  1. 1. Sports Injury Dr. Satyen Bhattacharyya Associate Professor: BIMLS, Bardhaman
  2. 2. DEFINITION • A sports injury is any bodily damage sustained during participation in competitive or noncompetitive athletic activity. Sports injuries can affect bones or soft tissue (i.e, muscles, ligaments, tendons).
  3. 3. DESCRIPTION • Sports injuries are identified as either acute or chronic. Acute sports injuries are characterized by the sudden appearance of symptoms, usually associated with a single traumatic accident. Signs and symptoms of acute sports injuries include pain, swelling, and deformity in the affected area, and in the joint injuries, limited ability to move the joint. Common acute sports injuries include sprains and strains, contusions (i.e, serious bruises), joint dislocations, bone fractures, and concussions.
  4. 4. CLASSIFICATION • Among the various classifications proposed for sports injuries the one proposed by WILLIAMS (1971) is widely used and recommended.
  5. 5. TYPES OF SPORTS INJURY Acute :- An injury that occurs suddenly such as a sprained ankle caused by an awkward landing is known as an acute injury. E.g, Acute tenosynovitis of wrist extensors in canoists. Chronic :- Chronic injuries are caused by repeated overuse of muscle groups or joints. Poor technique and structural abnormalities can also contribute to the development of chronic injuries.E.g, March fracture in soldiers.
  6. 6. Overuse injury :- These are caused by excessive and repeated use of the same muscle, joint or bone.
  7. 7. Soft tissue injury Muscle sprains, Strains and Bruises Hard tissue Joints and Bones Dislocated joints Fractured bones
  8. 8. Most common sports injuries in upper limb. Shoulder complex : • Rotator cuff injury • Shoulder dislocation • Fracture clavicle : Bicipital tendinitis or rupture Elbow : Tennis elbow Golfer's elbow
  9. 9. Wrist : Wrist pain Carpal tunnel syndrome HAND: • Mallet injury • Baseball finger • Jersey thumb
  10. 10. Most common sports injuries in LOWER limb • HIP • Quadriceps strain • Hip pain • Groin pain due to adducter strain • KNEE JOINT • Jumpers knee • Fracture patella • Knee ligaments injuries • Meniscal injuries.
  11. 11. • LEGS • Calf muscle strain • Hamstrings sprain • Ankle injuries • Ankle sprain • Injury to Achilles tendon
  12. 12. • Foot • March fracture • Jones fracture
  14. 14. Rotator cuff injury The rotator cuff is made up of 4 group of muscles. The muscles include the supraspinatus, infraspinatus, teres minor and subscapularis. The scapula is responsible for stabilizing the glenohumeral joint, abducting, externally rotating and internally rotating the humerus.
  15. 15. Injury in sports Rotator calf injury is common in athletes and sports persons. Supraspinatus and Infraspinatus are the most commonly injured rotator cuff muscles particularly in sports which involve a lot of shoulder rotation for example bowling in cricket, pitching in baseball, swimming and kayaking. The injury is also more common in the older athlete, particularly where long term overuse or degeneration is present.
  16. 16. Supraspinatus tendon tear
  17. 17. MECHANISMS
  18. 18. CAUSES: Repetitive stress: Repetitive overhead movement of the arms can stress the rotator cuff muscles and tendons causing inflammation and eventually tearing. Impingement : Falls or incorrect throwing techniques or arm movements and weak shoulder muscles may cause the humerus to move up and trap the tendon.
  19. 19. Calcium deposits : Calcium may deposits in the tendons due to decrease oxygen and poor blood supply. This deposits may cause irritation and inflammation. Normal wear and tear : The rotator cuff tendons can degenerate due to ages ( starting around 40). This can cause a breakdown of fibrous protein ( collagen) in the cuff’s tendon and muscles.
  20. 20. Symptoms Pain in shoulder and radiate to arm. Difficulty in movement especially to abduction. Loss of range of motion.
