Arthroscopy & Sports Medicine: Diseases & Conditions
Yashoda Institute of Sports Medicine & Arthroscopy specializes in the treatment of wide range of sports injuries and trauma. Some of the commonly treated injuries include fractures, stress fractures, sprains, strains twisting/sprain of an ankle or wrists, ligament tears, tendon ruptures, shoulder dislocation or dislocated shoulder, shoulder impingement, muscle strain, repetitive motion injuries or overuse syndrome, damaged cartilage contusions and other sports-related injuries. The multidisciplinary team of sports medicine specialists, arthroscopic surgeons, orthopedic surgeons and physical therapists collaborate to treat sports-related & degenerative injuries in sportspersons. We offer surgical options for sports injuries, namely:
- Rotator cuff injury: Any injury in the muscles & tendons of rotator cuff can cause dull pain in the shoulders which worsens in side-sleeping position. The pain may cause weakness in arms and difficulty in combing hairs or reaching behind the back. Any activities involving repetitive over-head motions as in badminton & tennis players. The risk for rotator cuff injury increases with age. Rotator cuff tears due to single injury needs immediate medical care. Any extensive rotator cuff tears may require surgical repair of the cuff, transfer of alternative tendons or joint replacement.
- Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tear: The tear in the anterior cruciate ligament may occur due to sudden twisting motion, mostly seen in dancers, football, basketball, and tennis players. ACL injuries and other ligament injuries in the knee joints cause swelling, instability and pain around the knee. The treatment may include surgeries for ligament repair or ligament reconstruction with physiotherapy.
- Hamstring injury: Also called as pulled hamstring, it is caused due to excess strain on the muscles of the back of the thighs. Basis the severity of damage, it is graded as:
- Grade 1: Mild strain or pull
- Grade 2: Partial muscle tear
- Grade 3: Complete muscle tear
- Tennis elbow: Overloading of the tendons of the elbow causes pain that spreads from the forearm muscles into the wrist. The pain is noticed prominently when trying to shake hands, grip an object, turn a doorknob etc. Conservative treatments can relieve pain but in chronic conditions, doctors might suggest a surgery. Commonly noticed in sportspersons participating in racket sports. Doctors may suggest a surgical procedure called as Tennis elbow release for relief.
- Golfer’s elbow is commonly seen but not limited to people playing golf. It is also noticed in people repeatedly using their wrist or clenching their fingers. While tennis elbow occurs outside of the elbow, Golfer’s elbow occurs inside of the elbow. Doctors may suggest a surgical procedure called as Golfer’s elbow release for relief.
Our approach consists of making a complete diagnosis by checking the injury thoroughly followed by formulating a management plan. The department is well equipped with all the necessary machines for the assessment of the injury and also to provide treatment for it. All these have been made for the comfort of the patients and to provide them with quality service.
