Unfortunately, when taking part in sport or physical activity there is always a risk of becoming injured. Here at Dynamic Regenerative Medicine we provide a Sports Injury Clinic that specialises in sports injury treatment within the areas of Solihull and Edgbaston Birmingham. Within this article we would like to briefly discuss the common sports injuries along with possible treatment options available.
Soft Tissue Injuries
Soft tissue injuries include; tendon injuries, ligament injuries, or acute muscle tears. Acute sports related soft tissue injuries will normally be associated with sudden over exertion, an awkward movement, or via direct trauma.
Sprain often occur due to an over stretching of a ligament, resulting in micro-tearing which can vary in different grades of severity. Ligaments connect bone to bone at a joint, and are strong but can only withstand so much force at one time before they suffer with sprain.
A strain is related to a muscle injury, from over stretching or over exertion of force. A muscle strain is often referred to as a 'pulled muscle'.
Chronic injuries and sports injuries often include overuse injuries that can happen progressively over time, or acute injuries that have not been managed well. Examples or chronic injuries include - varying types of tendinitis, joint pain, shin splints or stress fractures. Chronic or overuse injuries usually occur from repetition exercise, or poor form during exercise. Chronic injuries can be just as problematic as acute injuries, and hugely affect sporting performance.
Whether you are suffering from an acute or chronic sports injury, either can be hugely compromising to your game if not correctly addressed. Below are some of the common sports injuries we see at our Sports Injury Clinics in Solihull and Edgbaston Birmingham:
low back pain (often golf related)
planter fasciitis (often running related)
shoulder impingement or tendinitis
hamstring or gluteal tendinopathy
various types of bursitis
What to do immediately following an acute sports injury?
RICE should always be used following sports injuries. Follow the RICE method within the first 24 to 36 hours after the injury. If your injury looks or feels severe, it is always advised to get it looked at.