  21. 21. INVESTIGATION Arthography X RAY MRI Arthroscopy
  22. 22. TREATMENT Initial Care,Rest the shoulder,Ice pack Immobilize the shoulder by sling Medicine Anti inflammatory drug Surgery (If there is a large tear in rotator cuff, surgery may be needed to repair the rotator cuff. This is two type open repair through 6 to 10 cm incision or as an arthroscopic incision).
  23. 23. PHYSIOTHERAPY MANAGEMENT During the initial acute stage rest in the sling. Cryotherapy, UST, TENS, SWD During the later stages Isometric exercises for shoulder joint muscles, Mobilization of shoulder joint. Exercise- Gravity eliminated abduction, Flexion extension exercises, pendulum swing. UST, TENS, SWD.
  24. 24. TREATMENTS
  25. 25. PREVENTION Warm up stretching and strengthening of the shoulder muscles. Avoiding certain sports which constantly cause friction to the shoulder. Avoiding sudden jerky movements and abrupt lifting of heavy weights.
  26. 26. shoulder DISLOCATION Shoulder dislocations occur when the head of the humerus pops out of the shoulder joint. It occurs more commonly in adults, and is rare in children.
  27. 27. TYPES OF DISLOCATION Anterior Dislocation In this injury, the head of the humerus comes out of the glenoid cavity and lies anteriorly. This dislocation is more common the other dislocations. Subtypes depending on the position of the dislocated head,Preglenoid Head lies in front of the glenoid. Subcoracoid Head lies below the coracoid process. Subclavicular Head lies below the clavicle.
  28. 28. Posterior Dislocation In this injury, the head of the humerus comes to lie posteriorly behind the glenoid. Inferior dislocation (Luxatio erecta) This is the rare type where the head comes to lie in the subglenoid position.
  29. 29. Causes Shoulder joint is the commonest joint in the body to dislocate. Shoulder joint is more mobile than stable. The glenoid cavity is small than the head of the humerus.
  30. 30. Injury in sports • Shoulder dislocation common in Football, Hockey, Gymnastic, downhill skiing, Volleyball.
  31. 31. SYMpTOMS The patient enters the casualty with his shoulder abducted and the elbow is supported with opposite hand. Pain Inability to move the shoulder.
  32. 32. INVESTIGATION X-ray CT Scan
  33. 33. TREATMENT For acute dislocation reduction under sedation or general anaesthesia followed by immobilisation of the shoulder in a chest arm bandage for three weeks. Techniques of reduction Kocher’s manoeuvre- Most commonly used method. The steps are as follows- i)Traction ii)External rotation iii)Adduction iv)Internal rotation
  34. 34. PHYSIOTHERAPY MANAGEMENT Initial 3 weeks Phase of immobilization and the affected arm is fastened to the trunk in a position of the adductuion and int. rotation. Active exercises of wrist and finger. Self isometric contraction of Biceps, Triceps & Deltoid are begun.
  35. 35. 3 weeks later • Strapping are removed and the limb is supported in a sling • Shoulder Mobilization is done • Flexion extension then abduction and ext. rotation • Strengthening exercises
  36. 36. FRACTURE CLAVICLE The clavicle is a S shaped bone that act as a structure between the sternum and the glenohumeral joint. It gives power and stability of the arm, motion of the shoulder gridle, protects neuro vascular structures.
  37. 37. MECHANISM OF INJURY Direct Due to fall on the point of the shoulder. This is the most common mode of injury. Direct trauma Over the clavicle due to assault RTA. Indirect Fall on the outstretched hands.
  38. 38. INJURY IN SPORTS • Fracture in clavicle common in football, Biking, skating, ice hockey etc.
  39. 39. SYMPTOMS Pain. Swelling. Deformity. Inability to raise shoulder.
