A new book from Scandinavia raises the bar no pun intended in sports medicine textbooks. The main strength of this book is its use of lavish high quality illustrations throughout with over colour pictures and photos.
Everything You Need to Know About Sports Injuries and Rehab
It is more considerate to manipulate the joint back into position after the patient is anesthetized. An X-ray should be taken before the reduction to exclude a concurrent fracture and again after the reduction to check alignment. After manipulation, the arm is immobilized against the body in order to reduce pain and to allow the joint capsule and ligaments to heal.
The time of immobilization is controversial. The older athlete may use a sling for 1—2 weeks, but should intermittently remove the sling to perform range-of-motion exercises.
The period in a sling may be extended for the young athlete in whom the danger of redislocation is high, especially if this is a first dislocation. In recurrent dislocations, an early, thorough muscle-strength training program can be initiated. Range-of-motion exercises pp. Figure 6. C Bankart lesion in the joint detachment of the labrum.
Healing and complications — If there are no complications, a dislocated shoulder heals well. Light conditioning and gentle exercise can be resumed after 2—4 weeks. Patients who sustain their first dislocation before the age of 25 years are at great risk of recurrent dislocations.
If dislocations occur more than three or four times, surgery to stabilize the joint should be considered. The results are good to excellent. With open stabilization, such as the Bankart procedure, the Figure 6. In young athletes, the open procedure is therefore still the treatment of choice. However, in older athletes, arthroscopic treatment can be attempted, provided the athlete is aware of the lower success rate.
Return to sports involving the affected arm is usually possible after 4—6 months. Shoulder instability It is important to make a distinction between laxity and instability. Shoulder laxity is a translation of the humeral head on the glenoid socket in the absence of clinical symptoms or pathologic changes. This means that normal shoulders may be lax without being unstable.
When the laxity results in clinical symptoms and is associated with pathologic changes, instability results. Shoulder instability is mostly a chronic, recurrent condition. The direction of the shoulder instability can be anterior and inferior, posterior and inferior, posterior, or multidirectional. The degree can also vary from dislocation to subluxation. Shoulder instability and impingement are a continuum of shoulder disease. Too many classification systems exist but a practical one in sport could be: — type I is pure impingement; — type II is secondary impingement and primary instability caused by capsular trauma; — type III is secondary impingement with primary instability from associated hyperelasticity; — type IV is pure instability.
Chronic shoulder instability is most common in athletes participating in sports involving throwing or other overhead activities. Chronic fatigue of the dynamic anterior shoulder stabilizers seems to initiate most problems.
As these dynamic stabilizers fatigue, increased and repetitive stress is placed on the static anterior, glenohumeral shoulder joint stabilizers which results in gradual stretching of these stabilizers. A relative imbalance between the anterior and posterior capsule may be the result.
In the early phases there is mostly fatigue or loss of consistency, but no major decrease in performance. At this stage a training program may have good effects with time. Gradual stretching of the anterior structures will occur with anterior subluxation. This will allow the rotator cuff to impinge on the posterior superior surface of the glenoid in the abducted and externally rotated position of the arm, which may eventually progress to fraying of the undersurface of the rotator cuff.
This pattern can be seen in throwing athletes, and in baseball, volleyball, and tennis players. Swimmers have similar shoulder problems. Stress combined with laxity predisposes to internal impingement. Exercises at this stage are very important. The gliding of the joint within the socket may cause pain during and after sporting activity. The athlete often feels as if the shoulder has almost slipped out of the socket in sports such as pole-vault, ice hockey, team handball, volleyball, basketball, American football, and in throwing and racket sports.
In order to treat these injuries successfully, it is important to determine the direction and the magnitude of the instability. Symptoms and diagnosis — Pain in the shoulder joint occurs during and after exercise and competition. This sudden onset of weakness, numbness and tingling in the arm is provoked by certain actions and can be due to a sudden transient subluxation of the shoulder.
The anterior apprehension test is a test for anterior shoulder instability. The arm is forced in abduction and external rotation. The test can be performed in the upright or the supine position. The right hand of the examiner is placed over the humeral head with the thumb pushing from the posterior aspect of the humeral head for extra leverage Figure 6.
The relocation test is performed in patients with a positive apprehension sign and suggests the finding of instability. Immediate relief of pain is considered a positive result.
Stability assessments can be carried out with the athlete in the supine or seated position. The shoulder is positioned in the scapular plane with neutral rotation maintained. Anterior and posterior forces are applied to the proximal humerus and the amount of translation is graded the drawer test Figure 6.

Sports Injuries: Mechanisms, Prevention, and Treatment
Arch Intern Med. Increased participation in sports has led to more sports injuries. Evidence-based methods to prevent sports injuries are needed. A systematic review was conducted of the effects of randomized controlled interventions to prevent sports injuries.
This article is only available in the PDF format. Download the PDF to view the article, as well as its associated figures and tables. This fascinating compendium of the mechanisms of sports injuries and methods for their prevention deals essentially with the emergency treatment of the acute injury on the field. It is not intended as a reference to treatment in depth, but the latter chapters do go into considerable detail in specific specialty areas. The chapters are mainly based on each major sport.

Sports injuries occur during exercise or while participating in a sport. Children are particularly at risk for these types of injuries, but adults can get them, too. Read on to learn more about sports injuries, your treatment options, and tips for preventing them in the first place. Different sports injuries produce different symptoms and complications. The most common types of sports injuries include:.
Exercising is good for you, but sometimes you can injure yourself when you play sports or exercise. Accidents, poor training practices, or improper gear can cause them. Some people get hurt because they are not in shape. Not warming up or stretching enough can also lead to injuries. If you get hurt, stop playing. Continuing to play or exercise can cause more harm. Other possible treatments include pain relievers, keeping the injured area from moving, rehabilitation, and sometimes surgery.
People who participate in sports are more likely than others of the same age to have muscle and tendon injuries and bone fractures. This certainly doesn't mean you should avoid sports - the health benefits far outweigh the cost in terms of sports injuries. Sports injuries are most commonly caused by poor training methods; structural abnormalities; weakness in muscles, tendons, ligaments; and unsafe exercising environments. The most common cause of injury is poor training. For example, muscles need 48 hours to recover after a workout.
Никакое количество люстр под сводами не в состоянии осветить бесконечную тьму. Тени повсюду. И только в вышине витражи окон впускают внутрь уродство мира, окрашивая его в красновато-синие тона. Севильский собор, подобно всем великим соборам Европы, в основании имеет форму креста. Святилище и алтарь расположены над центром и смотрят вниз, на главный алтарь.
Вызовите службу безопасности. И давайте выбираться отсюда. Стратмор поднял руку, давая понять, что ему нужно подумать. Сьюзан опасливо перевела взгляд в сторону люка.
Он попытался сделать из апельсиновой кожуры джем, но чтобы можно было взять его в рот, в него пришлось добавить огромное количество сахара. Так появился апельсиновый мармелад. Халохот пробирался между деревьями с пистолетом в руке. Деревья были очень старыми, с высокими голыми стволами. Даже до нижних веток было не достать, а за неширокими стволами невозможно спрятаться.
