Beach volleyball is a fun summer activity and a great way to get some exercise while enjoying the beach. Playing beach volleyball involves many unique movements such as quick side-to-side actions, turning, and diving, all while on the uneven terrain of the beach. Because of these unique muscle movements, it can leave you very vulnerable to injury. Here are some tips to help you avoid injuries during your beach volleyball games this summer.

Possible Injuries
Shin Splints: Shin splints occur when your muscles are overexerted. Because beach volleyball involves very unique muscle activity, muscle strain and overexertion are fairly common with this sport.

Rotator Cuff Tendinitis: This injury is caused by irritation of the muscle due to overuse. Serving and spiking will cause extra exertion to this area.

Finger Injuries: Fractures, dislocations, and tendon and ligament tears in your fingers are common in beach volleyball due to improper form when blocking, setting, and digging.

Ankle Sprains: The quick, twisting movements involved in volleyball can contribute to ankle sprains, as well as an awkward landing after a jump.

Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) Injuries: Awkward landings after jumps can lead to ACL injuries, which results in a tear as well as swelling in the knee.

Lower Back Pain: When your muscles or ligaments are strained due to overexertion, you might experience lower back pain. These strains are common due to the unique movements involved in beach volleyball.

Cuts on Feet: One of the dangers of beach volleyball is bare feet in the sand. When foreign objects are in the sand such as garbage or broken glass, you can step on it and cut yourself if you’re not careful.

Prevention
Although there are many injuries associated with beach volleyball, they shouldn’t stop you from enjoying the sport! Proper strength straining techniques for your lower back, shoulders, and legs can all help prevent injury. Ensuring that the muscles worked during beach volleyball are strong will help prevent strain and overexertion.

When possible, wear external ankle support to prevent injury. Properly warm up and cool down your muscles before and after, with stretching and light aerobics. Be sure to get the proper amount of rest after playing. Stay alert while playing and be aware of any foreign objects in the sand.

Improve Your Bone Health With These Tips
Healthy bones are essential to your overall well-being. Although injuries cannot always be avoided, strong and healthy bones are less likely to experience certain injuries than weaker bones. For this reason, it’s important to take steps to ensure that your bones are as healthy as possible. Here are some tips to improve your overall bone health.

Monitor Calcium and Vitamin D Intake
Calcium and vitamin D are two of the most important vitamins involved in bone health. Make sure you’re getting plenty of these vitamins to ensure strong and healthy bones. Greek yogurt and leafy greens are great sources of these vitamins. If you find yourself vitamin deficient in these areas and are unable to change your eating habits, consider taking supplements to increase your intake.

Exercise
Exercising to improve your muscles will also help strengthen your bones. Weight-bearing and muscle-strengthening exercises are especially useful. Try exercises using light dumbbells or resistance bands to improve your strength. Hitting the gym or taking up a new sport will improve your overall strength and bone health.

Maintain a Healthy Lifestyle
A generally healthy lifestyle will help promote bone health. Make sure you’re eating well and cut down on salty and processed foods. Cut down your caffeine intake, as caffeine can prevent the body from properly absorbing calcium. Smoking and excessive drinking can also damage your bone health, so reduce these habits to the best of your ability.

Prevent Injury
Although sometimes injury cannot be prevented, there are steps you can take to decrease your likelihood of injury. Avoid unnecessary risks that can result in injury and always wear protective gear when necessary. Improve your balance through balance training exercises and Tai Chi. Learn posture exercises that will improve balance and strength.

Know Your Family History
If a family member has osteoporosis, it’s more likely that you will also have osteoporosis. Knowing your family’s medical history can be very useful in taking proper preventative measures. If you are aware that your family is prone to osteoporosis, you can take extra steps to prevent it, such as taking calcium and vitamin D supplements.

Talk to Your Doctor
The best way to improve your health in any area is to talk to your doctor. Ask questions and learn strategies that will help improve your bone health. Ask your doctor if you need a bone density test or other tests that will help assess your bone health. When you work with your doctor, you can develop a plan together to ensure that your bones remain healthy and strong.

