Exercise and sports are beneficial to health. Still, people suffer injury to various body parts due to exertional activity. We have been able to treat various sports injury surgery in mumbai effectively. Some parts that are most prone to sports injury are discussed in detail below.
Certain sports, such as sprinting, football, basketball, lacrosse, or skiing, have an increased risk of knee joint injury because of drastic moves and excessive use of the knee joints. Sudden twists and turns exert imbalanced pressure on the knee joint causing ligament or muscle injury. Sports knee injuries may require physical therapy or surgical intervention that can be performed using open surgical or minimally invasive techniques. Dr. Savadekar will recommend physical therapy to improve muscles health, elasticity, and joint movement.
Next to the knee joint, foot and ankle are most exposed to injury. Since the ankle is the lowest joint that relays the entire body's pressure while executing movements, it is prone to injuries. Typically, football, hockey, skating players, and athletes succumb to foot ankle injuries. However, most injuries, including muscle sprains, strains, ankle fractures, and Achilles tendinitis, can be treated with orthotics, braces, physical therapy, injections, or surgery.
Femur bone fracture, labral tear, and hip dislocation are common sports-related injuries that affect the hip. The hip joint bears spine as well pelvic weight, and its joint performs a range of motions. Hence, it is susceptible to various joint, muscle, ligament, and bone injuries. As a result, sports athletes are very susceptible to hip injuries that require immediate medical attention. Dr. Savadekar, a renowned sports doctor in Mumbai, provides rehabilitation programs and physical therapy as the most prominent medical intervention. He also provides assistance in exercises to improve muscle strength and restore hip functionality.
