Samitivej Hospital Bangkok - Sports Injury Prevention

Posted: 30-May-2011

Even casual athletes can suffer a severe sports injury. The most common types of traumatic injury we see at Bangkok’s Samitivej Sukhumvit Hospital Sports and Orthopedic Center are the result of sports that require twisting of the muscles or joints, or which involve bursts of intense physical activity.

At Samitivej Hospital we stress sports injury prevention whenever possible. If you feel any pain in your joints, such as knee pain, or experience leg pain or leg swelling during an exercise, stop immediately. Many forms of sports injury can be avoided or minimized if detected early.

When a patient approaches the doctors at Bangkok’s Samitivej Sukhumvit Hospital Sports and Orthopedic Center with a sports injury, we first try to see if physical rehabilitation is possible through physical therapy alone. If surgery is necessary we opt for arthroscopic surgery, a minimally invasive surgery that results in less postoperative pain, a shorter hospital stay and a faster recovery.
