Sport Injuries - SALTAPS
Transcript of Sport Injuries - SALTAPS

In this context, some aspects of the primary and secondary surveys can become unnecessary
In these cases, a more specific sports-related method is more relevant.
One such technique is performed - SALTAPS
top - observe the injury
sk - ask questions about the injury
ook - for specific signs and indicators of injury
ouch - palpate the area gently to identify painful areas and swelling
ctive movement - athlete moves the injured part independently
assive movement - you move the injured part for the athlete
trength testing - can pressure be placed on the injury
With increasingly serious injuries, it is important to cease the SALTAPS process at an appropriate stage.
The aim of the SALTAPS process is to make an accurate assessment of the type, location and severity of an injury.
For acute but less severe soft tissue injuries, use the PRICED procedure.
The purpose of this treatment is to reduce swelling, prevent further damage and ease pain.
rotect - protect the person and the injured area to minimise further damage.
est - prevents further damage
ce - reduces swelling and promotes healing
ompression - acts as support and prevents swelling
levation - reduces blood flow to the area which reduces swelling
iagnosis - seek professional help
