Shoulder injuries vary according to patient demographics, as well as the type of sport the patient is engaged in. With increased sports participation among multiple age groups in Singapore, there is also a greater focus on early diagnosis, treatment, and return to play. This talk aims to provide the listener with information on initial assessment and management of patients who present with sports related shoulder and elbow injuries. The talk also will briefly discuss the surgical options for common conditions, as patients often enquire about these options when consulting their primary care physicians.
Extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) is a non-invasive procedure used to treat various musculoskeletal conditions including tendinopathies, fasciopathies, and soft tissue conditions ranging from acute to chronic. It utilises shockwaves to stimulate tissue regeneration and alleviate pain. This dual mechanism helps in restoring functionality and promoting healing in conditions where conventional treatments may fall short. This presentation aims to provide a comprehensive overview of ESWT, its mechanisms, and the evidence supporting its efficacy.
Ankle sprains are one of the most common sports injuries and are commonly seen in both the primary care and emergency settings. Although majority of them can be managed non-operatively with satisfactory outcomes, a systematic evaluation and correct diagnosis is key at the time of initial evaluation for provision of relevant treatment. This is to mitigate the long-term detrimental consequences such as chronic recurrent ankle instability, arthritic progression, and long-term disability and functional impairment. Hence, this talk aims to educate on the ankle ligament complex anatomy and shed some light on a comprehensive manner of evaluation and management options including when to refer and the initial treatment options
