  • PT USHA INCIDENT UNFORTUNATE: SURESH KALMADI.

    New Delhi: The humiliation of legendary athlete PT Usha over accommodation for her during the 49th National Open Athletics Championships in Bhopal had big sounding repercussions and a blame game has started on who is responsible for it. Indian Olympic Association (IOA) chief Suresh Kalmadi too came out to address the controversy and said that it was an incident that should have never happened.

    He spoke to a news channel about the unfortunate incident and said, “PT Usha is one of the greatest athletes India has ever produced. And looking after her is our prime responsibility and I would like to say that in no uncertain terms. Whatever happened in Bhopal is very unfortunate.”

    “She had come with a team and she wanted to stay with the team. She went to the Sports Authority of India hostel which she did not like and the organisation went and apologised to her and put her in a hotel. I told them that these things should not have happened and I´m sure in future will not be repeated by anybody.”

    Kalmadi also stressed that the authorities always tried their best to give the athletes their due and added, “These things do not happen generally but we will issue stern warnings that these things should not happen at all, and we will definitely insure that these things are looked after very well. No doubts about that.”

    The issue of cricketers receiving the best of treatment in this country was also raised and Suresh Kalmadi agreed to the reality and said that it was the reason why Commonwealth gave his this chance of promoting of Olympic sports.

  • TACKLING INJURIES IN SPORTS

    The best way to deal with sports injuries is to prevent them. Prevention includes knowing the rules of the game one is playing, using the proper equipment and playing safe. Sports injuries typically occur while participating in organised sports, competitions, training sessions, or organised fitness activities. These injuries may occur for a variety of reasons, including improper training, lack of appropriate footwear or safety equipment. Sports activities can result in injuries - some minor, some serious, and still others resulting in lifelong medical problems.

    Acute traumatic injury

    Acute traumatic injuries usually involve a single blow from a single application of force. These injuries include the following:

    * A fracture -a crack, break, or shattering of a bone
    * A bruise - caused by a direct blow, which may cause swelling and bleeding in muscles and other body tissues
    * a strain -a stretch or tear of a muscle or tendon, the tough and narrow end of a muscle that connects it to a bone
    * A sprain - a stretch or tear of a ligament, the tissue that supports and strengthens joints by connecting bones and cartilage


    Overuse or chronic injury:

    Chronic injuries are those that happen over a period of time. Chronic injuries are usually the result of repetitive training, 

    such as running, overhand throwing, or servinga ball in tennis. These include:
    Stress fractures - tiny cracks in the bone´s surface often caused by repetitive overloading (such as in the feet of a  basketball player who is continuously jumping on the court)

    * Tendinitis- inflammation of the tendon caused by repetitive stretching
    * Bursitis-an inflammation of the bursa, which is a small sac, in the shoulder, elbow, or knee.

    Head injuries

    Include concussions, contusions, fractures, and haematomas. A concussion is a violent jarring or shock to the head that causes a temporary jolt to the brain. If severe enough, or recurrent, concussions can cause brain damage. A haematoma is a bleeding or pooling of blood between the tissue layers covering the brain or inside the brain. All of these injuries can be caused by impact to the head from a fall, forceful shaking of the head, a blow to the head, or whiplash. Whiplash is an injury to the neck caused by an abrupt jerking motion of the head. It is necessary to always wear helmets for contact sports and when doing activities like biking to prevent head injuries.

    Neck injuries

    Neck injuries are among the most dangerous. One can hurt the neck through a sudden traumatic injury in sports like mountain climbing, skydiving, horseback riding, gymnastics, diving, or boxing. Neck injuries include strains, fractures, contusions and sprains. Most neck injuries are caused by impact to the head or neck sustained during a fall or a blow.

    The neck can also be injured a little at a time. Too much strain on the neck can cause increasing pain, sometimes only on one side of the neck. If the injury is severe and there is a chance that the neck might be injured, it is very important to keep the injured person still with their head held straight while someone calls for emergency medical help.

    Other injuries

    Foot injuries can include ligament strains, stress fractures, heel bruises, and bursitis. Because one´s feet support all of the weight and must absorb a lot of force over and over again, they can be particularly susceptible to injury.

    Sex Organs: When it comes to injuries to the sex organs, boys and men usually suffer more trauma than girls because the penis and testicles are outside the body and lack natural protection during contact sports. They should always wear athletic supporters, or in some sports a cup, to protect the genitals from serious injury. Injuries to the uterus or ovaries are rare, but breast injuries are common complaints among girls. As the breasts develop, they can often be sore, and a blow from a softball or a jab from an elbow, can be painful. Girls should wear supportive sports bras while playing sports or exercising.

    Back injuries include sprains, fractures, contusions, and strains and are caused by twists or overexertion of back muscles during bending or lifting movements. These injuries can occur in contact sports like football, weight lifting, skating, gymnastics, dancing, and basketball.
    Hand injuries include fractures, dislocations, and sprains and often occur in contact sports such as football, hockey etc. 

    Hand injuries can result from a fall that forces the hand or fingers backward, a forceful impact to the hands, or a direct blow.

    If the pain progressively increases with activity and causes any limping or loss of range of motion, one needs to see a doctor as soon as possible. The most important thing to do when one suspects injury is to stop doing whatever sport has caused the injury right away and see a doctor. For more severe or complicated injuries, it may be best to see a doctor who specialises in sports medicine. Once the doctor knows the full extent of the injury, he will start with conservative treatment techniques such as rest and ice to help decrease swelling. Pain relief and anti-inflammatory medicines such as ibuprofen may be prescribed. Splints, casts, and surgery also may be needed, depending on the injury. The doctor may recommend not to play while the injury heals and to use protective devices.

    Preventing Cricket Injuries: Overall, cricket injuries are mostly sprains, fractures and bruising. Adult cricketers most often sustain injuries to the upper limbs, followed by the lower limbs and the head. A direct blow from the ball during delivery or fielding, mostly to the face, fingers and hand, is the most common cause of injury and results in fractures and bruising. 

    Overuse injuries are also common and are most often associated with back injuries to fast bowlers, particularly at the elite level and in young cricketers.

    Safety Tips:

    * Good preparation is important
    * Warm up and stretch before the day´s cricket
    * Bowlers, particularly fast bowlers, should warm up before their bowling session
    * Good technique and practices will help prevent injury
    * Coaches should undergo regular re-accreditation and education updates to ensure they have the latest information about playing techniques
    * Wear appropriate safety equipment, wear body padding when batting including gloves, leg pads, boxes and forearm guards
    * When batting, wicket keeping or fielding in close wear a cricket helmet with a faceguard
    * Wear protective gear during informal play as well as competition
    * Seek professional advice on appropriate cricket shoes
    * Modify rules for children
    * Drink adequate water during the day´s play.
