Transcript of Lesson 3 - Unit 18: Sports Injuries

Unit 18: Sports Injuries
Write down in your exercise book, what you already know about treating sports injuries?

- What types of sports cause specific injuries?
- Do you know anything about hard and soft tissue injuries?
- Preventative measures in place?
Learning Objective
3. Know how to apply methods of treating sports injuries


- Describe first aid and common treatments used for four different types of sports injury (P5)
What I already know?
Types of sporting injuries:
(Hard and soft tissue)
- Collisions with other performers or objects, and twists or turns beyond the body's capabilities are common causes of acute injury.

Hard tissue injuries - bones, joints and cartilage
A hard tissue injury is damage to bone tissue.
A hard tissue injury is also called a "fracture" and is defined as a "loss of continuity in the substance of a bone".
Hard tissue injuries, also known as "fractures" are commonly referred to as "broken bones", or perhaps "cracked bones" in the case of stress fractures and hairline fractures.

How do these occur?
Soft tissue injuries - muscles, tendons, ligaments, internal organs and skin.
A soft tissue injury (STI) is the damage of muscles, ligaments and tendons throughout the body. Common soft tissue injuries usually occur from a sprain, strain, a one off blow resulting in a contusion or overuse of a particular part of the body.
SPLAT!
HARD OR SOFT TISSUE DAMAGE? YOU DECIDE!
Research using the internet or a BTEC book the following types of hard and soft sports injuries and write them in your exercise book:

All types of fractures
Dislocation
Haematoma
Sprain and strains
Tendonitis
Blister
OPEN FRACTURE
HAEMATOMA (BLEEDING)
DISLOCATION
ABRASION
TENNIS ELBOW
SHIN SPLINTS
IMPACTED FRACTURE
FRICTION BURN
TASK!
Thought:
In the different types of fractures, which are more likely to produce an open fracture and why?
Haematoma: Intermuscular and Intramuscular
Define each and relate to a sporting example
STRETCH:
Produce a poster for each definition.
What is a dislocation?
Sprains and Strains
A
sprain
is damage to ligaments (stretch and tear).
A
strain
is damage to muscle or tendon.
Sprains can be categorised into first, second or third degree injuries.
Hard tissue damage
Fractures
Open and closed fractures.
Complete and incomplete fractures.
Greenstick fractures.
Transverse fractures.
Impacted fracture.
Oblique fracture.
Stress fractures
Discuss with your partner, what is a stress fracture?

Define the causes of a stress fracture?
Soft tissue damage
Questions:

Do you know the difference?

Which is more severe?

What are strains graded in?
Task - Research other soft tissue injuries and provide a definition (P5)
Concussion
Tendonitis
Tendon Rupture
Blister
Cramp
Tennis Elbow
Back pain
Working in pairs or groups, discuss what injuries may occur in the following sports:

Hockey
Football
Boxing
Netball
Cricket
Complete the extension activity in the BTEC textbook:

Complete the table suggesting strategies to decrease the risk of such injuries taking place.
Protective Equipment
Rules and Regulations
Possible future schemes
Cartilage Injuries
Cartilage acts as a ossification (bone growth) and minimises the the impact of internal skeletal forces during sports.
Cartilage absorbs the impact of bones whilst reducing friction.
Acute trauma could also cause damage to cartilage e.g. dislocation.