  40. 40. DIAGNOSIS X-ray CT scan
  41. 41. TREATMENT It may be conservative or surgical. Conservative Treatment Supports the arm in a sling Until the pain subside, usually 1 to 3 weeks. Figure of 8 bandage. Clavicle ring, Analgesics. Rehabilitation The patient should be instructed regarding hand, wrist and elbow exercises during immobilization. And regarding shoulder exercises once fracture healed.
  42. 42. Surgical Treatment Closed reduction and percutaneous fixation with K-wires Open reduction and internal fixation with plate screws.
  43. 43. COMPLICATION Neurovascular Injury- subclavian and brachial plexus Malunion- very common, cosmetic problem, no treatment is required. Nonunion- rare and requires open reduction, rigid internal fixation and bone grafting.
  44. 44. BICIPITAL TENDINITIS • Bicep tendinitis is an inflammation of the upper biceps tendon. Also called the long head of the biceps tendon, this strong, cord like structure connects the biceps muscle to the bones in the shoulder. • Pain in the front of the shoulder and weekness are common symptoms of biceps tendinitis.
  45. 45. Causes • Damage to the biceps tendon is due to a lifetime of normal activities or overuse repeating the same shoulder motions again and again. • Overhead motion such as swimming,tennis & baseball.
  46. 46. Symptoms • Pain or tenderness in front of the shoulder. • • Radiating pain towardas wrist. • Pain in movement. • Pain in overhead activity.
  48. 48. SPECIAL TESTS • Speeds test • Yergason test
  49. 49. TREATMENT Ice packs on shoulder for 20 to 30 minutes every 3 to 4 hours for 2 or 3 days. Anti inflammatory oral steroid. Corticosteroids. Arthroscopic surgery Open surgical repair.
  50. 50. PHYSIOTHERAPHY MANAGEMENT Transverse gliding of the tendon & cross friction massage. Electrical stimulation and UST. Moist heat. ROM EX. Of shoulder with mild stretching of the biceps tendon. Pendulam exarcises. Isometric execises then eccentric exercises. Swiss ball exercises. Rotator cuff strengthening exercises.
  51. 51. EXERCISES

  53. 53. ELBOW
  54. 54. TENNIS ELBOW This is a condition characterised by pain and tenderness at the later epicondyle of the humerus due to non specific inflammation at the origin of the extensor muscles of the forearm. It was first described from the writer’s cramps by range in 1873. it was Madris who called it as “tennis elbow” shortly thereafter.
  55. 55. CAUSES Repeating the same motion over and over again like making roll for chapatis. Playing a racquet sports such as tennis or badminton Carrying heavy loads Constant more use computer keyboard and mouse.
  56. 56. Famous sports man who had Tennis Elbow
  57. 57. SYMPTOMS Pain may slowly increase around the outside of the elbow. Pain is worse when shaking hands or squeezing objects. Pain is made worse by stabilizing or moving the wrist with force. Example including lifting, opening jars, etc.
  58. 58. INVESTIGATION X-ray MRI Special Test Cozen’s test

  61. 61. Post acute phase Patient is instructed to avoid repeated wrist extension and supination movement. Exercises passive exercises resistive exercises strengthening exercises Surgical treatment also occur to relive severe pain for 6 weeks at least, Failure to respond in any management. After surgery physiotherapy is also done.
  62. 62. EXERCISES
  63. 63. GOLFER’S ELBOW It is a tendinopathy of the insertion of the epitrochlear muscles (Flexors of the fingers of the hands and pronators). The inflammation is at the origin of the flexor tendons at the medial epicondyle of the humerus.
  64. 64. CAUSES It affects men and female equally. Age mainly between 30 to 50 years. Golfers elbow is caused predominately by activities that require repetitive or excessive bending of the wrist. An incorrect golf swing is a common cause, but many other sports or work related activities can caused the problem.
  65. 65. • In sports mainly seen in Golf,cricket,swimming, tennis players are affected most. • Due to repeted movements and overload of flexor muscles inflammation occurred at medial epicondyle.
