Study Notes

PRICE Method for Injuries

  • Protect yourself from injury by taking precautions such as wearing appropriate clothing and equipment, and warming up
  • Rest the injury to allow the body's natural healing mechanisms to work

R - Rest

  • Resting the injury is the first step in treating a sprain or strain
  • Allows the body's natural healing mechanisms to work to repair the damage caused to the soft tissue

I - Ice

  • Ice the injury to reduce swelling and pain
  • Use a bag of frozen peas wrapped in a tea towel or a reusable cold pack
  • Do not apply ice directly to the skin to avoid tissue damage

C - Compression

  • Compression helps to prevent excessive swelling by physically compressing the tissue around the injury
  • Use a bandage such as a cohesive bandage to achieve this

E - Elevation

  • Elevate the injury above the level of the body to reduce swelling
  • Excess fluids will flow back towards the body and not pool in the injured limb

Preventing Injuries

  • Regular strengthening and stretching exercises can help prevent injuries
  • Warming up and cooling down before and after exercise can also help prevent injuries
  • Stop exercising if you feel a sharp or sudden pain

Tendonitis

  • Tendonitis is a painful swelling and irritation of the tendons caused by overuse
  • Can happen when muscles are overworked or stretched too much or too quickly

Muscle Injuries

  • Strains and sprains are two of the most common injuries in sports
  • A strain occurs when a muscle or tendon overstretches
  • A sprain occurs when a ligament is overstretched or torn

Strain Symptoms

  • Pain
  • Swelling
  • Muscle spasms
  • Stiffness
  • Limited range of motion

Sprain Symptoms

  • Bruising
  • Pain
  • Unable to put weight on affected area
  • Skin discoloration
  • Stiffness

How Injuries Happen

  • Strains can occur when putting too much pressure on a muscle or pushing it too far
  • Sprains can occur when landing unevenly on a jump, pivoting in an activity, or overextending a muscle
  • Not warming up before exercise can increase the risk of muscle injuries

Working Your Muscles

  • Exercise can increase a muscle's endurance and strength
  • Different exercises can affect different aspects of muscle function
