Sports Injuries can be very painful but can be cured with Specialist treatments.

We are the specialist clinic for Knee Pain, Knee Injury, and Chronic Knee Joint Pain. Early diagnosis and treatment can prevent the complication of the recovery of Knee Problem.These are some of the sports injuries for Knee :

  • LIGAMENT INJURIES – Ligament injuries in the knee; such as an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) are dreaded by professional and amateur athletes alike. They can be painful and debilitating. They can even permanently change your lifestyle.
  • CONDROMALACIA PATELLA – Chondromalacia patella is a common cause of kneecap pain or anterior knee pain. Often called “Runner’s Knee,” this condition often affects young, otherwise healthy athletes.
  • DISLOCATING KNEECAPS – Kneecap dislocation occurs when the triangle-shaped bone covering the knee (patella) moves or slides out of place. The problem usually occurs toward the outside of the leg.
  • SHIN SPLINT – Shin splints are a member of a group of injuries called “overuse injuries.” Shin splints occur most commonly in runners or aggressive walkers
  • ROTATOR CUFF TEAR – The rotator cuff is made up of four muscles that help move and stabilize the shoulder joint. Damage to any one of the four muscles or their ligaments that attach the muscle to bone can occur because of acute injury, chronic overuse, or gradual aging.
  • Low Back Pain – Low back pain is one of the main reasons Singaporean visit their doctor.
  • Neck Pain – Pain located in the neck usually at the back or sides.
  • Whiplash Injury – Whiplash injury occurs when there is a sudden jolt to the head and neck for example in a car accident, which causes either a forward, backward, or sideways movement of the head that is beyond the normal range of motion.

How Doctors know your medical condition?

Physical Examination

Radiological imaging tests help your doctor see the anatomy of your spine. There are several kinds of imaging tests that are commonly used.

X-rays

X-rays show problems with bones, such as infection, bone tumors, or fractures. X-rays of the spine also can give your doctor information about how much degeneration has occurred in the spine, such as the amount of space in the neural foramina and between the discs. X-rays are usually the first test ordered before any of the more specialized tests.

MRI Scans 

The magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan uses magnetic waves to create pictures of the lumbar spine in slices. The MRI scan shows the lumbar spine bones as well as the soft tissue structures such as the discs, joints, and nerves. MRI scans are painless and don’t require needles or dye. The MRI scan has become the most common test to look at the lumbar spine after X-rays have been taken.

What are the treatments?

Wrist Fractures

Nonsurgical Treatment

There are many treatment choices. The choice depends on many factors, such as the nature of the fracture, age and activity level, and surgeon’s personal preferences. The following is a general discussion of the possible options.

Casting: If the broken bone is in a good position, a plaster cast may be applied until the bone heals.

If the position (alignment) of your bone is not good and likely to limit the future use of the arm, it may be necessary to correct the deformity. The bone would be re-aligned (reduced).

If the bone is straightened (reduced) without having to open the skin (incision), this is called a closed reduction.

After the bone is properly aligned, a splint or cast may be placed on your arm. A splint is usually used for the first few days, to allow for a small amount of normal swelling. A cast is usually added a few days to a week or so later, after the swelling goes down. The cast is changed two or three weeks later as the swelling goes down more, causing the cast to loosen.

X-rays may be taken, depending on the nature of the fracture. X-rays may be taken at weekly intervals for three weeks and then at six weeks if the fracture was reduced or thought to be unstable. X-rays may be taken less often if the fracture was not reduced and thought to be stable.

The cast is removed about six weeks after the fracture happened. At that point, physical therapy is often started to help improve the motion and function of the injured wrist.

Surgical Treatment

Sometimes, the position of the bone is so much out of place that it cannot be corrected or kept corrected in a cast. This has the potential of interfering with the future functioning of your arm. In this case, surgery may be required.

There are many ways of performing surgery. Even if the fracture is treated in the operating room, it may be possible to re-align (reduce) the fracture without making an incision (closed reduction). In other cases, it will be necessary to make an incision (open reduction) to directly access the broken bones to improve alignment.

Depending on the fracture, there are a number of options for holding the bone in the correct position, including a cast, metal pins (usually stainless steel or titanium), a plate and screws, an external fixator (a device for which most of the hardware remains outside of the body), or any combination of these techniques.

Ankle Sprains

Medical Treatment

Treatment by a doctor will be very similar to that described for home care, especially using ice to lessen the inflammation.

  • The doctor may elect to apply a brace or cast to reduce motion of the ankle. Crutches are frequently provided so you do not have to bear weight on the injured ankle.
  • The most common medications used for ankle sprains are anti-inflammatory pain medications that both reduce pain and help control inflammation. If you cannot tolerate these drugs, acetaminophen is a common alternative for pain relief.

Follow-up

Follow-up for ankle sprains is needed only if the ankle is not healing well. This could indicate there is a previously undetected fracture or torn ligaments. Go to a doctor for follow-up care if either of the following is true.

  • Your ankle continues to hurt after 2 weeks
  • Any swelling persists or worsens

Shoulder Dislocations

Dislocated shoulders need to be treated right away. Your doctor will need to move the arm bone back into the shoulder socket. Since the joint will get more swollen and more painful by the minute, the sooner the better. Once the arm bone is back in the socket, some of the pain will go away.

Medical Treatment

Treatment of shoulder instability depends on several factors, and almost always begins with physical therapy and rehab. If patients complain of a feeling that their shoulder is loose or about to dislocate, physical therapy with specific strengthening exercises will often help maintain the shoulder in proper position. Shoulder strengthening is most likely to help the second group of patients athletes with multi-directional shoulder instability. Other treatments sometimes used to treat shoulder instability include injections and anti-inflammatory medications.

Most of the time, these treatments will do the trick. But in rare cases, you may need surgery.

Surgery for severe separated shoulders is sometimes needed to repair the torn ligament. Afterwards, you will probably need to keep your arm in a sling for about six weeks.

For a severely dislocated shoulder, surgery is sometimes needed to correctly position the bones. If you keep dislocating your shoulder, surgery to tighten the ligaments surrounding the joint may help.

Muscle Strain

Medical Treatment

Medical treatment is similar to the treatment at home. The doctor, however, also can determine the extent of muscle and tendon injury and if crutches or a brace is needed for healing. The doctor can also determine if you need to restrict your activity or take days off work and if rehabilitation exercises or physical therapy are required to help you recover.