  66. 66. SYMPTOMS Pain and tenderness on the inside of the elbow mainly at the medial side of elbow. Increase elbow pain when bend or flex the wrist. Gripping & squeezing down tightly on an object increase elbow pain. Pain is worse when shaking hand.
  67. 67. INVESTIGATION X-ray MRI Special Test - Medial epicondylitis test Elbow flexed, forearm pronated-pain passivly flexed pt. wrist & asked the pt. to extend the elbow, pt. forearm passivly supinated. Pain in the medial side.

  70. 70. PHYSIOTHERAPY MANAGEMENT Acute phase • Rest with POP splint • Ultrasound, SWD • Cryotherapy • Electrical Stimulation • Massaging • Active exercises ( Isometrics) • Progressive resisted exercises • Manipulation
  71. 71. Post acute phase Patient is instructed to avoid repeated wrist flexion and pronation movement. Exercises passive exercises resistive exercises strengthening exercises Surgical treatment also occur to relive severe pain for 6 weeks at least, Failure to respond in any management. After surgery physiotherapy is also done
  72. 72. CARPAL TUNNEL SYNDROME The carpal tunnel is bounded by bones on three sides and a ligament on one side. The floor is an osseous arch formed by the carpal bones and the roof is formed by the transverse carpal ligament. Carpal tunnl syndrome was first described by Sir James Paget in 1854, but the term was coined by Moerisch.
  73. 73. It caused by compression of the median nerve in the carpal tunnel along with the tendon of the flexor digitorum superficialis and flexor pollicis longus muscles. The tunnel can narrow creating pressure on the nurve for a number of reasons: Traumatic wrist injury such as wrist sprain or broken wrist Repetitive strain injury caused by the over used of the wrist.
  74. 74. SYMPTOMS Tingling Numbness Pain Weakness Clumsiness Symptoms are more at night
  75. 75. Some tests Phalen’s test The patient is asked to actively place the wrist in complete but unforced flexion. If tingling and numbness are produced in the median nerve distribution of the hand within 60 secs, the test is positive. Median nerve percussion test The examiner gentaly taps the median nerve at the wrist. The test is positive if there is tingling sensation present.
  76. 76. PHALENS TEST
  77. 77. TREATMENT Non operative methods Non steroidal anti inflammatory drugs Steroids like prednisolone, tapering Carpal tunnel splint Physiotherapy Management UST, SWD Exercises Gentle relaxed passive movements, active assisted and active movement of the wrist and fingers area.
  78. 78. HAND
  79. 79. MALLET INJURY This is a flexion deformity of the DIP joint. It is an injury of the extensor digitorum tendon of the finger at the distal inter phalengeal joints. It results from hyperflexion of the tendon usually occur catching a cricket ball, basket ball volley ball, in the bed tucking etc.
  80. 80. SYMPTOMS • Pain • Swelling • Deformity • Tingling • Unable to extend the finger
  81. 81. INVESTIGATION • Xray
  82. 82. TREATMENT • Closed splinting of the DIP joint in hyper extension for 6- 8 weeks • Night splinting for 4- 6 weeks. • In avulsion fracture open reduction and internal fixation. • Ice packs.

  84. 84. HIP HIP:
  85. 85. QUADRICEPS STRAIN A strain is a tear in a muscle or the tendon that attaches the muscle to bone. A quadriceps strain is a tear in the muscles on the front of the thigh or their tendons. The quadriceps muscles are important for straightening the knee and bending the hip.
  86. 86. STRAIN • Classified into three categories- • Grade -1 Cause pain but the tendon is not lengthened. • Grade-2 lengthened ligamint due to being stretched,function is maintained. • Grade-3 complete tear of tendon,function impaired.