The warm summer weather means everyone wants to be outside. It’s the perfect time to learn a new sport or improve your skills at an old one. Unfortunately, this uptick of physical activity can often lead to injuries. Whether you’re a seasoned mountain biking pro or a newbie soccer player, no one is immune to the potential risk of injury. Here are some tips to help you prevent sports injuries this summer.

1. Stay Hydrated
Hydration is one of the most important things to keep in mind in the heat. Drinking water keeps your muscles working efficiently. Dehydration will increase your risk of cramps and pulled muscles. Failing to drink water can also lead to heat exhaustion or even heat stroke. It’s easy to bring a bottle of water with you wherever you go and it will save you a lot of problems. So, do yourself a favor, and keep yourself hydrated.

2. Take A Lesson
If you’ve decided to take up a new sport, don’t be afraid to learn from an expert. Someone who is more experienced will notice your bad habits right away and be able to correct any bad form. Learning the fundamentals right away will help you develop safe practices that will decrease your risk for future injury. If you can’t afford a private lesson, consult a friend who might be experienced in the sport. Learning from someone more experienced will be very useful in preventing your future risk of injury.

3. Wear Proper Footwear
One of the most important aspects of any sport is the right footwear. They should provide you with proper support to avoid any strain on your leg muscles or back. Wearing cleats on soft ground will decrease your risk of injuries related to lack of balance. In skateboarding, biking, and hiking, you should make sure your shoes provide you with proper protection.

4. Use Proper Equipment
You should be sure to use whatever safety equipment is required for your sport. For skateboarding, biking, and many contact sports, be sure to wear a helmet to avoid concussions. Use all appropriate padding for sports like football and hockey, and utilize elbow and knee pads when skateboarding. Having the proper safety equipment will greatly decrease your risk of injury during sports accidents.

5. Prepare Your Muscles
If you’ve been slightly less active over the winter, you should be careful to not shock your body. Jumping into a new sport or intense workout can put real strain on your body and risk serious injury. Make sure you properly work out the muscles needed for your sport before hand. Sports like swimming and climbing will engage your entire body and you might find that you need all-over strength training. If you’re planning on hiking, it’s a good idea to strengthen your legs and back. Whatever activity you take up this summer, make sure your body is ready for it.

6. Be Aware of Your Surroundings
When partaking in outdoor sports, it’s important to know your terrain. If you’re hiking, mountain biking, climbing, or train running, research your path ahead of time in order to be prepared. Stay alert and look out for things in your path such as rocks, tree branches, or other hikers. In water sports, it’s important to know the depth of the water and the currents ahead of time to avoid any accidents. Lastly, be sure to check the weather before hand. It will be hard to avoid injury if you’re stuck at the top of a mountain in the pouring rain with no way down but your bike.

What is tennis elbow?


What Is Tennis Elbow?
Tennis elbow, professionally known as Lateral Epicondylitis, “is a painful condition involving the tendons that attach to the bone on the outside (lateral) part of the elbow. Tendons anchor the muscle to bone. The muscle involved in this condition, the extensor carpi radialis brevis, helps to extend and stabilize the wrist. With lateral epicondylitis, there is degeneration of the tendon’s attachment, weakening the anchor site and placing greater stress on the area. This can then lead to pain associated with activities in which this muscle is active, such as lifting, gripping, and/or grasping.” (Source)

Not only is tennis a fun sport to play, it is also one of the most popular warm weather pastimes here in Connecticut. Even year round for those playing on indoor courts! With the beautiful weather ahead, more an more people will be able to get outside and enjoy the game! However, that does heighten the opportunity for injury. Here are some things you can do to help prevent Tennis Elbow:
 
·      Staying in good overall physical shape.

·      Using the correct techniques and movements during activities.

            Using equipment appropriate for your ability, body size, and body strength.

·      Not overusing your arm with repeated movements that can injure your tendon. For example, alternate hands during activities, if possible.

·      Strengthening the muscles of your arm, shoulder, and upper back to help take stress off of your elbow.

