______________________________________________

Sport and exercise can sometimes cause injuries. Sports injuries can happen as a result of:

•not warming up properly before exercising more vigorously
•pushing too hard for your current level of fitness
•using inadequate equipment

To reduce the risk of being injured while exercising, ask a qualified health professional or sports coach for training and safety advice.

Before starting a new exercise programme or taking up a new sport, it is also a good idea to visit your GP for a check-up and fitness assessment.

Sport injuries can be acute or chronic.

•Acute sports injuries occur as a result of a sudden impact or awkward movement
•Chronic sports injuries develop over time, often due to continual use of the same joints or muscle groups

Chronic sports injuries can occur due to bad technique or occasionally structural abnormalities, such as an inherited bone or muscle problem.

Chronic sports injuries should be investigated by a medical professional to determine the cause and to prevent the injury getting worse.

Some common sports injuries include:

•sprains
•strains
•cuts and bruises
•bone fractures and breaks
•tendonitis (inflammation of a tendon)
•blisters
•head injuries

With most sports injuries it helps to mobilise (move) the injured part as soon as possible to help speed up the healing process. Gentle exercises should improve the area’s range of motion. As movement becomes easier and pain decreases, stretching and strengthening exercises can be introduced.

During the rehabilitation process, do not attempt to do too much too quickly. Start by doing frequent repetitions of a few simple exercises before gradually increasing the amount you do. Avoid painful activities and do not return to your sport until you have no pain and full strength and flexibility have returned to the injured area.

A health care professional, such as a physiotherapist or sports injury specialist, can help you devise a suitable rehabilitation programme and advise you about which exercises you should do and the number of repetitions.

Other treatments

A number of other treatments may help if you have a sports injury.

•Physiotherapy: a range of treatments, including manipulation, which improve the range of motion and return the functioning of injured areas to normal.
•Massage: using the hands to apply pressure to the affected area and encourage blood to flow to the site of the injury to help the healing process.
•Ultrasound: high-frequency soundwaves penetrate deep into the muscle to stimulate blood flow and speed up recovery.
•Heat treatment (thermotherapy): use of hot compresses, heat pads and heat lamps to reduce pain and promote blood flow to the injured area. Heat treatment should not be used during the first 48 hours after injury.
•Cold treatment (cryotherapy): use of ice packs to numb the affected area and reduce inflammation (swelling). Cold treatment is usually only used during the first 48 hours following an injury.
