Sports medicine is a branch of medicine that deals with the prevention and treatment of injuries related to sports and exercise. Active sportsmen often suffer from injuries caused when playing their particular sport, which can arise from constant wear and tear of the bones, muscles and ligaments, accidents, improper equipment and incorrect training practices.

Common sports injuries include:

  • Partial and complete dislocation of the shoulder: The muscles may spasm due to the dislocation, causing acute pain, and swelling, weakness, numbness and bruising may also be evident.
  • Elbow injuries: Overhand throwing causes extreme stress on the elbow and can lead to severe overuse injury. If the elbow is not allowed to heal and used repeatedly, even when the patient is in pain, serious issues can develop over the long term and the risk of dislocation is increased.
  • Mallet finger: When a tendon is damaged, a deformity may become apparent in the finger and the patient may not be able to straighten or extend the digit.
  • Knee injuries: Collateral Ligament injuries are common amongst football and soccer players.  As the knee is the largest and the most complex joint of the body, any sprain or more serious damage can cause long periods of being unable to play.

Other common sports injuries include:

  • Runners Knee
  • Shoulder Injury
  • Ankle sprain
  • Tennis elbow
  • Pulled Muscles
  • Lower back pain
  • Shin Splints
  • Groin Strain
  • Concussion
  • Achilles Tendinitis
  • Fractures & Dislocations
  • Loss of teeth
  • Broken nose
  • Chin injuries
  • Ligament rupture

    Dear Cocoona & Dr. Sanjay, Thank you so much for my Breast Augmentation procedure. Its 1 month on and I could not be happier with the result . All the way through from the initial consultation to the post op checkups, all your staff has been wonderful. The Dubai London Clinic for the surgery was fantastic. I would definitely recommend to others to Cocoona. Now if you could fix my handwriting skills please?

    I want to thank you for the great effort and expertise that you put in the hair transplant procedure which you did on me. You have fixed a big cut from a previous, very bad hair transplant in Jordan. It kept me very nervous and uncomfortable for very long time. Now, after conducting this surgery by you, I feel very very happy because the cut is almost gone. I like your personality and professionalism. I am really glad that I made a decision to come to Dubai and conduct the surgery at Cocoona Clinic Thank you very much.
