Returning to play after injury

MBST for sporting injuries

Players who experience a sporting injury are understandably keen to get back to play as soon as possible. However, depending upon the severity of the injury, it can take months to fully heal.

Returning to play too early can cause further damage, resulting in an even longer stint away from sport. However, there are options to help speed up recovery. Here, you will discover more about the different types of sporting injuries, and how MBST could help you return to play after an injury.

What are common sporting injuries?

Sports of all kinds pose a risk of injury. Whether taking part in competitions or simply training, players can suffer injuries to their tendons, muscles, and ligaments. Sprains and strains are especially common, as are fractures and bruises. While some injuries are minor, others can see players out of action for months, if not years. Some of the most common sports injuries players experience include…

Muscle Injuries – During sport, the muscles in the body can easily get damaged through external impact or overuse. While many muscle injuries can be minor, in some cases the muscle could tear. These types of injuries are graded from Stage 1 to Stage 4.

In stages 1 and 2, less than 5% of the fibres have been damaged. With stage 3 injuries, more than 5% of the fibres are damaged, but the muscle remains intact. For stage 4 injuries, there has been a total rupture of the muscle, and functionality is completely lost.

Tendon and ligament injuries – Your tendons connect your bones and muscles, and they can be slow to regenerate if they suffer a micro rupture. These types of injuries tend to occur due to uneven stress distribution or over-use. There will be limited use of the affected limb, and it will cause localised pain.

The ligaments in the body stabilise the joints and connect the bones together. Like tendons, they are slow to regenerate and often do not heal fully after they have been damaged. If either the tendons or the ligaments rupture, surgical treatment will usually be required.

These are some of the main injury’s players can experience that could lead to lengthy time away from sport. However, treatments are available and MBST is one option to consider.

How can MBST help?

Magnetic Resonance Therapy (MBST) helps to heal the body at a molecular level. It works by increasing the metabolism, triggering the body’s repair system. It targets your own electromagnetic energy to the damaged tissue, causing it to start regenerating.

Many athletes who have used MBST have reported returning to sport much quicker than was originally prognosticated. To find out if this revolutionary treatment could help to treat your sporting injury quickly, book a consultation with MBST. The first step is to have a comprehensive examination which will determine if you are likely to benefit from MBST
