What are the most common sports injuries

  1. 1. It is a constant remark from studies thatexercisemay prevent heart disease, stroke,diabetes, muscle pains, high blood pressure,obesity and osteoporosis. Additionally, a newresearch suggests another good thing aboutexercising, particularly to patients with bone andhip problems. Recently, a study published in theBritish Medical Journal finds that the metal-on-metal hip replacement cancer link might not be asclear as orthopedists originally believed.
  2. 2. According on a men’s health magazine, below arethe top ten most commonly experienced sportsinjuries.• Runners Knee Injury• Shoulder Injury• Ankle Sprain• Tennis Or Golf Elbow• Pulled Muscle• Lower Back Pain• Shin Splints• Groin Strain• Concussion• Achilles Tendinitis
  3. 3. Released in April 2011, this study revealed thatexercise can actually delay and even prevent hipreplacement surgeries. The research work wasfunded by the Norwegian Foundation for Healthand Rehabilitation, the Norwegian RheumatismAssociation, and the South-Eastern NorwayRegional Health Authority.
  4. 4. A three-month exercise program shown to havesignificantly delayed and might even preventedhip replacements. This was done in a Norwegianrandomized, controlled trial.
  5. 5. The purpose of the study was to evaluate thetime span to to total hip surgery in osteoarthritispatients. The 109 patients were between 40-80years old who had mild to moderate hip painsand were not yet qualified for hip surgery. Theyparticipated in the exercise program. Thepatients were grouped into two.
  6. 6. While one group gone through both supervisedexercise program and patient education, theother group just h ad patient education. Theparticipants had three 90-minute educationaldiscussions where they were encouraged to stayactive even though they feel minor pains.
  7. 7. Within the first six years following the exerciseprogram, 40% of the participants (22) had theirhip replacement surgery. While in the controlgroup, 57% of the patients (31) had theirartificial hip surgery during the follow-upperiod.
  8. 8. Also, the exercise patients had significantly lesspain and better mobility, not only in the spring2011 but also during the earlier follow-uppoints.
  9. 9. "If you exercise early" in the course of thedisease, "maybe you can prevent surgery long-term,” stated researcher Dr. Linda Fernandes, aphysiotherapist at Diakonhjemmet Hospital inOslo.She added that "but that is just a theory. Wecan’t really say anything about cause and effecthere.”
  10. 10. She further said that the next best step would bea larger randomized trial. In the meantime, theresearch team is analyzing the patients’biomechanics to determine if they are related tothe results of the study.
  11. 11. This recent information is especially essential toosteopoarthritis patients who encountereddefective medical devices such as DePuy PinnacleHip Replacement System manufactured byJohnsons & Johnsons (J&J).
  12. 12. J&J faces a number of lawsuits amid allegationsthat DePuy metal-on-metal hip is prone topremature failure. At the moment, the DePuyMultidistrict Litigation contains hundred ofcases. Expectedly, more DePuy lawsuit is goingto be filed in the coming months. Legalobservers say that the DePuy hip replacementrecall should be an example to othermanufacturing companies to ensure safety oftheir products.
