Sports Injuries Dubai – The Orthopedic Treatments To Help

Any kind of exercise should be supported to boost fitness and wellbeing but there is always the risk of injury. The most common forms of sports injuries in Dubai include:

Sprains

Injury to your ligaments, the connective tissue in your joints, is a sprain, the most common on the sports injuries. These occur from falls, twists and impact. You may not notice the injury right away, or you may hear a pop that alerts you immediately that the joint sustained some damage.

Strains

Strains happen when a muscle or tendon is stretched beyond its tolerances. This can even result in a very painful tear in the tissue.

Rotator Cuff or Shoulder Impingement

The rotator cuff is the series of muscles and tendons that hold the shoulder joint together and allow for its complex movement. Overuse or frequent extension can cause the head of the shoulder to impinge on tendons causing inflammation.

Shin Splints

Painful shin splints are caused when the muscle that raises the arch of the foot starts tearing away from its attachment on the shin bone.

Knee Ligament Tears

The knee has four ligaments that are prone to damage, the ACL, PCL, LCL and MCL. They attach your knee to the bones above and below. Injuries occur when the knee is twisted, distended (bent too far forward or backward) or suffers too many impacts from jumping.

Treatments For Sports Injuries

It is especially important to seek treatment as quickly as possible after a sports injury as this will help minimise long term damage.

Treatments can vary depending upon the type of injury and its severity. Possible solutions utilise techniques such as:

  • Platelet Rich Plasma / Stem Cells
    Used to rejuvenate damaged tissues by injecting plasma or stem cells into the injured area and so stimulating the body into repairing itself.
  • Minimally Invasive Spinal Surgery (MISS)
    For injuries to the spine to relieve the pressure on spinal nerves by stabilising discs, vertebral bones, and joints. The technique utilizes tools than minimize the damage to the skin and muscles thus reducing recovery time and pain.
  • Cortisone Injections
    Used for relieving pain and inflammation in a part of the body which has the injury.