Symptoms of Tennis Elbow
Listed below are some of the symptoms for tennis elbow. If you are feeling any of these symptoms, we advise stopping play as soon as possible and stopping in to see us at Comprehensive Orthopaedics. Pain from tennis elbow tends to be gradual and increases over time, so it’s important not to wait until the issue worsens. Symptoms include:

  • Pain that radiates from the outside of your elbow and down your forearm.

  • Tenderness on the outside of your elbow.

  • Weakness in your forearm or a weak grip.

  • Pain when you grip things, twist something or, if you play tennis, especially with backhand strokes.

Tennis Elbow Treatment
Luckily, surgery is regularly necessary in order to treat a case of tennis elbow. Depending on the severity of your injury, recovery time can be anywhere from a couple of days to several weeks or even months. Like most injuries, the more time you provide your elbow to rest and avoid any strenuous activities, the faster it is likely to heal. To speed up the recovery process, give some of these tennis elbow treatment options a try.

  • Ice – depending on the severity, icing the affected area may be helpful for reducing pain and inflammation

  • Anti-inflammatory medications – medications such as ibuprofen or naproxen are commonly recommended

  • Stretching exercises – exercises which stretch the involved forearm muscles can help reduce strain on the inflamed tendons

  • Physical therapy – stretches and strengthening exercises through physical therapy can aid and accelerate the recovery process

  • Cortisone injections – in severe cases, your doctor may recommend cortisone injections for pain relief and to reduce inflammation (Source)

Even injuries that do not require surgery or rehab, are best to be looked at by a professional. Our team is available 7 days a week with no appointments necessary. Are you in pain? Just stop in!

Avoid Common Skateboarding Injuries
Skateboarding continues to grow more and more popular. Men and women, boys and girls of all ages are turning to the sport. For some, a relaxing low-impact cruise is plenty while for others; satisfaction comes from learning new tricks and pushing limits. Although skateboarding may look like a “breeze” from a spectator’s standpoint, there are a wide variety of risks associated with the sport. Continue reading for some insight on how to steer away from common skateboarding injuries.

Unfortunately there is no true way to steer away from common skateboarding injuries all together unless you never actually step foot onto the board. Like many sports, while injury is possible, there are a number of preventative measures you can take to avoid injury.


Safe Skateboarding Equipment
In order to practice skateboarding safely, it’s important to be aware of the various protective gears that are available. Before heading out for a skate, have you considered these items? 

-       Helmet
-       Knee Pads
-       Elbow Pads
-       Wrist Guards
-       Mouth Guard
-       Proper Foot Attire

Although no protective equipment can eliminate the risk of skateboarding injury all together, it certainly plays an impactful role in keeping injuries to a minimum.

Stretching Before Skating
Once you’ve gotten all of your protective equipment, you’re most likely feeling pretty anxious and ready to get out there on that board! Wait! There’s more! Skateboarding requires your body to push, pull, absorb, and bend and a variety of other things that can lead to injury. Before getting on the deck it’s important to go through a regular routine of stretches and exercises. Here are some great stretches for before you hit the skate park, courtesy of Redbull. Like any sport, proper stretching and exercise is important in trying to avoid common skateboarding injuries. Since some parts of the body are used more than others when skateboarding, certain stretches and exercise may be more beneficial than others. We’ve listed some more stretches below! (Source)

Leg Swings: Face a fence or wall and hold on for support; keep your upper body still, and swing your leg side to side 10 times. This stretch loosens your abductor Magnus, long us, braves, pectin us, graceless, and many more parts of your body that sound like organs in the female anatomy. Switch Sides. Repeat.

Trunk Twists: To perform the stretch, start by standing with feet shoulder width apart, arms in front, and face forward. Focus on rotating your torso as much as it will go, not your knees and hips. Rotate from side to side.

Front To Back Leg Swings: Hold onto a fence or wall; keep your upper body still, and swing your leg forward and back 10 times, loosening your gluts (cheeks), hamstrings, and hip flexors. Switch Sides.

