Most sports injuries can be diagnosed by your sports physician or Orthopaedic Surgeon by asking a few questions followed by physical examination.
The following sports injuries are common amongst recreational and elite athletes:
1. Ankle sprain
2. Non-specific knee pain (knee)
3. Hamstring strain (thigh)
4. Rotator-cuff tendon injury (shoulder)
5. Low Back Pain
6. Tennis elbow and Golfer's elbow
7. Calf muscle strain (Gastrocnemius)
8. Adductor strain
9. Plantar fasciitis
It only takes your clinician 10 - 15 minutes to determine the nature and severity of the injury. Sometimes he may request for further investigations (e.g. X-ray, Ultrasound Scan or MRI) to obtain a more definite diagnoses and determine the extent of injury. These investigations may be useful to determine whether you require surgery.
Usually your clinician will suggest physiotherapy if the sports injury does not require surgery. Some injuries do very well without surgical intervention. If you are an elite athlete, you may undergo a more intensive rehabilitation programme required for your sports. Always discuss the options with your clinician, physiotherapist and coach before deciding on the options of treatment.