  87. 87. Grades of STRAIN
  88. 88. CAUSES • Muscle tightness • Muscle fatigue • Muscle imbalances • Incorrect exercise technique • Inadequate warm up period • Direct trauma

  102. 102. Knee
  103. 103. Jumpers Knee • Jumpers knee is also known as patellar tendinitis is a relatively common cause of pain in the inferior patellar region in athletes. It is common with frequent jumping and studies have shown it may be associated with stiff ankle movement and ankle sprains. • • The term jumper’s knee was first used in 1973 to describe an insertional tendinopathy.
  104. 104. • Injury happened particularly those participating in jumping sports such as basketball, volleyball,football, high or long jumping. Tenderness is present over the inferior pole.
  105. 105. Signs and Symptoms • Anterior knee pain often with aching quality.Onset is insidious. Involvment of infrapatellar area may be surpapatellar. Pain during athletic motion Swelling Bruising or redness Discomfort during daily activites.
  106. 106. Depending on the duration of symptoms, jumpers knee can be classified into 1 of 4 stages, as follows~ Stage 1- Pain only after activity, without functional impairment. Stage 2- Pain during and after activity, although the patient is still able to perform satisfactorily in his or her sport.
  107. 107. Stage 3- Prolonged pain during and after activity, with increasing difficulty in performing at a satisfactory level. Stage 4- Complete tendon tear requiring surgical repair. It begins as inflammation in the patellar tendon where it attaches to the patella & may progress by tearing the tendon.
  108. 108. CAUSES It is an overuse injury from repetative overloading of the extensor mechanism of the knee. The microtears exceed the body s healing mechanism unless the activity is stopped. Among the risk factors for patellar tendonitis are low ankle dorsiflexion, weak gluteal muscles, and muscle tightness, particularly in the calves, quadriceps muscle, and hamstrings.
  109. 109. DIAGNOSIS • X-RAY • MRI • Physical examination. • Consideration of patient medical history.
  110. 110. TREATMENT • NSAIDS include ibuprofen • Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation. • Steroids injections • Patellar tendon strap. • Surgery (STAGE 4 INJURY )
  111. 111. PHYSIOTHERAPHY TREATMENT • Decrease activities that increase patellofemoral pressure • (eg, jumping, squatting) • Joint full ROM exercises • Stretching- Hamstrings, rectus femoris, adductors, quadriceps, gluteals, iliopsoas. • Srengthening exercises. • Cryotheraphy. • Dry Needling. • Sports specific proprioceptive training. • UST.
  113. 113. KNEE LIGAMENTS INJURY The knee is the largest joint in our body and one of the most complex.It is also vital yo movement. Knee ligaments connect our thighbone to our lower leg bones.Knee ligament sprains or tears are a common sports injury. In the past injuring more than one knee ligament would put an end to future sports activities.Today many athletes are able to return to high level sports following multiple ligament injuries.
  114. 114. MAJOR KNEE LIGAMENTS ACL- Anterior Cruciate Ligament. PCL- Posterior Cruciate Ligament. MCL- Medial Collateral Ligament. LCL- Lateral Collateral Ligament. Coronary Ligament. Among them ACL & PCL are most commonly injured in sports activities.
  115. 115. ACL INJURY • Anatomy: • • origin: Medial and anterior aspect of the tibial plateau. • Insertion:Lateral femoral condyle. Function: Prevents excessive tibial medial & lateral rotation. • Provides restraining force of anterior translation.
  116. 116. • One of the most common knee injuries is an anterior cruciate ligament sprain or tear. • MECHANISM: • Hyperextension force • Twisting force on a semiflexed knee.
  117. 117. CLINICAL FEATURES: • Immediately collapse and is painful. • Popping sensation felt or heard. • Swelling. • Giving away.
  118. 118. CLASSIFICATION: • Ligaments sprain are classified in three degrees: • 1st Degree: Tear of only a few fibres of the ligament.Minimal swelling, localised tenderness but little functional disability. • 2nd Degree: Almost all the fibres of a ligament are disrupted. Pain, swelling and inability to use the limb.Normal joint movements. • 3rd Degree: Complete tear of the ligament.
