Hamstring tears are among the most common sporting injuries accounting for one in every five to six sports injuries. They are generally associated with maximal exertion sprinting, acceleration or kicking. Unfortunately, up to a third of sustained hamstring injuries recur with greater severity. As it’s muscle that crosses over two joints, the hamstring has reduced capacity to withstand tension or the force that goes through it, thus making it more susceptible to injury.
Patella dislocations are a common injury and account for approximately 2 to 3% of all knee injuries (Atkin et al, 2020). A patella dislocation occurs when the patella (kneecap) moves out of the groove in which it usually sits, typically shifting in an outward direction. The patella can either dislocate (completely pop out of this groove), or partially dislocate, known as a patella subluxation. Dislocation mostly occurs following a disruption of the medial patellofemoral ligament (MPFL), and can occur during both contact and non-contact activities. The recurrence rate following a first-time dislocation can be as high as 15-60% (Hayat et al, 2020).
Have you ever hurt your ankle playing sport and are struggling to walk? Your walking is not improving, and it feels different to a normal ankle sprain? Maybe you have a fracture? Or is it a syndesmosis injury?
