Here are some photos of basketball injuries taken by the press (Lim Chee Sen) during the National Basketball league 2010. Most of the tournament was covered by St John's Ambulance or Red Crescent volunteers with ambulances on standby for emergencies.
Another player twisted his ankle after accidentally tripping over another player's foot. He was back to play the semifinals after vigorous physiotherapy and rehabilitation exercises.
This player suffered from a scalp laceration after jumping over another player and suffered from a scalp laceration from the elbow of the player. He had a 2.5 cm scalp laceration which had to be sutured at a local hospital. The coach ensured that untrained personnel were not allowed to intervene until the doctor arrived to ensure that there were no cervical spine (neck) injuries.
Laceration wounds seen just adjacent to the eyebrows due to accidental elbow defensive manouvre. Apply pressure to the wound immediately with sterile gauze to control bleeding of the wound. Once the wound stops bleeding apply an adhesive plaster to hold the edges of the laceration and send the player to the doctor.
Player caught in an awkward position during a challenge by opposing player. He suffered from a lateral ligament complex ankle sprain and was duly iced to prevent swelling and reduce pain. Keep ankle elevated while icing it and ensure that he is examined by his team doctor as soon as possible.

An elite Muay Thai fighter came with a swollen and painful thumb after hurting his thumb when he accidentally hit the side the head of his opponent during a professional bout. Treated it aggressively with RICE therapy, electrotherapy and rehabilitation exercises and he returned to fight again in 2 weeks duration. He had a protective taping for the fight and managed well.
Some photos from the national road race competition from the 27th April 2010 to the 1st May 2010 from Kuala Selangor to Kuala Perlis. Thanks to a relatively good weather, skillful riding, good recovery preparations and well coordinated road safety by marshalls, commissaires and police, we had a safe journey during the competition. There were no serious injuries.
A junior rubgy player came after competition with a painful Rt 5th finger. He had pain at the side of the Metacarpo-phalangeal joint after feeling a sharp pain and loss of power after 'losing grip' of an opponent's shirt.
He suffered from torn collateral ligament and would benefit from buddy taping or splinting over the next 4 to 6 weeks.
A guitarist came with complaints of left wrist pain and swelling a few days ago. She had been training vigourously and held the 'chords' with the fingers (left hand) and subsequently did her biceps and triceps curls using dumbbells. Soon after the episode she started having pain and noticed 'fullness' in the back (dorsum) of her wrist.
She was advised to do RICE treatment and apply the anti-inflammatory gel. She was also treated with Ultrasound therapy and isometric wrist exercises. After a few days, the symptoms subsided and she was given a step-by-step exercise program to prevent recurrence.
