Sports injuries are vast. There are becoming more common with an educated and sport loving population. Obviously sports injuries can involve all parts of the musculoskeletal system. Although the acute injuries are the ones that usually catch the eye the most common ones are the chronic and repetitive injuries of the joints and soft tissue. These can affect the performance of the athlete and take away the joy of exercise.
Fortunately most of these injuries do not need surgery. However they must be assessed thoroughly and the patient must be rehabilitated so that he or she can return to enjoying sports.
Ligament injuries of the knee are one the common injuries seen in our centre. Anterior cruciate ligament injuries are common and a patient who desires to return to pivoting sports is usually recommended to undergo reconstructive surgery. We work closely with sports physiotherapist to ensure optimum outcomes for our patients.
