Sports injuries. About keyhole surgery (Laparoscopic), ultrasound scanning, blockade and treatment of injuries

Sport Unfolding may, in addition to strengthening the body, sometimes also be a burden. Improper training or overtraining increases the risk of damage to muscles, joints and bones. The most common injuries are sprains, fiber rupture, ligament injuries, joint luxation and fractures. Sports Doctors often use ultrasound scanning to both diagnosis and treatment of sports injuries, and operations in the joints and bones performed ambulatory using the latest techniques, such as shoulder operations, elbow, meniscus, ligament operations, ankle injuries, hand surgery, etc.

Keyhole surgery (Arthroscopy)

For example, disorders of the knee joint, it is often necessary to perform an arthroscopy (arthroscopy), where, by a minor operation introduces a narrow telescope of a few millimeters in diameter, into one of the body part, usually the knee joint. Using the arthroscope can inspect the joint's interior and see how ligaments, menisci, joint capsules and cartilage looks. If health damage that can be treated by arthroscopy can often operate any. damage of the same. For example, removal of damaged meniscus suturing of meniscus, removal of the irritated mucosa or mucosal fold, the removal of mice or equivalent. Arthroscopy is the most reliable method to examine the knee joint diseases and injuries. Arthroscopy is significantly safer than either radiography, contrast radiography, CT scanning and magnetic camera investigations. - Click to read more in FAQs >>

Meniscus (anatomy)

The meniscus, which is a cartilage plate lying in two crescents each side between the femur and tibia, it may also be damaged. One can have sustained a tear in the meniscus or torn a part of it loose from its attachment. In such type of injury will be in the process often have trouble locking tendency the knee, ie. the knee gets stuck in a particular position. This is very painful and some may 'break' the knee in place to get it moving again. It can also provide a snap in the knee during movement, as if there truly is 'a point' you need to be able to perform the movement. When pronounced damage to the meniscus can be in a keyhole surgery 'patch' meniscus. Doctor and physiotherapist can make a series of tests of the knee, which can give an idea of which structures may be damaged, but a scan or laparoscopy may be necessary to turn this quite clearly. Treatment includes in doubt, relief and rehabilitation of the knee. If the symptoms slowly disappear if there is Locking or if it is obvious that menisklæsionen is a great example. assessed by ultrasound scanning, you have to consider surgery. It will occasionally be possible to put a partially torn meniscus firmly in keyhole surgery. By operation tries to sew the torn meniscal piece solid, which will require a significantly longer rehabilitation period, but probably in the long term reduce the risk of degenerative arthritis of the knee. Usually, removed the torn-off portion of the meniscus. In rare cases, removed the entire meniscus. - Click and read more in FAQs >>

Blockade Injection

One can, among other things, blockade placed in the shoulder, knee, hip, elbow, ankle and around tendons. Construction of blockade with corticosteroid and local anesthetic is done to allay irritation in and around the tissue. In those cases where it is important for the treatment, the blockade constructed as a precision block guided by ultrasound. The blockade is composed of 1-2 ml. Depromedrol, or 1 ml. corticosteroid and local anesthetic. Often blockade an aid in diagnosis and planning the way forward. The effect of local anesthesia fades after approx. 6 hours. Adrenal cortical effect occurs often first after 1-2 days and can last up to 6 weeks. The hormone acts to allay irritation (overload inflammation) and soften scar tissue. Since the hormone also affects tendons, only given 4 injections in total in one year was not to weaken tendons and tissues inappropriate. The effect of blockade can be difficult to predict. If it helps, but the genes come back, usually after 3-4 weeks you can put further blockades. In some cases one block enough. In other cases, it helps not at all or help only briefly. It should be stressed that pickets can rarely stand alone, but must be accompanied by adjustments in the training. - Click to read more in FAQs >>


This damage often turn slowly. This means that the pain comes intermittently in small increments at first and later for longer intervals. They can be provoked by specific activities such as running, climbing stairs or similar. To set the correct diagnosis is important that you can describe the pain and give a picture of how the pain provoked. There may be image of the knee, either by X-ray or scan that can confirm or refute a diagnosis. Typical injuries of this nature is osteoarthritis of the knee, then wear on the articular cartilage and in particularly bad also on bone tissue. The four head knæstrækker, as the name says, the muscle that extends the knee and the muscle is divided into four muscle heads. The asymmetry in the operation of these muscles for example 4 where the muscles on the side away from the femur and the knee is stronger than those on the inside, one can incur a wear of the patella back. The diagnosis is called condromallacia and is seen frequently in young girls. Pain located on the front of the knee and appears both at rest and during activity. Here it is important to first get retrained thigh muscle symmetrically by making the muscle on the inside stronger. Has arisen wear on the back of the kneecap does not often something about it, but there is a very crooked pull the kneecap, one can make an operation that causes the muscle pull direction on the kneecap becomes less stressful for him. Have you had a sore knee for a longer period, it may be a good idea to consult their own doctor who will assess the extent and possible. refer to a physiotherapist. - Click to read more in FAQs >>

Shock wave therapy (ESWT)

Shock Wave Therapy, Extra Corp. Oreal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) has been used for years, and several studies have shown promising results. The treatment form is relatively new, but more and more clinics offer shock wave therapy as an adjunct to conventional physiotherapy. Shock wave therapy is used for eg tennis elbow, golf elbow and mouse arm, calcification in the shoulder and frozen shoulder, Heel spur plantar fascitis, Achilles tendon tendinosis and other chronic tissue & tendon disorders. Frequent movement disorders that have been shown to be susceptible to shock wave Therapy (ESWT). Most of these can be treated by conventional physiotherapy, but in many cases, treatment is not enough power, why states become chronic. And this method can ESWT in a number of situations replace surgery. A typical course consists of 3 to 5 treatments, each of 5-10 minutes duration. - Click to read more in FAQs >>


Warm up thoroughly: Always start by making a lighter version of the type of training or motivation-else you need doing. - Increase efforts at a reasonable pace: increase not your exercise intensity or training time by more than 10-15 per cent. of what you normally do. - Use the proper technique: the wrong training techniques increase the size of its risk of sprains and broken limbs. - Be aware of fatigue: so if you start to feel tired or sore during practice or matches, it's a good idea to stop or take a rest. - Stretch out: stretching exercises makes the body more flexible and adaptable and at the end of the workout and stretch gently, not in spurts. - When it hurts: Whether an injury is chronic or acute, the You never try to 'run' or 'work' you out of pain. When it hurts, is the body's signal to you to hold back or stop completely.
