Ankle sprain: For recurrent lateral ankle sprains, treatment should begin with a trial of conservative therapy for approximately 2-3 months.
Physical therapy during the recovery phase is aimed at the patient:
regaining full ROMand strength, and proprioceptive abilities
While a formal physical therapy program is particularly important for athletes and other patients who need a quicker recovery,
most low demand patients will do well with a basic home exercise program.[
Hamstring strain:A pulled hamstring or strain is an injury to one or more of the muscles at the back of the thigh. Most hamstring injuries respond well to simple, nonsurgical treatments.
Treatment of hamstring strains will vary depending on the type of injury you have, its severity, and your own needs and expectations.
The goal of any treatment is to help you return to all the activities you enjoy.
Following your doctor’s treatment plan will restore your abilities faster, and help you prevent further problems in the future.
Shin splints: Often, athletes will rest until symptoms go, only to find they return once normal training resumes. This is usually because the underlying causes have not been addressed and the muscles have not been restored to optimum condition.
reducing pain and inflammation,
identifying possible causes and restoring muscles back to optimal condition with a gradual return to full fitness.
The full rehabilitation process may take anywhere from 3 weeks to 12 weeks.
Knee injury: ACL tear:One of the most common knee injuries is an anterior cruciate ligament sprain or tear.
Athletes who participate in high demand sports like soccer, football, and basketball are more likely to injure their anterior cruciate ligaments.
If you have injured your anterior cruciate ligament, you may require surgery to regain full function of your knee. This will depend on several factors, such as the severity of your injury and your activity level.
Treatment for an ACL tear will vary depending upon the patient’s individual needs. For example, the young athlete involved in agility sports will most likely require surgery to safely return to sports. The less active, usually older, individual may be able to return to a quieter lifestyle without surgery
Knee injury: Patellofemoral syndrome : injury resulting from the repetitive movement of your kneecap against your thigh bone.
(PFPS) is a syndrome characterized by knee pain ranging from severe to mild discomfort seemingly originating from the contact of the posterior surface of the patella (back of the kneecap) with the femur (thigh bone).
The population most at risk from PFPS are runners, cyclists, basketball players and other sports participants. Onset can be gradual or the result of a single incident and is often caused by a change in training regime that includes dramatic increases in training time, distance or intensity, it can be compounded by worn or the wrong type of footwear. Symptoms include discomfort while sitting with bent knees or descending stairs and generalised knee pain.
involves resting and physical therapy that includes stretching and strengthening exercises for the legs.
Tennis elbow (epicondylitis):Tennis elbow, or lateral epicondylitis, is a painful condition of the elbow caused by overuse. Not surprisingly, playing tennis or other racquet sports can cause this condition. However, several other sports and activities can also put you at risk.
Tennis elbow is an inflammation of the tendons that join the forearm muscles on the outside of the elbow. The forearm muscles and tendons become damaged from overuse repeating the same motions again and again. This leads to pain and tenderness on the outside of the elbow.
There are many treatment options for tennis elbow. In most cases, treatment involves a team approach. Primary doctors, physical therapists, and, in some cases, surgeons work together to provide the most effective care. Specific exercises are helpful for strengthening the muscles of the forearm. Your therapist may also perform ultrasound, ice massage, or muscle-stimulating techniques to improve muscle healing.
