    What can be treated with Sports Medicine?

    Sports Medicine can treat the following –

    • Acute Injuries

    An injury that develops right away and occurs during a specific incidence. An injury to the knee, shoulder, or ankle, for instance, or a bone fracture.

    • Overuse Injury

    An overuse injury arises when the affected area is repeatedly used while exercising, as opposed to when the injury happens suddenly. Stress fractures, rotator cuff problems, and tendinitis are a few examples.

    Sports Medicine can also be used to address conditions other than musculoskeletal ones.

    • Diseases that might be either acute or chronic, like diabetes, asthma, or arthritis
    • Injury avoidance
    • Performing poorly
    • Nutrition and supplements
    • Workouts to improve fitness
    • Choosing the appropriate time for the athlete to “return to play.”

    Sports Medicine typically entails more than just one appointment with a doctor to discuss your condition. Physical therapists, nutritionists, surgeons, and other health professionals work together to deliver this treatment.

    What does a Sports Medicine Practitioner do?

    A Sports Medicine doctor can –

    • Identify underlying issues affecting your physical performance and diagnose, treat, and manage injuries to your musculoskeletal system.
    • Inform athletes and non-athletes about strategies to stay healthy, prevent injuries, exercise, condition, and gain strength without risking any potential harm.
    • Administer medical attention at athletic activities.
    • Specify the conditions under which athletes should return to play following an injury.

    A Sports Medicine doctor might additionally treat:

    • Sprains
    • Strained muscles
    • Breaks or fractures
    • Tendinitis
    • Osteoarthritis
    • Concussions
    • Joint abrasions (shoulder or knee)
    • Overuse illnesses (rotator cuff or stress fracture)

    What is Sports Medicine for?

    While treating elite athletes, Sports Medicine professionals also provide these medical services to adults, teenagers, and children who sustain injuries while engaging in personal fitness. No one is excluded from receiving this medical care—not even athletes. Sports Medicine can also benefit those with physically demanding employment, such as construction workers.

    Anyone who needs medical assistance while healing from an injury can go to a Sports Medicine doctor. People use sports medical treatments to enhance their athletic ability or lower their risk of further injuries. Being injured and forced to sit out might be difficult. Make an appointment with a doctor at Apollo Hospitals, Karnataka, to resume your normal sporting activities and fitness program as soon as possible.

    When should you see a Sports Medicine Practitioner?

    If you see the following conditions, you must see a Sports Medicine practitioner –

    • Fracture
    • Tendonitis
    • Knee pain
    • Shoulder harm
    • Muscle aches
    • Sprained ankle concussion
    • Unable to bear weight due to injuries
    • Numbness
    • Swelling
    • Extreme pain
    • Bruising
    • Restricted range of motion or capability

    Sports-related injuries can occasionally happen suddenly due to an incident during play. Other times, ongoing injuries brought on by training necessitate using Sports Medicine services. The damage may heal on its own if the symptoms are mild. But, if you continue to sustain injuries, consulting the top Sports Medicine professionals at Apollo Hospitals, Karnataka, is highly recommended.

    What are the risks involved in Sports Injury?

    Sports injuries are more prone to occur when playing contact sports and engaging in repetitive motions. The likelihood of a sports injury is further increased by a number of additional factors, such as –

    • Fatigue
    • Limited variety of activities
    • Stiffness or weakened muscles
    • Greater age
    • Having an unbalanced muscle structure results in one muscle group overcompensating for another.
    • Either not wearing protective gear or wearing the incorrect gear.

    What are the Treatments involved in Sports Medicine?

    Surgery is not necessary to treat these wounds. Surgery is an option for severe injuries or diseases that do not respond to nonsurgical treatments, although it is prioritised whenever possible.

    Sports Medicine can treat injuries in addition to other conditions. For instance, some sportsmen consult with Sports Medicine specialists to increase strength and performance. Other treatments might include advice on eating more or less, exercising more or less, and other physical factors that could affect an athlete’s performance.

    Below are the treatments used in general –

    • Pausing to rest and train
    • Using a cast or sling to immobilise the injury
    • Drugs that reduce pain (over-the-counter or prescription medications)
    • Putting ice on the injured area
    • Physical exercise
    • Surgery to repair injured tissue or realign the bones
