Common Sports & Athletic Injuries

ACL Injury
ACL repair or reconstruction are well-known arthroscopic procedures used to repair a torn ACL and is one of the most commonly performed in orthopedic surgery. The goal of this procedure is to repair or reconstruct the torn ACL to restore stability to the knee. The ACL is repaired using small sutures and a graft from either your own hamstring or patella tendon to reinforce the newly repaired ligament. The repaired ligament is then threaded through small tunnels in the knee and reattached to its intended position in the knee using small screws.

Meniscus Injury
 A meniscus tear is a common knee injury that is often sustained during sports and physical activities due to a sudden change in direction, forceful twisting of the knee or direct impact to the knee. However, meniscus tears do not only occur in athletes and can often be the result of wear and tear to the knee as well as the result of osteoarthritis of the knee.

Sprains & Strains

Overview

Sprains and strains are very common injuries that share very common causes and symptoms. However, they both involve different parts of the body.

Sprain

A sprain occurs when ligaments are stretched or torn beyond their normal range. Ligaments are tough bands of fibrous tissue that connect bone to bone. Sprains occur in the ankles, knees, wrists, and thumbs. The ankle is the most common joint to be sprained.

Strain

A strain occurs when a muscle or tendon is stretched or torn beyond its normal range. A tendon is a fibrous cord of tissue that connects muscles to bones.  The lower back and hamstrings are the most common muscles to be strained.

Causes

Sprains often occur while walking or exercising on an uneven surface, quickly pivoting during physical activity, landing on an outstretched hand during a fall, skiing, or playing racquet sports. Strains often occur due to slipping on ice, running, jumping, throwing, lifting heavy objects, or lifting in an awkward position.

Symptoms

Symptoms of a sprain include pain, swelling, bruising, limited ability to move the injured joint, and a loud “pop” at the time the injury occurs. Symptoms of a strain include pain, swelling, muscle spasms, and a limited ability to move the affected muscle.

Treatment

Treatment of sprains and strains depend no the severity of the injury and the joint or muscle involved. In mild to moderate cases of sprains and strains, rest and ice is sufficient treatment. In severe sprains and strains, immobilization with a brace or splint may be necessary. In rare cases of a severely torn ligament or a ruptured muscle, surgery may be needed.

Shin Splints
Shin splints are one of the most common lower extremity injuries among athletes and active people and most often develop after repetitive athletic activities. This condition is caused by the inflammation of one or more of the muscles, tendons or tissues around the tibia. Many people notice the onset of Shin Splints after a change in athletic routines or taking on a more intensive workout program. Other risk factors for shin splints include having flat feet as well as working out with improper footwear.

Joint Dislocations
A joint dislocation occurs when one or more of the bones within a joint is pushed forcefully out of its correct anatomical position and is common in the shoulder, elbow hip or knee.  Most joint dislocations are caused by either an accident or a direct blow to the joint. It is important to seek immediate medical attention after a dislocation occurs as other trauma to the joint, ligaments or soft tissue may also have occurred.  Attempting to relocate the joint yourself is dangerous and should not be attempted.

If you have a joint dislocation the symptoms can include:

  • Pain in the joint
  • A visible deformity in the joint
  • Reduced mobility of the joint
  • Numbness or tingling around the joint

Rotator Cuff Injury
The rotator cuff consists of four muscle tendons that attach to the top of the shoulder and the rotator cuff helps hold the shoulder in its socket and rotates and raises the arm. Rotator Cuff Tears can be caused by an accident or injury, such as a fall or direct impact onto the shoulder, or as the result of wear and tear of the shoulder.

Golfer & Tennis Elbow
Golfer’s Elbow and Tennis Elbow are commonly used terms to describe inflammation of the tendons on the inside and outside of the elbow due to repetitive strain or stress on the tendon. Despite what the names may suggest, Golfer’s Elbow and Tennis Elbow are more common in those whose jobs require repetitive motion of the arm and grasping that it is in athletes. In fact, contractors, plumbers, painters, and other laborers are among the most commonly affected by these conditions.
