Sports Injuries and Elastic Braces

The principles of sport medicine can be applied to the treatment of many musculoskeletal injuries which resemble sports injuries but have different causes. For example, tenis elbow can be caused by carrying a suitcase, turning a secrew or opening a stuck door and runner’s knee can be caused by excessive inward rolling of the foot (pronation) while walking.

Sports injuries are caused by faulty training methods, structural abnormalities that stress certain parts of the body more than others and weakness of muscles, tendons and ligaments. Many of these injuries are caused by chronic wear and tear which results from repetetive motion stressing susceptible tissue.

The most common cause of muscle and joint injuries is faulty training methods: the exerciser doesn’t allow for adequate recovery after a workout or doesn’t stop exercising when pain develops.

Structural abnormalities can make a person susceptible to a sports injury by stressing parts of the body unevenly. For example, when the legs are unequal in length, greater force is placed on the hip and knee of the longer leg. In general, the pain disappears when the activity is stopped but recurs each time the same exercise intensity is reached.

Muscles, tendons and ligaments tear when subjected to forces greater than their inherent strength. For example, they may be injured if they are too weak or tight for the exercise being attempted.

Some authors have determined favorable effects of compression stockings, tights or sleeves on venous hemodynamics, arterial perfusion, deeper tissue oxygenation and muscle oscillation with corresponding effects on lactate kinetics and muscular soreness.

Prophylactic ankle braces generally reduce the risk of injury during sports and they are used in treatment of acute ankle sprain.

Many biomechanical studies have shown that prophylactic knee braces can provide 20 to 30 % greater resistance to a lateral blow, with the possibility that the anterior cruciate ligament is given even greater protection than the medial collateral ligament and wearing the elastic support help limit swelling.

In another scientific study, the elastic calf braces may provide positive changes in performance of repeated sprints and maximal isokinetic exercise. Also, they may reduce perceptions of pain. Elastic braces with dynamic gradient compression accelerate blood flow so it delivers more oxygen filled blood to active muscles to increase power and stamina. Moreover,  elastic braces decreases the stability and control of body, build up less lactic acid, manages the body temperature and moisture.
