Cure Your Sports Injuries at The Pain Relief Clinic in Singapore
Exercise is an important component of a healthy lifestyle. However, it can also result in injuries. Competitive sports people often suffer from pulled muscles and ligaments, as well as tearing of the cartilage, ligaments and muscles due to excessive training and insufficient rest. Those who enjoy recreational sports or exercise to improve their health can also suffer from sprains and more severe injuries, especially if they are overly enthusiastic about their workout. While many minor injuries resolve within a few days with some rest and self-help measures, it is important to see a doctor for a thorough assessment and diagnosis if the symptoms persist. Our doctor at The Pain Relief Clinic in Singapore is able to assess your sports injuries and recommend the ideal treatment.
The standard approach to many sports injuries involves rest, painkillers and some basic physiotherapy. This depends largely on the body’s intrinsic ability to heal itself. However, this is sometimes not sufficient, especially when the injury is severe, or when the patient is unable to afford adequate rest. Steroidal injections, while useful as a way to reduce inflammation, carry the risk of infections, bleeding, steroid flares, hypo-pigmentation, soft tissue atrophy and tendon ruptures. When these treatments are not successful, there is often a sense of frustration. Athletes have to interrupt their training program and this prevents them from performing their best in competitions. Those who engage in recreational sports can find their momentum of sports participation affected, and also have their sports activities disrupted. Fortunately, advances in sports medicine and medical technology in recent years have offered multiple real and effective options to treat sports injuries at hospitals and clinics around the world, including Singapore.
