What are the most common dance and sport injuries?

Dance and sport requires a lot of strength, flexibility.It also comes with a high risk of injuries.

Most common dance and sport injuries causes from using the joints and muscles too much.

The majority of these overuse injuries involve an ankle, leg, foot or lower back. They divided to two groups as injuries and accidents. When the injuries is mentioned, the changes in the bones, joints and soft tissues can be understood as a result of the abnormal situation caused by exceeding the tolerance limits in the tissue.Accidents are defined as an event that threatens health with sudden, external force.

Sprains: Overstretching or tearing the ligaments results in a sprain. Ligaments are pieces of tissue that connect two bones to one another in a joint.

Strains: Overstretching or tearing muscles or tendons results in a sprain. Tendons are thick, fibrous cords of tissue that connect bone to muscle. Strains are commonly mistaken for sprains. 

Knee and Ankle Injuries: Collisions, quick pivots, or squatting motions during activity can lead to cartilage damage, ligament tears, and tendon ruptures. We specialize to treat ; runner’s knee, meniscus tears.

Achilles tendon rupture: The Achilles tendon is a thin, powerful tendon at the back of your ankle. During sports or dance, this tendon can break or rupture. When it does, you may experience sudden, severe pain and difficulty walking.

Fractures: Bone fractures are also known as broken bones.

Swollen muscles: Swelling is a natural reaction to an injury. Swollen muscles may also be painful and weak.

Dislocations: Sports injuries may dislocate a bone in your body. When that happens, a bone is forced out of its socket. This can be painful and lead to swelling and weakness.

Elbow and Shoulder Injuries (Rotator cuff injury) : Four pieces of muscle work together to form the rotator cuff. The rotator cuff keeps your shoulder moving in all directions. A tear in any of these muscles can weaken the rotator cuff.

Whether it’s baseball, volleyball, or tennis, throwing injuries and elbow overuse injuries are prevalent. We have many surgical and nonsurgical treatment options for many common shoulder and elbow injuries ranging from golfer’s elbow to rotator cuff tears.

 

Prevantion from dance and sport injuries

The best way to prevent a sports injury is to warm up properly and stretch. Cold muscles are prone to overstretching and tears. Warm muscles are more flexible. They can absorb quick movements, bends, and jerks, making injury less likely.

 

What are the best treatment options?
 

Pre-treatment in sports injuries consists of 5 important methods. These are taking the injured area under protection, resting, cold application, compression (applying pressure) and keeping the injured area up. The second stage is the definitive treatment period. Injury can be treated with surgical or medical treatments as needed. The third stage includes the rehabilitation protocols to be applied in order for the athlete to participate in training again and to maximize his performance.

 

Surgical Treatment Methods:

Surgical treatment of sports injuries includes some differences compared to routine operations. Rehabilitation protocols should be determined before the surgery in order to ensure that especially professionals return to training again. In this process, it is vital for the orthopedist and physiotherapist to act together and manage the treatment for a successful result.


Bone Fracture Surgery: From Boxer’s fractures to hip fractures, we treat a wide range of common sports injury fractures. The specific surgery will depend on the placement and severity of the fracture. More severe fractures will requires a series of surgical screws, plates, and other stabilizers.


Sports Medicine Knee Surgery: Nonsurgical sports medicine treatment options suffice for many less active or older individuals following ligament injuries, however, competitive athletes will often require surgery to compete at the highest level. We specialize treatment options for many knee sports injuries, including meniscus repairs and ACL reconstruction.


Sports Medicine Shoulder and Elbow Surgery: Diminished velocity is common with many arm sports injuries. To treat the underlying bone or tissue damage we have a range of sports medicine treatments including rotator cuff surgery, UCL surgery, nerve compression surgery, and others.

Sports Medicine Hand and Wrist Surgery: The hands and wrists are routinely damaged during competition and training and many sports injuries will require profession sports medicine treatment. Whether you’re experiencing flexor tendon injuries or a diminished grip strength due to nerve compression we have a host of cutting edge treatment options to consider.

Arthroscopic Surgery (Non-Invasive Surgery for Sports Injury): Today there are many outpatient surgery options and typically patients are free to return home just hours after the procedure. Unlike more invasive procedures, arthroscopic surgery doesn’t involve large open incisions and results in less swelling and faster recoveries. These arthroscopic surgeries are geared toward tendons, ligaments, and joint preservation not joint replacement.

During a typical procedure, the surgeon guides a small camera (arthroscope) through the elbow via a small incision and uses this visual data and surgical instruments to diagnose and treat the underlying cause of your pain.
