What are the most frequent traumatic pathologies in athletes?

Management of sports injuries

Although it is highly beneficial, the practice of physical activity always carries a risk of injury, sometimes linked to trauma, lack of warm-up, or overtraining. In all cases, these injuries are painful and require rapid treatment to relieve the patient and reduce the risk of complications in the long term. In fact, the faster the treatment, the greater the chances of recovering one's full physical capacities.

The treatment of sports injuries obviously depends on the type of injury, its severity, but also the patient's goals. Thus, the treatment for a high-level athlete and that for an occasional practitioner will not necessarily be the same.

1. Pain reduction

The doctor’s first objective will be to decrease the pain in order to relieve the patient. Pain relievers or anti-inflammatories are often prescribed, but in some cases a corticosteroid injection may also be necessary.

2. Treatment of the injury

Depending on the type of trauma, the doctor may prescribe rest, immobilization, or refer to trauma surgery. Once the lesion has healed, the patient must rehabilitate the injured region before starting sports activity again.

3. Rehabilitation

This phase of rehabilitation is usually carried out by a physiotherapist, who can offer various rehabilitation exercises, but also treatments based on heat, cold, electricity, ultrasound, traction or balneotherapy.

Your health is our priority.
