Flexibility

Common Injuries

1

Neck Pain

General term indicating the pain around the neck, often aggravated by holding a prolonged bad posture e.g. working with your phone, driving, etc. The muscles around the neck may become tight and spasm. And found it difficult to move the head. 

 

2

De Quervain syndrome

Presented with pain and tenderness on the thumb side of the wrist and may radiate to the forearm. Sometimes the movement is restricted because of the tendon is thickened and swollen.

 

3

Lateral ankle sprain

May feel pain, swelling after rolling the ankle. It is because the ligaments on the outside of the foot are being tear. For high grading of ligament injury, the patient may not easily put the weight on the affected leg.

Neck Pain

 

Causes

Our neck supports the weight of the head, neck pain would be caused by the injury of muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints, nerves and even disease/cancer.

The risk factors including the followings

  • Bad posture causes the muscles to overuse and has a higher risk to strain the muscles.

  • Joint degeneration and herniated disc may cause nerve impingement.

  • Neck injury such as whiplash, a quick and sudden head movement from backward to forward. 

 

Treatment

If the neck pain is induced after prolonged working, it might be easier treated by soft tissue release (e.g. sports massage, stretching) and increased body awareness. It often needs a muscle strengthening program to maintain a better posture.

螢幕截圖 2022-11-19 下午1.07.56.png

Causes
 

The cause of the De Quervain syndrome is not established. But performing rapid repetitive activities involving pinching, grasping, pulling or pushing have been considered at increased risk.

 

Quick check

Finkeistein test, grasps and ulnar deviates the hand when the client holds the thumb within a fist. Positive sign: sharp pain occurs along the thumb side.

 

Treatment

Inflammation and pain management

Muscles release

Muscles strengthening 

Lateral ankle
sprain

Causes

Rolling the ankle inward would put too much stress on the ligaments of the lateral ankle, anterior tibiofibular ligament (ATFL), posterior tibiofibular ligament (PTFL) and calcaneofibular ligament (CFL). As a result, these ligaments may tear or even completely torn. Landing on another’s foot during basketball, volleyball is one of the common way to sprain the ankle

 

Quick check

If there is any pain/tenderness over the bony part of the ankle, including the lateral & medial malleolus, fifth metatarsal and navicular bone (Ottawa ankle rule) may be considered for X-ray check up. Ankle anterior drawer test is used to check the laxity of anterior tibiofibular ligament (ATFL).

 

Treatment

If the injury involving bone injury may need immobilization for weeks/months to let the bone recover by itself. Protection, Optimal Loading, Ice, Compression and Elevation (POLICE) is used to manage the acute injury. It is recommended to start the rehabilitation program as soon as possible when the pain is tolerated.
