Sprains and Strains
Sprains and strains are injuries affecting the muscles and ligaments. A sprain is an injury or tear of one or more ligaments that commonly occurs at the wrist, knee, ankle or thumb.
Tendons are powerful fibrous cords which connect muscle to bone. When you overstretch a tendon, it can rupture (tear) completely or partially.
Tendons are tough cord-like tissues made up of collagen protein that connect your muscles to your bones.
A tear in the muscle fibers caused by either a fall or direct blow to the muscle, overstretching and overuse injury can be called a muscle strain.
Tendon Repair Surgery
Tendon repair surgery is performed to repair a torn or ruptured tendon and restore normal function and movement to the joint. It is usually performed by arthroscopy.
Cartilage Preservation Techniques
Cartilage preservation techniques can be defined as surgical measures employed to restore deteriorating joint cartilage in order to prevent or delay joint replacement surgery such as knee and hip replacement.
Cartilage Repair and Transplantation
Cartilage cell transplantation is a technique of transplanting healthy cartilage cells to replace damaged cartilage cells.
Arthroscopic surgery, also known as arthroscopy, is a surgical procedure to visualize, diagnose, and treat problems inside a joint using a specialized instrument known as an arthroscope.
Surgery for Athletes
Surgery for athletes is different from non-athletes as it is performed with the intention of returning the athlete to their sports activity at the earliest.
Sports Medicine, also known as sports and exercise medicine (SEM), is a branch of medicine that deals with the treatment and prevention of sports and exercise-related injuries and improving fitness and performance.
The objective of the treatment is to reduce pain, improve joint movement, and prevent further damage to the joint.
Exercise for Arthritis
Exercising is, however, crucial for those with arthritis. It reduces joint pain, improves flexibility and strength, combats fatigue and gives you the energy to do the things you enjoy.
Sports injuries can occur during athletic activities, practices, or exercises.
