Sports Injury Treatment in Bangalore

Exercising, doing work-outs in gym, playing sports are all important to keep your body fit and flexible to lead an active life. However sometimes these can lead to injuries. You can get hurt while you are walking, exercising, playing sports or doing any other physical activity. Such injuries due to sports, exercise or physical activities are termed as sports injuries. A sports injury can happen suddenly or it can develop over a period of time.

Most of the times sports injuries are caused due to basic mistakes like, exercising without warming up / cooling down, not wearing proper protective equipment, playing sports which involves jumping, running, tackling, pitching, etc.

Dr. Deepak G Shivarathre has 18 years of experience in treating sports injury patients in UK & India and is considered as a specialist in providing sports injury treatment in Bangalore. The good news is that most of the sports injuries can be treated non-surgically, while only certain injuries require surgical treatment, which can be done using the minimally invasive techniques.

Common Sports Injuries

Broken Bone / Fracture

A fracture is a break or a crack in a bone. It occurs when a force exerted against a bone is stronger than the bone can bear. The most common sites for bone fractures are the wrist, ankle and hip.

Bone Dislocation

Dislocation occurs when the end of a bone moves out of its normal position in a joint. For example, if your shoulder pops out of its socket, it’s dislocated.

Sprains

A sprain happens when a ligament stretches too much or tears. Ligaments connect bones and stabilize joints. These injuries can be mild or severe, and they’re common in your ankle, knee and wrist.

Strains

A strain occurs when you overextend a muscle and it stretches or tears. Examples include hamstring strain, back strain and abdominal strain.

Cartilage Tear

Cartilage is like a flexible shock absorber that covers and protects the ends of some bones. Cartilage injuries can occur in joints such as your knee and shoulder.

Tendinitis

Tendinitis occurs when your tissues that connect muscles to bones (tendons) become swollen and inflamed. It’s caused by repetitive movements over time. An example is jumper’s knee (patellar tendonitis).

Concussion

A blow to the head usually causes this injury, causing disorientation and dizziness, among other symptoms.

Treatment of Mild Sports Injury

The RICE method is a common treatment regimen for sports injuries. It stands for:

R = Rest, I = Ice, C = Compression, E = Elevation

For best results, follow the RICE method within the first 24 to 36 hours after the injury. It can help reduce swelling and prevent additional pain and bruising in the early days after a sports injury. Over-the-counter and prescription medications are available to treat sports injuries. Most of them provide relief from pain and swelling.

Sports injuries can happen to anyone. People trip and fall, some collide, while other do incorrect workouts, etc. Just by taking simple precautions like doing proper warm up before exercise or playing any sports, using the right gear (like the right shoes), we can avoid the risk of sports injury.

I encourage you to consult a Orthopedic doctor and explore the options for sports injury. Most of the sports injury can be treated by the RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression & Elevation) technique. Surgery or plaster casting is required only for severe cases of sports injury.
