenever there is any injury that is price P.R.I.C.E. P stands for Positioning, whenever there is any injury to any part first of all position it, stable it with any splint with any cast whatsoever is available, then R, R is for rest, keep that part in complete rest do not try to move that part and see whether the injury is at what extent, keep that to the professionals only. I is for Ice, immediately apply ice this ice prevent swelling of that area and reduces the injury by about 80%. C, C stands for compression apply a compressive bandage, crepe bandage over the injured area. Then E, E is for elevation, elevate the part above the heart so that swelling doesn't stay there the educate moves towards the heart. If you apply this P.R.I.C.E phenomenon in any of the injury, surely you will be back to your sports as soon as possible and trust your sports physiotherapist visit him as soon as possible, so that you can enjoy your sports, you can enjoy your prash. Regarding sports injury, I am treating many of the Olympians, many of the film stars, many celebrities and it's my promise that you won't have to leave sports neither you have to be on the rest for much of the time.

If you have any sports injury, visit to velocity fitness clinic its a velocity promise that you will gain your velocity as soon as possible.

Thanks, I am Dr Rajeev Mehta sports physiotherapist.
