Sprain injuries in other body parts

Achilles tendinitis
- Achilles tendinitis is an inflammation of the Achilles tendon, sometimes called the heel cord, which connects the calf muscles to the heel bone.
anterior cruciate ligament
- The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is a band of fibrous tissue that provides support to the knee joint by connecting bones or cartilages. It is one of the four important ligaments of the knee. The anterior cruciate ligament can be injured by tearing. Its fibres can be torn, or a tear can develop where the ligament attaches to the femur, which is the thighbone, or to the tibia, which is the lower leg bone.
- Discitis is the infection or inflammation of the disc between 2 vertebrae.
knee arthroscopy
medial collateral ligament (MCL) injury
- A medial collateral ligament (MCL) injury involves some degree of stretching of the main ligament on the inside of the knee.
neck stiffness
- A stiff neck refers to a tightness or rigidity in the muscles supporting the neck. Nuchal rigidity refers to a stiffness that prevents bending of the neck and limits movement of the neck. Neck stiffness can be simply a mild discomfort and slight problem in moving the neck. Or it can be severe pain and the inability to move or bend the neck at all.
pain medications
Osgood-Schlatter disease and Sever disease
- Osgood-Schlatter disease is a condition in children that causes pain just below the knee. Sever disease is a condition in children that results in pain at the back of the heel.
- Physiotherapy is a group of services provided by a health care professional. It helps preserve, develop, and restore physical function. It can help restore physical health that has been lost to injury, disease, or other causes. The goals are to relieve pain and promote fitness and health.
painful foot joints
posterior cruciate ligament injury
- This type of injury results from the tearing of the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) in its fibres or at its attachment to the femur or tibia.
nonspecific back pain
rotator cuff repair
- The rotator cuff is made of four muscles in the shoulder and upper arm. The muscles are attached to bones by tough cords called tendons. These muscles help the shoulder joint to function. They also provide stability to the shoulder joint. A rotator cuff repair is a surgical procedure to fix a tear in a rotator cuff. The tear is usually located in the tendon, but sometimes it also involves one of the muscles.
rotator cuff tendinitis
- Rotator cuff tendinitis is an inflammation of the tendons of the shoulder. A tendon is a fibrous band that connects muscles to bones.

sports safety for adults
- Sports safety in adults requires overall body conditioning. Conditioning of specific muscles is needed to prevent injury in specific sports.
sports safety for children
- Sports safety for children includes guidelines for preventing injury to any child participating in a sport.
sprains, first aid
- A sprain is an injury that affects a ligament, a muscle, or a tendon. The sprain occurs when the ligament, muscle or tendon is extended beyond a greater range than normal for a particular joint. Ligaments are most often involved in sprain injuries.
axillary nerve dysfunction
- Axillary nerve dysfunction is the lack of normal electrical transmission through the axillary nerve, which activates the shoulder muscles.
sports safety for summer
- Sports safety for summer focuses on guidelines for playing it safe in summertime heat and humidity.
- A strain refers to the stretching or tearing of a muscle as a result of excessive pulling during physical activity.
- Tendonitis is inflammation of a tendon. A tendon is a cord or band that connects a muscle to a bone.
water aerobics
- Water aerobics are exercises in which the basic principles of aerobics are transferred to water. Music sets the speed and rhythm of exercise movements. The heart rate is monitored before, during, and after exercise. The aerobic cycle of warm up, peak, maintain, taper, and cool down is just as important in the water.