  119. 119. DIAGNOSIS: • Clinical Examinations. • X-RAY • MRI • Arthroscopy (where doubt persists).
  120. 120. SPECIAL TESTS • Lachmans test • Anterior drawer test • Pivot shift test. • McMurrey test
  121. 121. TREATMENT CONSERVATIVE: Most cases of grades 1 and 2. The hematoma is aspirated and the knee is immobilized in a commercially available knee immobilizer. After a few weeks the adequate strength can be regained by physiotheraphy.
  122. 122. OPERATIVE: Indicated in multiple ligaments injured knee, especially in young athletes. performed 2-3 weeks after injury after acute phase subside.
  123. 123. • OTHERS METHOD: • Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation. • NSAIDS • Corticosteroids. • Knee Band.
  124. 124. PHYSIOTHERAPHY TREATMENT • Mobility exercises: • Static quads/SLR • Ankle DF/PF/CIRCUMDUCTION • Knee flexion/extension in sitting • Patellar mobilisations • Glute exercises in prone • Knee flexion in prone. • Strenghtening ex. Of knee
  125. 125. • Neuromuscular electrical stimulatuin • UST • ICE packs • Full ROM EX. • VMO EX.
  126. 126. PT MANAGEMENT
  128. 128. PCL INJURY • ANATOMY: ORIGIN: The posterior intercondyler area of the tibia. INSERTION: Medial condyle of the femur. FUNCTION: Keeps the tibia from moving backwarda too far.
  129. 129. • DEFINATION: • It is less common than ACL tears. • MECHANISMS: • Backward force on tibia.
  130. 130. CLINICAL FEATURES: • Pain and swelling that occurs steadily and quickly after the injury. • Swelling that makes the knee stiff. • Difficulty in walking. • The knee feels unstable like it may give out.
  131. 131. Sports are a common cause of PCL injury. • Football • Soccer • Baseball • Skiing
  132. 132. CLASSIFICATION OF INJURY • According to the severity: • Grade 1- PCL has a partial tear . • Grade 2- Ligament is partially torn and is looser than grade 1. • Grade 3- Ligament is completely torn and the knee becomes unstable. • Grade 4- PCL is damaged along with another ligament of knee.
  134. 134. SPECIAL TEST: • Posterior Drawer test:
  135. 135. TREATMENT: • Protect, Rest, Icing, Compression, Elevation are performed. • NSAIDS. • Corticosteroids • Surgery (grade 3 injury).
  136. 136. PHYSIOTHERAPHY TREATMENT: • Using crutches at first, then gradually walking with more weight on the knee. • Full ROM exercises. • Use a knee brace. • Strengthening ex. of thigh muscles. • Treadmill ex or walking or running in a pool. • Specific training needed for a sports. • Neuromuscular electrical stimulation. • UST.
  137. 137. Rehabe exercises:
  138. 138. Meniscal Injury • The semilunar cartilages are two crescent shaped plates of fibrocartilage placed on condyler surface of the tibia. • FUNCTIONS- • Increase the stability of knee. • Controlling the complex rolling and the gliding actions of the joint. • Distributing load during movement.
  139. 139. • Definition Medial meniscus is more commonly injured than the lateral and is usually associated with other ligament injuries of the knee. Mainly seen in football, basketball, cricket, rugby etc.
  141. 141. CAUSES In young- twisting force with the knee bent and taking weight. In Middile- fibrosis has decreased the mobility of meniscus and hence tear occurs with less force. Over activity in sports.
  142. 142. Clinical Features • Usually a young person • Pain usually on the middle side • Knee is locked in partial flexion • Swelling
  143. 143. DIAGNOSIS • McMurray s test • Apley compression test

  168. 168. • Ankle sprain is a common injury in sports. If improperly treated it may result in chronic laxity, pain or delayed recovery. • Mechanisms: • Inversion of supinated planter flexed foot.
