Sports Injuries & Arthroscopy

Today's general public has become more health-conscious and started investing their time in healthy practices, including exercises, sports and games. The common man devotes a sizeable chunk of their time to improve their health through the gym and by involving in sporting activities. The elite athletes push the boundaries of what is humanly possible. Athletes pursue countless train, day and night, strengthening their muscles and improving their techniques, hoping to win championships and smash records.

Unfortunately, injuries—particularly those related to the knee, shoulder and elbow— are a reality at every level of sports, gym and athletics. Even when taking all of the right precautions, even the most seasoned athlete can sustain a shoulder dislocation or a shoulder muscle injury or a tear of their anterior cruciate ligament (ACL). Due to our busy lifestyle, most of us, instead of doing regular exercise, unfortunately, end up as weekend warriors, ultimately predisposing us to some or other kind of sports injuries due to improper training or our weak musculature.

Sports injuries are injuries not just confined to the elite sportsperson alone. These can happen while playing indoor or outdoor sports, while doing physical exercise or even by sustaining a trivial fall. These injuries can result from accidents, improper or non-usage of protective devices, improper training or inadequate stretching or warm-up prior to sporting activity.

However, the public and the athletes can take some comfort in knowing that there are minimally invasive surgical options for many of the most common sports injuries. For the elite individual, who does not require open surgery, an Arthroscopy (Key-hole) is the ideal surgical option because it targets the injured area, while keeping the healthy bone and tissues intact.

The benefits of arthroscopy over open surgery include :

  1. Smaller incisions
  2. Less post-operative pain
  3. Lesser hospitalisation time and rapid recovery
  4. Less invasive to surrounding, healthy areas of the joint
  5. Minimal scarring
  6. Early return to activity
  7. Lesser wound-related complications
