In the summer months various sporting events, such as Wimbledon and the Tour de France, along with the sunny weather usually serve to increase our outdoor activities with a drive to improve our fitness levels.

If we are not used to the increase in activity our bodies, particularly as we age, aren’t as flexible or forgiving as they are when we are younger. This leads to greater numbers of injuries and strains as we attempt to get our bodies to do things they are no longer used to and often without any warm up.

If you are about to launch yourself into a new fitness regime, please be aware of your body’s limitations, ensure you are thoroughly warmed up and ready for whatever exercise you are about to undertake and what to do if the unthinkable happens.

Strains or sprains are common injuries and they can also be the result of overuse of muscles and joints. Acute pain (sudden onset from injury, overuse or trauma), swelling, stiffness and bruising are symptomatic of strains and sprains and the best form of treatment for these is rest, ice, compression and elevation (RICE)

Rest the joint or muscle involved

Ice is the best way of reducing swelling and increasing mobility

Compression in the form of strapping such as a bandage or tubular webbing

Elevate the affected area to decrease swelling and to rest

Take pain killers such as paracetamol or ibuprofen to ease the pain.

If you suspect a more serious injury then go to your local A&E Department

Most injuries will heal within a few weeks and, in the vast majority of people, pain settles down as the body’s healing processes take effect or after medical intervention. However, in some individuals pain persists beyond the usual or expected time. Pain which persists for over three to six months is defined as chronic pain which, along with persistent pain for no obvious reason (pain is also our body’s way of warning us when an underlying disease process may be developing) should necessitate a visit to your GP who may feel it is appropriate to arrange an appointment with a physiotherapist or pain management consultant.

 

The Pain Management Team, at Baddow Hospital, specialises in the management and treatment of both chronic and acute pain.

 

We offer regular outpatient clinics with specialist pain management consultants in musculoskeletal, joint pain, back and neck pain plus nerve injury (pins and needles, burning pain and shooting pains), pelvic pain , sciatica and myofascial pain. They provide a number of interventional pain treatments including lumbar facet joint injections, peripheral nerve blocks, trigger joint injections and stellate ganglion blocks.

 

The service is aimed at reducing pain, addressing the emotional impact of pain and increasing mobility, activity and overall well-being.