  169. 169. Clinical Features: • Ant talofibular ligament commonly injured followed by calcaneofibular ligament. • The post talofibular ligament is rarely sprained. • Pain, swelling and tenderness over the affected ligament.
  170. 170. Diagnosis: • X-RAY. • MRI. • Ant Drawer Test: If the displacement of talus is more than 8 mm ant, it suggests laxity of the ant talofibular ligament. • Talar tilt test- If the tilt is more than 5 DEGREE it suggests laxity of ant talofibular and calcaneofibular ligaments.
  171. 171. A: Ant Drawer test. B: Talar Tilt test.
  172. 172. Management: • Grade 1 : • ICE, Compression bandage, foot elevation, NSAIDS. • Grade 2: • Long leg cast, ROM EX, strengthening ex. • Grade 3: • Same as grade 2 sometimes requir surgical care.
  173. 173. TREATMENT:
  174. 174. Achilles Tendon • The achilles tendon or heel cord also known as the calcaneal tendon is a tendon of the back of the leg, and the thickest in human body. It serves to attach the calf muscles to the calcaneus (heel) bone. These muscles acting via the tendon, cause plantar flexion of the foot at the ankle and knee flexion.
  175. 175. Achilles Tendinities • Achilles tendinitis is the tendinitis of the achilles tendon caused by overuse of the affected limb and is more common among athletes training under less than ideal conditions.
  176. 176. Signs & Symptoms • Symptoms can vary from an ache or pain and swelling to the local area of the ankles or a burning that surrounds the whole joint. With this condition the pain is usually worse during and after activity and the tendon and joint area can become stiffer the following day as swelling impings on the movement of the tendon.
  177. 177. CAUSES • Achilles tendon injuries are common in people who do things where they quickly speed up, slow down, or pivot such as; • Running • Gymnastics • Football • Baseball • Tennis • Basketball • Tight leg muscle.
  178. 178. Diagnosis: • X-RAY • MRI • USG • Physical Examination.
  179. 179. Treatment: • Rest: avoid putting weight on legs. Need crutches • Ice: icing for 20 minutes • Compress leg: use an elastic bandage around ankle to keep down swelling. • Raise leg • NSAIDS: Ibuprofen, Naproxen. • Use a heel lift. • Surgery
  180. 180. PT Management: • Calf muscle stretching • Strenghtening ex. • ROM ex. • Active daily ex. • Extracorporeal shock wave theraphy • UST • Tapping • Night splints. • Laser
  181. 181. Rehabe exercises:
  182. 182. Foot
  183. 183. March Fracture: • Also known as fatigue fracture or stress fracture of metatarsal bone, is the fracture of the distal third of one of the metatarsals occuring because of recurrent stress. • Its one of the most common sports injuries. Mainly seen in running, football, basketball due to heavy stress in lower bones.
  184. 184. Stages in development: 1. Crack initiation. 2. Crack propagation. 3. Rapid failure of bone. Bone can repair itself quickly pathological strain is removed before the third stage.
  185. 185. Clinical features: • History of unaccustomed & repeated activity. • Pain after ex. Pain during ex. Pain without ex. • Load related pain. • Swealling. • Tenderness. • Leg lenth discrepancy, muscle imbalance excessive subtalar pronation.
  186. 186. Diagnosis: • X-RAY • CT SCAN • MRI - for more specific.
  187. 187. Treatment: • Rest to allow the bone remodeling process. • Identify and correct any predisposing factor. • Training errors- identified and corrected. • Non wt bearing cast immobilisation. • ice., compression . • NSAIDS • CORTICOSTEROIDS.
  188. 188. PT Management. • Mobilisation • Active rom ex. • Strengtening ex • UST • LASER.
