How to treat basketball injuries with 2nd generation radiofrequency

Cómo tratar lesiones de baloncesto con radiofrecuencia de 2ª generación

Basketball is a dynamic sports combining intense and rapid movements, while using both hands and legs. The players are continuously changing directions, performing explosive jumps and making frequent physical contact with the other players. These brusque and repetitive movements significantly increase the probability of injuries. 

The physical demands of basketball, which include high-speed running, sudden stops and jumps to throw or block the ball, put a great deal of pressure on the articulations and muscles. Additionally, the constant contact with other players during the game can lead to sprains, falls and blows, further increasing the risk of injuries. 

In this blog, we will explore how to treat basketball injuries with 2nd generation radiofrequency, an advanced technology that offers efficient and fast solutions to assure an optimal recovery.

The most common basketball injuries

Sprained ankle

Without any doubt, sprained ankles are the most common basketball injury. In 9 out of 10 cases, the lateral external ligament is the most affected one, due in general to a bad touchdown after a jump or after accidentally stepping on another player. This type of sprain causes pain, swelling and limited movement and requires adequate treatment to avoid complications and to assure a swift recovery.

Patellar tendinopathy and patellofemoral chondropathy

Patellar tendinopathies and patellofemoral chondropathies are frequent due to the physical demands of this sport. Tendinopathies are characterized by pain and sensitivity in the area of the patellar tendon, while patellofemoral chondropathy implies wear of the cartilage behind the kneecap, causing pain and difficulty to carry out certain activities that require knee flexion.

Meniscus lesions

Meniscus lesions are quite common as well and can have a significant impact on a basketball players career. Meniscus are C-shaped cartilage structures that act as shock absorbers for the knee, absorbing the impact and providing stability. Meniscus tears can be caused by brusque twisting motions, incorrect jumps or touchdowns or direct impacts. Meniscus tear symptoms include pain, swelling, stiffness and a locking sensation in the knee, restraining the player ‘s mobility and performance.

Injury  of the Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injury (ACL)

The Anterior Cruciate Ligament (LCA) is essential to the stability of the knee and its rupture is one of the most serious injuries a basketball player can suffer.This injury tends to occur during quick turns, brusque changes of direction, jumps or collisions. Al ALC rupture causes pain immediately as well as swelling and a feeling of instability in the knee. Most cases require surgical intervention and long-term recovery. A complete recovery is key to prevent further complications and to assure the player can go back to the game feeling confident and unrestricted.

Contusions, bruises and soft tissue injuries

Contusions, bruises and soft tissue injuries are also common among basketball players. The gravity of these injuries can vary, but a fast and efficient treatment can significantly improve the prognosis and speed up recovery.  

In short, the most frequent basketball injuries go from ankle sprains to tendinopathies to meniscus tears and ACL ruptures. Each of these injuries requires a specific treatment approach and adequate rehabilitation to assure a complete recovery and avoid relapses.
