How can you treat sports injuries?

Sports injury treatments vary depending on the type of injury, severity, and location. Some sports injuries may need physiotherapy or surgical intervention, others may resolve simply that require only over-the-counter pain relievers and rest. Understanding the right treatment option is a strong step towards recovery.

Elbow injury, Groin injury, Ankle and Feet injury, Head injury, Hip injury, Shoulder injury, knee injury, leg injury.

Ankle sprain generally occurs in athletes when the foot turns inward. This turning may cause tears or stretches of the ligaments on the ankle’s outside. A physiotherapist may teach some exercise to prevent the loss of flexibility and strength.

Knee injury: The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) holds the leg bone to the knee. Sudden cuts, hits can tear or strain the ACL.  If you hear a POP sound it means there is a complete tear in ACL. An entirely torn ACL requires a surgical intervention to remain physically active.
The posterior cruciate ligament, (PCL) is the strongest ligament located inside the knee. The injury in PCL may occur due to a hard blow to the shin bone. Arthroscopic procedure, open surgery is done for PCL tear.