Learning To Fall Properly
While you may be thinking it sounds crazy to “fall properly”, there really are ways to take a crash on a skateboard that will, in most cases, leave you at less risk for injury than others. While everyone’s body works differently, some of the things you may try are:

-       Roll to the softer parts of your body
-       Crouch low to minimize the distance in which you are falling.
-       Avoiding extending your arms to catch yourself with your hands.

Learning to properly fall will help you steer away from common skateboarding injuries however, it’s important to take it slow and learn which skills and tactics work best for you. As you continue to progress, your fear levels will likely decrease and you will be able to ride more confidently on the board.

Chances are that no matter your ability level, every skateboarder is going to take their fair share of wipeouts.  Physical preparation, proper safety equipment and learning how to fall are great ways to lower your chances of injury.

If you would like to further discuss ways to avoid common skateboarding injuries you we would be happy to chat! Feel free give us a call at 1-855-424-OUCH or visit us on Facebook!

With the warmer weather making its first appearance of the year, people of all ages are enjoying participating in outdoor sports and activities, exercise, and vacation. Sports such as baseball, softball, tennis, golf and volleyball involve a lot of repetitive arm and shoulder motion that can often lead to the development of common shoulder conditions.

There’s nothing wrong with trying your hardest, but it’s just as important to play smart, as it is to play hard. The first step in playing smart is to learn about injury prevention and know what to avoid. Tendon injuries, cramps, shoulder injuries, muscle tears, and back pain are some of the most common warm weather sporting injuries according to Medicine in Motion, a sports medicine facility based in Austin. Although many athletes give it their all every game, any increase in activity has the potential to cause damage to a body that isn’t prepared for it.

Common Activities That Cause Injury:
-Sports (golf, tennis, baseball, swimming, volleyball)
-Yard work (digging, planting, raking, weeding, spreading straw)
-Painting
-Hammering
-Moving heavy objects
-Repetitive overhead lifting/movements (spring cleaning)

Prevention

Unfortunately, we haven’t yet come up with a way to prevent injuries as a whole. However there are some steps that will be highly beneficial not to skip over.

Annual Physical- Before stepping onto the field or starting the “backyard overhaul”, remember to get your annual physical. For those who don’t take part in Winter sports or physical activities, it’s important for a doctor to give you the “all clear” before jumping right back into regular strenuous activity. 

Proper Stretching- For even the most seasoned athletes and in-shape backyard superheroes, one of the most crucial moments before stepping into action is a proper stretching routine. Stretching the calves, quadriceps (thighs), hamstrings (posterior thighs), lower back, shoulders and neck, can help avoid muscle pulls and joint sprains.

Have you already been injured? A physical therapist can show you the proper stretches that will help your muscles heal more quickly. Additionally, an Orthopedic Ouch Care specialist can be of a great service in cases of severe injuries. If you’ve been injured, our doctors can help you get back on the field – even if the field is your own backyard.

Call the Ortho Ouch Care Hotline (OUCH) at 855-424-OUCH or just walk into our clinic, no appointment necessary to see an orthopedic doctor.  A division of Comprehensive Orthopedics.

Preventing teen sports injuries is truly a team effort. Recent research by Statistic Brain states that 36,250,000 kids between ages 5-18 years old will play organized sports this year. They also stated that 87% of parents acknowledged a worry about injuries in youth sports. With such a high percentage, it’s inevitable that neither the sports involvement by our youth, or worry by their elders is going to decrease any time soon. In order to relieve some of that worry, it is our goal to inform you of ways to best guide your children for a fun, injury-free sporting experience. Injuries can happen to any child who plays sports, but there are some things that can help prevent and treat injuries. Continue reading to find out 4 tips for preventing teen sports injuries.

Preseason Physical

Luckily, most schools and sporting teams will require a preseason physical before a child is allowed to participate in any practices or the field activities. Even if not mandated, it is important to know the value of having this done as a parent. A physical will allow doctors to properly address any areas of concern prior to the athlete’s physical activities that may add additional stress and impact to their bodies among the start of the season.

