Ligament Sprains Singapore
The term "soft tissue injuries" refer to injuries to non-bony tissues of our body, namely the:
Fortunately, our specialist physiotherapists and rehab therapists can possibly provide specific diagnosis to determine what structure(s) are damaged/involved and how severe the condition is - this is an area of specialization for our senior physiotherapists.
And once they've made the conclusive medical diagnosis, they will then customize a treatment plan that is tailored to you and provide specific treatment approaches.
Our ligaments get strained when traumatic stress is placed on the joint
which can either sprain (micro/mini tears) or in worse case scenarios,
you can completely tear the ligament.
Unfortunately....I personally have:
- torn 100% complete tear of my anterior cruciate ligament of my left knee in a sad accident when I was 14 years old in a playground
- ?partial tear of my left shoulder rotator cuff ligament from a gym/weight lifting exercise
So I have some personal experience with ligament strains/tears, and for my left ACL tear, I got it repaired in 2006 and underwent intense 6 months post operative knee physiotherapy to get back to running and sports (one of the reasons why I am super pro specialist physiotherapy and rehab)
So depending on the level of the damage as well as symptoms such as pain, swelling, bruising and decreased movement can be expected. In some cases, patients may also have fractures (also known as avulsion fractures) - which requires an X-ray imaging to confirm and may cause your customized physiotherapy plan to be adjusted if we confirm that you do have a fracture.
- Protect the injury site and do not cause additional injuries
- Load it optimally whilst protecting it (not loading it sufficiently causes it to heal suboptimally)
- Ice + Compression + Elevation to decrease the bruising and swelling, which will decrease pain experience and secondary complications due to swelling (such as stiffness etc). Please note that ice should be applied for not more than 20 minutes, and wrap ice in plastic bag which is then wrapped in towel (never apply ice directly because that'd cause superficial level cooling and possibly iceburn - you want to aim for the cold to go deep)
Our specialist therapists may also apply a joint guard or taping to help protect your joint and decrease the swelling and at the same time, provide limitation to the movement to protect the injured structure. Any injuries should be raised/elevated above the waist for as long as you can whilst you ice it, and this combination will work synergistically together to reduce your swelling and pain.
Physiotherapy and rehab interventions and treatments will then commence, and it will depend on the level and severity of your injury. Once you're ready and comfortable, our specialist physiotherapists will start specific hands on rehab program that is tailored to your injury needs.
