    Types of Sports Injuries Treated

    The different types of sports injuries that can be treated by a sports injury specialist include the following:

    • Bone fracture: A bone may break or fracture when there is an application of sudden force to the bone.
    • Cartilage tear: The cartilage is a flexible and tough shock absorber that helps in the protection of the ends of some bones. The knee and shoulder regions are more prone to cartilage injuries.
    • Dislocation: When the end of a bone moves out of its socket, it leads to dislocation.
    • Concussion: A brain injury that develops due to a blow or injury to the head is known as a concussion.
    • Tendinitis: The swelling or inflammation of the tendons, which are tissues connecting the muscles to the bones, due to repetitive movements over time is known as tendinitis. An example of this condition is jumper’s knee or patellar tendinitis.
    • Sprains: Ligaments connect the bones and stabilize the joints. When the ligament gets stretched too much or torn, it may result in a sprain. Sprain injuries are commonly seen in the knee, ankle, and wrist joint regions.
    • Strains: The overextension of a muscle may lead to its stretching or tearing. This is known as a strain. Examples of a strain are hamstring strain, abdominal strain, and back strain.

    Sports Injury Treatment Process in Mumbai

    The first step towards treating a sports injury is to stop any activity that you are doing. Continuing a physical activity when you suspect an injury could make the injury worse.

    It is best to immediately visit a sports injury specialist for further action. The process of sports injury treatment in Mumbai includes the following steps:

    • The doctor will first recommend a few diagnostic tests to check the type of injury present. These tests include a physical examination of the injured area, taking the patient’s medical history, and ordering imaging tests like x-rays, CT scans, MRI scans, and ultrasounds to obtain images of the inside of the body.
    • Once the type of sports injury is diagnosed, the doctor will prepare a treatment plan based on the specific needs of the patient.
    • If the injury is minor, the doctor suggests the RICE method of treatment at home, which involves Rest, Ice-pack application, Compression, and Elevation of the injured part to reduce the pain and swelling after the injury. The patient’s injury usually gets better in a few weeks in this case.
    • In case of a major injury, the doctor may suggest different treatment options depending on the type and severity of the injury present. The treatment methods suggested may include:
      • Use of a cast, sling, splint, crutches, or other forms of assisted medical devices
      • Taking prescription anti-inflammatory medicines
      • Injections to reduce swelling and pain
      • Physiotherapy sessions to improve muscle strength and restore the function of the injured part
      • Surgery to correct ligament tears, tendon tears, cartilage tears, or bone fractures
    • The patient needs to follow all the post-treatment recovery and rehabilitation instructions given by the doctor to ensure a speedy recovery and prevent injuries in the future.

    Preparing for Sports Injury Treatment

    Some diagnostic tests are ordered by the doctor for an accurate detection and treatment plan of the sports injury. The diagnostic tests that are recommended include:

    • Medical history: The doctor asks how the injury took place, what was done immediately after the injury, and the symptoms the patient is having.
    • Physical examination: The injured area is physically examined by the doctor. The doctor will also check the mobility of the injured area.
    • Imaging tests: X-rays, ultrasounds, MRI scans, and CT scans are the different imaging tests that help obtain clear pictures of the internal structures of the body. This helps in an accurate diagnosis and creating a treatment plan for that patient.

    Depending on the type of treatment being performed, the doctor may recommend the following preparation steps before undergoing treatment for sports injury:

    • The doctor will be providing instructions on how to care for the injury before undergoing medical or surgical intervention.
    • The doctor needs to be informed if the patient has any pre-existing medical conditions or known allergies.
    • The patient needs to discuss with the doctor any medicines or supplements that he/she may be currently taking and whether or not these medications can be continued during treatment.
    • Certain medicines like blood thinners and anti-inflammatory medicines may have to be stopped a couple of days before surgery.
    • The doctor may advise not eating or drinking anything a few hours before surgery.
    • The patient needs to make some preparations at home so that he/she can have some help around during the recovery period.
    • The patient needs to be accompanied by an acquaintance to take him/her home after treatment.

    Rehabilitation and Recovery Programs

    The doctor recommends a few recovery tips following a sports injury treatment to ensure a rapid and smooth recovery. The rehabilitation and recovery procedure involves the following steps:

    • The patient is advised sufficient rest after treatment till the wound heals completely.
    • The patient needs to start with physical therapy sessions as soon as the doctor recommends the same.
    • Physiotherapy aids the patient to regain his/her muscle strength and restoration of function. Physiotherapy exercises also prevent the patient from developing similar injuries in the future.
    • The patient needs to start with gentle exercises first and gradually increase the exercise levels.
    • The range of motion in the treated area is restored gradually.
    • The patient needs to avoid outing any pressure or strain in the treated area till treatment is complete.
    • The patient can only resume his/her normal sporting activities once the doctor and physiotherapist permit for the same.

    Risks and Complications Associated with Sports Injury Treatment

    • Bleeding
    • Skin injury
