Rattle Ya Bones this Halloween!

🎃🦴 #RattleYaBones this Halloween! 🦴👻

Let’s scare away the Top 5 Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSDs) that tend to haunt male athletes. These spooky injuries can turn your favourite sports into a nightmare. 😱

🪢 Sprains and Strains: Among the most prevalent injuries, these affect ligaments (sprains) and muscles or tendons (strains). Examples include ankle sprains and hamstring strains, commonly occurring during athletic activities that involve sudden movements, twists, or impacts.

💪 Tendonitis: Inflammation of tendons due to repetitive movements or overuse. Common examples include Achilles tendonitis (common in runners) and tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis), often seen in tennis players or golfers.

🦵 Knee Injuries: Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears and meniscus (cartilage) tears are prevalent, especially in sports that involve quick changes in direction or high-impact movements, like soccer, basketball, or skiing.

🍖 Muscle Tears: Ruptures or tears in muscles due to sudden acceleration, deceleration, or direct impact. Examples include hamstring tears (frequent in sprinters and soccer players) and quadriceps tears (common in athletes involved in explosive movements).

🩻 Stress Fractures: Tiny cracks in bones resulting from repetitive stress, often found in weight-bearing bones like the shin or foot due to high-impact activities such as running or jumping.

Manual therapy techniques such as myofascial release, soft tissue release, joint mobilisations, and deep tissue massage have all been shown to aid in rehabilitation. These techniques can help ease sprains, strains, and tendonitis by reducing tension and inflammation, improve joint function and reduce stiffness during ACL and meniscus tear recovery, and promote healing while minimising scar tissue formation in muscle tears.
