Sports Injury Therapy Options

Chiropractic in Malaysia’s blog posts and archives provides detailed information on sports injury therapy options without injections or surgery. Sports injuries are avoidable for most parts by warming up and cooling down before and after atheistic participation. Here are the most common types of sports injuries:

  • Sprains and strains
  • Fractures
  • Dislocation
  • Tendonitis
  • Bursitis

The most common joint impacted in sports injuries is the shoulder followed by the knee. Other joints include the:

  1. Neck & Back
  2. Ribs
  3. Pelvis
  4. Arms & elbows
  5. Hips & legs
  6. Feet & ankles
  7. Hand & wrists

Sports injuries are commonly caused by sprains (tendons tears) or strains (tendon or muscle tears). Sprains are slower healers than strains because ligaments have a poorer blood supply.  Timely and focused therapy of injured tissues can repair torn tendons, muscles, and ligaments.

Tendons attach muscles to bones. Excessive stress or aggressively stretching a muscle beyond its capacity can inflame a tendon. An inflamed tendon is referred to as tendonitis. Tendonitis issues near the bony attachment are slower healers than tendonitis that occur closer to muscles. Major joints of the body are surrounded by burse. A bursa is a sac that contains fluids. Bursae (plural form of bursa)help protect tendons near joints. The shoulder, hip, knee, and elbows have several bursae. Bursitis occurs with repetitive muscular and joint activities that inflame or irritates a bursa.

Fractures and dislocation are common in contact sports or during slip and fall. Dislocation and fractures may require surgery. After surgical intervention, rehabilitation and specialized strengthening therapy programs are needed to restore full function.
