Common sports injuries include:
• Partial and complete dislocation of the shoulder: The muscles may spasm due to the dislocation, causing acute pain, and swelling, weakness, numbness and bruising may also be evident.
• Elbow injuries: Overhand throwing causes extreme stress on the elbow and can lead to severe overuse injury. If the elbow is not allowed to heal and used repeatedly, even when the patient is in pain, serious issues can develop over the long term and the risk of dislocation is increased.
• Mallet finger: When a tendon is damaged, a deformity may become apparent in the finger and the patient may not be able to straighten or extend the digit.
• Knee injuries: Collateral Ligament injuries are common amongst football and soccer players. As the knee is the largest and the most complex joint of the body, any sprain or more serious damage can cause long periods of being unable to play.
Common sports players treated at the Armada Healthcare include:
• Basketball players
• Football players
• Tennis players
• CrossFit enthusiasts
In addition to the above-mentioned mainstream sports, there is a high percentage of the population that participates in extreme sport activities. These include sky diving, kite surfing, and mixed martial arts. Due to the nature and skill of these sports, medical professionals must be well trained to deal with the complexity of injuries that these athletes may incur.
