To start it off, sports medicine isn’t just antibiotics there are lots of physical treatments. When a player gets hurt they take antibiotics, but they are also exercising whatever they injured to keep that in shape. Some of the most common injuries you can get are Ankle sprain, Groin pull, and Hamstring strain. For all of those injuries you need to exercise them after or that part of your body isn’t going to be as strong as everything else. If its not as strong as everything else then you won’t perform at your best. An article written by the National Sports Medicine Institute said that you should “At least 48 hours of rest for the injured area. Apply ice packs to the affected area for period of between 10 and 30 minutes. Be sure to place a towel over the injured area before applying the ice pack
“Hands up, lift leg, kick.” I would repeat to myself. BAM. I fell on my head and my arm was under it. “Ow.” I whispered. I got my arm out from under my head and the second I looked at my radius and ulna, I felt excruciating pain shoot up my arm. “Call 911” my coaches yelled at each other as if they were both thinking the exact same thing. I was concerned but they were terrified.
The aim of this review paper is to access the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury of the knee (tibiofemoral) joint, which is a common sport and exercise injury related to the musculoskeletal system. Investigation of the anatomy and physiology of the knee joint, and the diagnosis, etiology, pathophysiology, treatment, rehabilitation and prevention of ACL injuries will provide a descriptive epidemiology. This will aid readers in making informed management and treatment decisions, and guide them to safely perform movements to prevent injury. This review paper will incorporate holistic views on relevant scientific research, including primary resources such as journal articles and lecture notes, which will be cross-referenced
Tennis elbow is a painful condition that strikes more people than tennis players. Anyone who regularly performs repetitive bending activities with their elbow (such as canoeing) experiences this problem. And they 're often told about the following cures and treatments. Unfortunately, these treatments aren 't always effective. Some don 't work at all.
This injury is called tennis elbow due to the problem being significant for tennis players. Tennis Elbow is caused by the overuse of the arm, forearm and hand muscles. The abrupt or subtle injury off the muscle or tendon area around the outside of the elbow, is a major contributor to the pain that people who have tennis elbow receives. The area where the muscles and tendons of the forearm attaches to the outside of the bony area (lateral epicondyle) is where it is affected. Tennis players mostly receives this injury on their dominant arm but it can occur or either arm. This injury affects 1 to 3 percent of the population overall and as many as 50% of tennis players during their careers. Less than 5% of all tennis
A shoulder dislocation happens when the upper arm bone (humerus) moves out of the shoulder joint. The shoulder joint is the part of the shoulder where the humerus, shoulder blade, and collar bone meet.
When players are out with an injury, game announcers will often say they are, “out with an ankle” or “out with a knee.” I’m pretty sure most of the players are out with two ankles and two knees; it’s just that one of them is injured and that is why they are not playing. I guess we all know they are referring to an injury, but the announcer’s job is to effectively communicate as much pertinent information as possible about the game.
Repetitive Strain Injury also affects athlete emotionally. It is normal for an athlete to have an emotional reaction when he/she is experiencing injury. One of the emotional reactions is depression. Depression in some student-athletes may also be related to performance failure. When Silliman varsity players sustain considerable injuries, such as knee injuries associated with time loss from sport, they undergo both physically as well as emotionally with a decrease in their quality of life. Feelings of depression are signs that the athlete may need more emotional support from a sport or clinical psychologist. These athletes may be less motivated to the goals of rehabilitation or even wonder what the purpose of treatment is.
A giant cell tumor (GCT) of the distal radius is a locally aggressive lesion. In this study we performed a wrist arthrodesis reconstruction with an ipsilateral double barrel segmental ulnar bone graft combined with a modified Sauve-Kapandji procedure for a GCT of the distal radius. From January 2007 to September 2013, we followed 8 patients for a mean duration of 36 months. One patient developed a recurrence and was treated by amputation, the other 7 patients achieved a union in about 8 months. There was no pain, wrist instability, deformation, or dislocation; the average range of motion of the forearm achieved 75° of supination and 70° of pronation. Concurrently, the patients recovered grip strength and could perform high-energy activities.
As with all sports, it is imperative that all members of the athletic health care team are familiar with the injuries and illnesses that wrestlers experience. These injuries and illnesses range from skin infections and lacerations, to musculoskeletal strains and sprains. While they may experience a variety of injuries and illnesses, due to the nature of this sport, it is not illogical to hypothesize that knee injuries are common afflictions among wrestlers. Current epidemiological research addresses this exact hypothesis. More specifically, research studies and practicing healthcare professionals have begun looking at the occurrence of knee injuries among wrestlers, as well as causative factors.

The musculoskeletal system is composed of muscles, bones, joints.Joint composed of muscles, tendons, bursae, etc., so it will produce and facilitate movement of mechanical forces acting around the fulcrum (the joint) to perform the desired motion.
Working with a wide variety of injuries gives you the knowledge to be confident in your abilities as an ATC. What many people do not know is that athletic trainers use preventative care workouts just as much as rehabilitation workouts. We prevent athletes from developing an injury with many of the same rehabilitation workouts that we have. The author of suburbanortho.com writes, “Although rehabilitation is most commonly cited as the main focus of sports medicine, preventative care is a huge aspect of the field, as well. The idea is to improve and maintain one’s health, in order to help avoid future injuries.” (“Benefits of Sports Medicine”). Even if athletes aren’t hurt we have them do certain exercises to prevent a reoccurring
NEUROMUSCULAR , PROPRIOCEPTIVE AND BALANCE TRAINING VS BRACING AND TAPING FOR PREVENTING RECURRENT ANKLE SPRAIN IN ATHLETES
Dislocation is the term given to the displacement of bones from their normal position, considerable force is needed to do this. The elbow joint is a complex synovial hinge – where the ulnar, radius and humerus articulate. There are three types of dislocation, the range in severity. A simple dislocation is one in which no major bone injury has occurred. Fractures to the radial head and neck, olecranon and distal humeral condyles/epicondyles have been approximated to occur between 5% and 15% of all elbow dislocations (Middleton, 2012). Fractures like these change the type of dislocation from simple to complex. Therefore a complex dislocation may involve both ligament and bone injuries. A severe dislocation can be catastrophic; there is a high chance that the many nerves and blood vessels that travel in and around the elbow joint may be injured, therefore there is a risk of losing the arm(O’Driscoll, 2009).
