The signs and symptoms of an acute injury are sudden, intense pain, swelling, extreme tenderness, and the inability to move a joint or experience bone dislocation fully. Acute injuries happen suddenly while engaging in an activity.
Any sports injury should be treated in stages using RICE therapy. Rest: Don’t move large objects or pressure an injured area. “Ice therapy” is the application of an ice bag to an injured area to lessen pain and swelling. Compression entails wrapping the injured area in an elastic bandage, and Elevation involves placing a pillow on top of the injured area to prevent fluid buildup.
When a wound is severe, connective tissue tears need to be fixed, or a dislocated joint causes deformity and disability, surgery is necessary. Most sports-related injuries don’t require surgery.
