A damage to the musculoskeletal structures brought about by forces (i.e. acute or repetitive) during athletic performance.
Forces that act along the long axis of a structure which produces a crushing effect.
A pulling force that acts along the long axis of the structure which stretches the tissue.
Forces that act at opposite directions at different points causing one part of the structure to move away from another part of the structure.
Palpation – deformity, tenderness, indentation
Percussion – pain during tapping
Compression – distal to proximal
Distraction – apply traction
Cast? Internal Fixation? External Fixation?
Bone is pushed out of the joint capsule
Signs and symptoms are similar to fracture
Treat like fracture!!!
Anatomical – fingers
Rigid - wood
Soft - bandage
Both injuries are caused by abnormally high tensile forces which tears the tissue but damaged tissues are different . . .
Which is Which?!?
1st Degree (Mild) No loss of function
2nd Degree (Moderate) Unstable / Weak
3rd Degree (Severe) Loss of function
Dependent on the number of torn fibers . . .
What is inflammation? Is it bad?
P – protect
R – rest
I – ice
C – compression
E – elevation
Wound caused by teeth or mouth
Small puncture wounds with chemical injected
Types of Wounds
Interrupted or Subcuticular?