Stretching and Warm-ups

No matter which sport your child is involved with; the importance of a proper stretching and warm-up routine cannot be overstated. A proper mix of both dynamic and static warm-ups will allow muscles, ligaments and tendons to loosen up and better prevent injury. Many kids have a tendency to run right onto the playing surface upon arrival. Although that excitement is understandable, it’s also important to implement a proper warm-up routine especially when preventing sports injuries is the main goal.

Encourage Well Rounded Athleticism

While preventing teen sports injuries continues to become a top priority for so many, the evolution of indoor turf fields and “all-weather-seasons” has led many kids to be playing their favorite sport year round. Although your child may have a favorite sport, encourage them to try a collection of teams and activities. Focusing on the same sport year round causes stress and impact to be put repetitively on the same muscles and joints. A variety of different athletic activities will allow well-rounded strength and conditioning training and will help reduce teen sports injuries.

Your knees are a complex structure that join the thigh with the leg, and is the largest joint in the human body.  The ligaments around your knee joint are strong, however their use and location leave them susceptible to injury.


Signs Of Knee Injury


Many knee injuries will leave you in strong pain will result in one seeking a doctor’s help, although other forms of injury may not result in immediate discomfort but can intensify over time if not properly treated. If you experience a fall, painful sudden movement, limited range of motion, or a direct blow or trauma to the leg, it’s important to contact a doctor immediately. Swelling, tender points, and bruising are all signs that a possible knee injury has occurred.

Common Knee Injuries And What They Mean


Although an ACL tear seems to be people’s most common first thought after an incident causing severe knee pain to occur, there are several other types of injury that may have occurring as well. Below, we’ll provide you with some brief information about each of those injuries.

Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injury


The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is one of the most commonly injured ligaments of the knee.  In an overview given by The Mayo Clinic, “An ACL injury is the tearing of the anterior cruciate (KROO-she-ate) ligament (ACL) — one of the major ligaments in your knee. ACL injuries most commonly occur during sports that involve sudden stops, jumping or changes in direction — such as basketball, soccer, football, tennis, downhill skiing, volleyball and gymnastics.”


Always be sure to contact an orthopedic specialist. Depending on the severity of injury, rest and rehabilitation or surgery may both be options for recovery. You can find some ACL injury prevention exercises here.

Medial Collateral Ligament


“The medial collateral ligament (MCL) is a wide, thick band of tissue that runs down the inner part of the knee from the thighbone (femur) to a point on the shinbone (tibia) about four to six inches from the knee. The MCL's main function is to prevent the leg from extending too far inward, but it also helps keep the knee stable and allows it to rotate. “ (Source)


MCL injuries are common among athletes that take part in activities that have direct impact involved. This injury is most common when the knee is hit hard from the side. Also,  this is easily  injured at home or work by slipping and twist on a wet surface.  A fall off the ladder or down the stairs is a common source for this injury.

Lateral Collateral Ligament


“The LCL runs along the outside of the knee joint, from the outside of the bottom of the thighbone (femur) to the top of the lower-leg bone (fibula). The LCL helps keep the knee joint stable, especially the outer aspect of the joint.” (Source)


An injury to your LCL could be a strain, sprain or partial to full tearing of the ligament. Due to the location of the Lateral Collateral Ligament, this tends to be one of the more common injuries associated with ones knee.

Posterior Cruciate Ligament


The posterior cruciate ligament is located in the back of the knee. It is one of several ligaments that connect the femur (thighbone) to the tibia (shinbone). The posterior cruciate ligament keeps the tibia from moving backwards too far.


Unlike some of the other ligaments surrounding your knee, significant force is required to severely damage this ligament. In most cases, these injuries are caused by a bent or non-extended knee is hit with powerful impact. Like a car accident when the knee strikes the dashboard or bumper.

Is My Knee Injured? What Should I Do Next?


In many circumstances, knee injuries may not lead to immediate excruciating pain. However, it’s important to not sit, wait and play the guessing game.  Using your knees for just about everything you do on a daily basis, a small injury can worsen in a brief period of time due to improper treatment.  At Ortho Ouch Care CT, a division of Comprehensive Orthopaedics, we offer professional Orthopaedic care with no appointment necessary!
