Sports injuries can happen not only to professional athletes, but also to amateurs if they do not stick to the rules. Injuries occur in almost every sport.
The most common sports injuries are:
- muscle strain (due to overloading);
- torn ligaments (also caused by overloading);
- Achilles tendon injury (caused by a careless jump or landing afterwards);
- tear of the meniscus of the knee joint (caused by simultaneous bending and rotating of the knee joint);
- limb fractures;
- spinal cord injuries;
- craniocerebral injuries.
Rehabilitation after an injury
Each case is different, so doctors use a selection of recovery methods that are tailored to each patient. This may include the use of pain medication, complete motor rest, the use of elastic bandages to secure the injured limb, and plastering. Therapeutic exercise and massage are also used for recovery. These procedures are carried out under the supervision of physical therapists who have considerable experience in the rehabilitation of sports injuries and use international protocols in their work.
If the injury is very serious and requires a long rehabilitation period, the doctor will draw up a rehabilitation scheme that must be strictly adhered to. It can vary, depending on the dynamics of recovery.
Consultation of a psychologist is also possible, if a person is very nervous after an injury, his or her sleep is disturbed or he or she becomes withdrawn.
