Team Sports Injuries
Whether contact or ‘non-contact’, team sports that involve rapid,
twisting movements produce the greatest number of knee injuries.
As with all knee injuries, it’s important to seek prompt, accurate
diagnosis from a specialist knee consultant to ensure the best
recovery speed and outcome. That’s true whether the knee injury
is a simple sprain, a complex multi-ligament injury or fracture.
Fail to recognise an ACL injury, for example, and it could lead to
further major injury once you resume twisting activities. Not
only could that compromise the long-term outcome and keep
you from the sport you love for longer; it could increase the
risk of premature arthritis.
