Sport Injuries
- SALTAPS

When assessing sports injuries, it is likely that you would have observed the injury take place.

In these cases, a more specific sports-related method is more relevant.
One such technique is performed - SALTAPS
S

A
sk - ask questions about the injury
L
ook - for specific signs and indicators of injury
T
ouch - palpate the area gently to identify painful areas and swelling
A
ctive movement - athlete moves the injured part independently
P
assive movement - you move the injured part for the athlete
S
trength testing - can pressure be placed on the injury

The aim of the SALTAPS process is to make an accurate assessment of the type, location and severity of an injury.
PRICED

The purpose of this treatment is to reduce swelling, prevent further damage and ease pain.
P
rotect - protect the person and the injured area to minimise further damage.
R
