What is Sports Injury?

Sports injuries are a common occurrence, not just among athletes, but also among anyone who engages in physical activities. These injuries, which can range from tennis elbow to tendinitis, can affect both children and adults alike. Understanding these injuries is crucial for maintaining your well-being, whether you’re a fitness enthusiast or a professional athlete.

In contact sports like football or basketball, orthopaedic injuries are almost inevitable. The high risk of falls, accidents, and muscle wear and tear can lead to stress fractures, torn ligaments, ACL tears and chronic pain. These are common complaints that sports doctors encounter regularly.

However, a sports injury should not deter you from pursuing your favourite activity. Shalby Hospitals, one of the best hospitals for sports injuries, believes in helping you get back to the game as soon as possible. Don’t let an injury side-line you – let us help you get back on track.

Benefits of Arthroscopy for Sports Injury

Not all orthopaedic doctors can deal with sports injuries. Sports medicine is a specialisation of this field that deals exclusively with the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of injuries sustained while playing sports. Hence, we have established a dedicated sports clinic with cutting-edge technology and have sports injury specialists who excel in diagnosing and treating sports injuries.

Our sports injury doctors are skilled at arthroscopy, a minimally invasive surgical technique, that plays a crucial role in addressing sports-related injuries.

Benefits of Arthroscopy for Sports Injuries:

Minimal Invasion: Arthroscopy is a procedure that uses tiny incisions, which lessens tissue damage and shortens the recovery period in comparison to traditional open surgery.

Accuracy: This technique allows surgeons to see and treat specific joint problems directly, such as mending torn ligaments like the ACL or treating damaged cartilage.

Speedy Recovery: The faster healing process enables athletes to get back to their sports activities earlier, thus improving the overall rehabilitation process.

Preservation of Healthy Tissue: Arthroscopy focuses on the affected area while leaving the surrounding healthy bone and tissue intact.

Reduced Pain and Scarring: The use of smaller incisions results in less pain after the operation and minimal scarring.

In summary, arthroscopy enables effective treatment while minimizing disruption to an athlete’s performance and lifestyle.
