Sports Injury Treatments

  • Full range orthopaedics treatment for distinctive sports injuries that require different treatments
  • Orthopaedics India applies a methodical and personalized approach to each of them
  • From cutting edge regenerative therapies to arthroscopic surgeries all addressed here

PRICE Therapy

  • Minor injuries initially treated at home – such as strains and sprains
  • PRICE therapy used for about 2 to 3 days should also help

P = Protection

  • The area provided support to avoid further injury

R = Rest

  • Reduce physical activity and exercise to avoid further strain to the area
  • A walking stick or crutches help so that the knee and ankle do not bear the weight
  • If injury on the shoulder, apply a sling

I = Ice

  • Every two to three hours, apply an ice pack for about 10 to 15 minutes to the affected area
  • Use a towel to wrap the ice pack so that it does not cause ice burn (if applied directly to skin)

C = Compression

  • During the day limit swelling with elastic compression bandages
  • Tie it across the affected area to alleviate inflammation

E = Elevate

  • Keep the affected part of the body above the area of the heart
  • This reduces pain and improves swelling

Regenerative Stem Cell Therapy

  • Another revolutionary treatment performed by Dr. G. Vijay Balaji, the best sports injury surgeon in Chennai, at Orthopaedics India
  • The procedure treats sports injuries across your shoulder, knees, soft tissues, and other bone injuries
  • Adult stem cells have the ability to treat chronic degenerative pain
  • Therapies include:
    • In the direct surgical application method, stem cells applied directly to bones, torn ligaments, and tendons
    • Sutures bearing stem cells may be applied in the form of a thread-like material coated with stem cells for better healing
    • Subsequently, stem cells directly applied to the affected area in the form of an Injection

Surgical options

When sports injuries still hold you back after lifestyle changes, then it is best to undergo a surgery

Hand and wrist

Preventive measures
