      Frequently Asked Questions

      The common causes resulting in sports injuries are overuse, forceful impact, or application of greater force than the body can bear. Both acute and chronic injuries can happen in sports. For example, if an injury is caused by something sudden, like a sprained ankle, it is termed an acute injury. On the other hand, repeated overuse of muscles or joints can result in a chronic injury.

      Improper techniques or structural abnormalities can also cause chronic injuries. The damage may be more severe in sports than you think, so a medical exam is crucial. For example, what seems like a sprained ankle to you might be a fracture. As a Mumbai resident, you may want to consider consulting with a renowned sports injury specialist in Mumbai, such as Dr. Aditya Sai.

      • Ankle Sprain- Pain, swelling and stiffness
      • Bruises- Small bleeds in the skin caused by a blow
      • Cuts and Abrasions- They are caused by falls, and mainly knees and hands are prone.
      • Concussion- A blow on the head can cause minor and reversible brain injury. It can lead to unconsciousness, headache, dizzy feeling and short term memory loss.

      • Dehydration- You can lose too much fluid that causes heat exhaustion or heat stroke.

      • Cooling down post-workout is essential, and it should take 2 minutes, similar to the warm-up.
      • Drink water; hydration is vital. It prevents heat stroke.
      • Increase the contraction and performance ability of the muscles with stretching exercises. They reduce the risk of injury. Start the stretch slowly and reach the tension point. Do not take it to a painful end. Hold the stretch for about 20 seconds.
      • Ensure to use proper equipment, wear support providing shoes that help with foot issues that can cause injuries.
      • Learn the correct methods of the sport.
      • Take rest and avoid exercising when you feel tired or in pain.
      • Take your time during strength training and work through the entire range of motion each time.
      • In case you have a sports injury, do participate in needed rehabilitation before going back to playing.

      You can even consult with a sports injury specialist in Mumbai to know in detail about the prevention of injuries. It is becoming a competitive field of medicine, and Dr. Aditya Sai, one of the top doctors, can help you understand more.

      A typical treatment regimen for sport-related injuries is the RICE method. It represents Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation. 

      The technique is effective for mild injuries. It works the best if you employ the RICE method within 24-36 hours after the injury. It avoids additional pain, decreases swelling and bruising in the early time of an injury. If you feel that the injury is severe or it looks that way, do seek medical help. Emergency care is needed if the injured joint shows any of the following-

      • Excess swelling and pain
      • Lumps, bumps or other visible deformities.
      • Audible popping or crunching sound when you use the joint.
      • Inability to put weight on the joint
      • Instability
      • Difficulty breathing
      • Dizziness
      • Fever

      Physical therapy becomes necessary in case of severe injuries. You should see a doctor if the injury doesn’t get better in two weeks. 

      Keep the following things in mind while choosing a specialist for sports injuries-

      • Referrals Help
        You can ask your physician for a list of recommended sport medicine specialists. Your family, friends and other healthcare providers can help with suggestions as well. Take out some time to check their credentials and expertise. Shortlist the ones you feel are right, then call up their office for a consultation visit. Finally, meet and consult with the doctor.
      • Research The Doctor’s Credentials
        When selecting a sports specialist doctor, a significant factor is a board certification that needs to be considered. It represents that the doctor has the required training, talent and experience to provide care. In addition, check whether the doctor has any history of malpractice or disciplinary actions.
      • Consider The Expertise
        While facing sports-related health problems, experience matters a lot. The results are likely to be better if the doctor has enough expertise in dealing with the problem or injury. Ask the staff how many patients they have treated for the same issue before.
      • Gender Consideration
        A sports injury can involve personal discussion. Therefore it is necessary that you feel comfortable with your sports injury doctor. Your gender consideration is also vital in sports medicine. With the developments, sports medicine specialists are getting skilled in treating men and women differently.
      • Check Hospital Quality
        Where your doctor works matters, as it will be your hospital as well. Thus, you need to check their quality of care, cleanliness, ambulatory surgical services where the doctor provides care, etc. Patients at top-rated hospitals report lesser complications and better survival rates, so hospital quality is vital.
      • Patient Reviews
        You can get a direct insight into how doctors behave and operate their practice by reading what other patients think of them. When people write a review, they consider their experience with appointment schedules, waiting periods, environment, location and staff behaviour.
      • Know Insurance Coverage
        It is practical when it comes to insurance. If you want to get the most out of it and spend as little as possible from your pocket, you may need to choose a specific doctor or hospital that accepts your insurance. Credentials, expertise, results, quality are still necessary to check even if they accept your plan.
