Should I use ice or heat on my injury?

Ice should be applied to the injured area in the acute stages which is usually within the first 24-48 hours. Ice reduces inflammation and swelling by decreasing blood flow to the area. Heat is typically used after the initial infliction of injury; it increases blood flow and aids in the healing process by delivering blood and nutrients to the area. Heat is also good to use before exercise or physical activity to lower the possibility of getting hurt. Heat should not be applied to fresh surgical incisions as it could make the incision bleed.

What are the usual treatment options for a concussion?

Concussions are a common sports ailment among patients who play contact sports. Concussions are caused due to the result of a trauma that causes the brain to smack against the front of the skull and then the back, causing inflammation in the brain. They can be mild to serious and if left untreated or a patient has recurring concussions, it could cause long term serious effects. Concussions can have long term effects; it is important to know the signs and symptoms.

  • Nausea
  • Dizziness
  • Fogginess
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Vision changed
  • Irritability
  • Changes in sleep behavior
  • Fatigue

Recovery of a concussion usually takes between 10-14 days but may depend on the circumstances and history of concussions.

What are the most common sports knee injuries?

Cortisone injections is an injectable steroid administered into synovial and soft tissues to help reduce the inflammation in these areas. It is not a pain reliever, but patients have experienced a relief in pain due to the reduction of inflammation. They are commonly used for conditions such as bursitis, arthritis, stiffness, and tendinitis. An epidural is also a steroid injection, but it is used to reduce the inflammation of spinal nerves. The epidural is administered to relieve neck, back, leg, and arm pain from various conditions that could be compressing nerves. It is injected directly into the spinal canal and sometimes patients need 2 or 3 injections before experiencing significant relief.

  • Ligament injury

  • Tendon tear

Most common symptoms of an issue are pain and swelling, as well as problems moving the joint, feeling it lock up or “catch” as you try and bend it or straighten your leg. If your pain is due to overexertion a simple RICE technique is all you need, but sometimes surgery and physical therapy is needed for pain management.
