Sports Injury Surgery

Sports injury surgery is the last and final treatment option for Common Sports Injuries Conditions There are many injuries that ultimately require surgery for a full recovery. ACL reconstructions, shoulder labral tears, and meniscus tears are just a few sports injuries that may require surgical intervention.

Exercising is good for you, but sometimes you can injure yourself when you play sports or exercise. Accidents, poor training practices or improper gear can cause them. Some people get hurt because they are not in shape. Not warming up or stretching enough can also lead to injuries.

The most common sports injuries are :

  1. Sprains and strains
  2. Knee injuries
  3. Swollen muscles
  4. Achilles tendon injuries
  5. Pain along the shin bone
  6. Fractures
  7. Dislocations

If you get hurt, stop playing. Continuing to play or exercise can cause more harm. Treatment often begins with the RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation) method to relieve pain, reduce swelling and speed healing. Other possible treatments include pain relievers, keeping the injured area from moving, rehabilitation and sometimes surgery.

All surgery, no mater how expertly or carefully it is performed, carries risks and the importance of a full evaluation and consultation to discuss your condition in relation to these risks with a leading Orthopaedic Surgeon who specialises in Sports injury surgery cannot be over emphasised.
