Sports rehabilitation

The 21st century has witnessed a prominent rise in the field of sports, with athletes being regarded as major idols and role models. To achieve the best possible results, athletes undergo rigorous training, pushing themselves to their limits. This is why proper monitoring and training is crucial in ensuring their physical health. A sports physiotherapist plays a vital role in enhancing an athlete’s performance by taking care of their overall well-being. The physiotherapist assesses the athlete before every seasonal and international match, managing their diet, exercise, rehabilitation, medication, and sleep routine.

Sports injuries are a common condition treated by physiotherapists. At Movement Solutions BD, we have treated a wide range of athletes, from weightlifters to synchronized swimmers, gym-goers to trekkers, footballers to cricketers, and there is not one injury we have not successfully treated.

The Role of Physiotherapy in Sports:

Physiotherapy has a significant impact on sports and helps in treating athletes suffering from acute and chronic injuries, such as sprains, strains, or muscle stress in joints, heart, lungs, and cardiovascular system. It also manages neurological disorders. Some of the key roles of physiotherapy in sports include.

Types of Sports Injuries:

Different sports injuries result in different symptoms and complications. The most common types of sports injuries are below:

Sprains: Overstretching or tearing of ligaments results in a sprain. Ligaments are tissues that connect two bones in a joint.

Strains: Overstretching or tearing of muscles or tendons results in a strain. Tendons are cords of tissue that connect bone to muscle.

Knee Injuries: Any injury that interferes with the movement of the knee joint can be considered a sports injury, ranging from an overstretch to a tear in the muscles or tissues in the knee.

Swollen Muscles: Swelling is a natural reaction to an injury, and swollen muscles may be painful and weak.

Achilles Tendon Rupture: The Achilles tendon is a strong tendon located at the back of the ankle. During sports, it can break or rupture, causing sudden, severe pain and difficulty walking.

Fractures: Bone fractures are commonly referred to as broken bones.

Dislocations: Sports injuries may cause a bone to be dislocated, forcing it out of its socket and resulting in pain, swelling, and weakness.

Rotator Cuff Injury: The rotator cuff is composed of four muscles that work together to keep the shoulder moving in all directions. A tear in any of these muscles can weaken the rotator cuff.

Treatment of Sports Injuries

The RICE method (rest, ice, compression, elevation) is a commonly used treatment regimen for mild sports injuries. It is best to follow the RICE method within the first 24 to 36 hours after the injury to reduce swelling and prevent further pain and bruising.

Both over-the-counter and prescription medications are available to treat sports injuries and provide relief from pain and swelling. If the injury looks or feels severe, it is recommended to seek medical attention. Emergency care should be sought if the injured joint shows signs of severe swelling and pain, visible deformities, popping or crunching sounds, weakness or instability, or if there are difficulties breathing, dizziness, or a fever.

In cases of serious sports injuries, surgery and physical therapy may be required. If the injury does not heal within two weeks, it is recommended to contact a doctor for an appointment.
