SPORTS MEDICINE

Sports injuries occur when playing indoor or outdoor sports or while exercising. They can result from accidents, inadequate training, improper use of protective devices, or insufficient stretching or warm-up exercises. The most common sports injuries are sprains and strains, fractures and dislocations.

The most common treatment recommended for an injury is rest, ice, compression, and elevation (RICE).

  • REST: Avoid activities that may cause injury.
  • ICE: Ice packs can be applied to the injured area which will help to diminish swelling and pain. Ice should be applied over a towel to the affected area for 15-20 minutes, four times a day for several days. Never place ice directly over the skin.
  • COMPRESSION: Compression of the injured area helps to reduce swelling. Elastic wraps, air casts, and splints can accomplish this.
  • ELEVATION: Elevate the injured part above heart level to reduce swelling and pain.
