Sports Injury Clinic

HEW_0118

  at Sportlink.

Any one that leads an active lifestyle by sports participation, going to the gym or even walking can incur some kind of injury.

An injury can be in the form of a traumatic incident, such as during a game or competition or one that gradually gets worse with further activity.

The discipline of massage can be used to warm up tissue vigorously before a competition to increase blood flow through to the muscles, particularly if they are tight or inflexible making them more efficient and prepared and less likely to get injured.

It can also be used post exercise for sedative effects and to aid the removal of toxins that would of been produced during activity. With a variety of techniques that can be used, the massage can be specifically tailored to an individual's needs.

When an injury first occurs, it is always best to stop what you are doing straight away and try to apply an ice pack to the injured area.

Dependent on the severity of injury, try to ice for 10 minutes at a time over the next two to three days at regular intervals combined with rest (usually from the aggravating activity). If this does the trick, then great.....if not then it is always best to get it checked out for proper rehabilitation advice.

With an on going overuse injury, it is important that the problem can be identified as soon as possible, otherwise it is likely to worsen causing greater pain and disability. Again, a professional with great experience in dealing with a variety of injuries would hopefully have the ability to identify the cause of irritation and resolve the problem.

With regards to an over use injury in running, the term 'shin splits' is commonly used to describe pain in the lower leg that typically worsens without rest and if left untreated can be a serious problem in which surgery may be required. This term can be better described as a compartment syndrome; there are three compartments in the lower leg, anterior, superficial posterior and deep posterior, all containing muscles surrounded by a muscle sheath.

The pain occurs when this sheath becomes inflamed because of increased pressure generated by the working muscles, the muscles expand during exercise and the sheath must be flexible enough to allow this. Hence the importance for gradually increasing training to allow these adaptations to occur.
