Common Injury in basketball(Expert Homeopathy: Dr. Anutosh Chakraborty)

The most common injury in playing basketball is a rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament of the knee. Athletes twisting, jumping, landing, turning, or stopping suddenly may cause a sprain or even break of the anterior cruciate ligament of the knee.

Once the cruciate ligament is injured, it often takes months of surgical treatment to heal.

Knee injuries are often caused by insufficient muscle strength on the back of the thigh.


The following 3 tips can help you exercise the back muscles of the thighs and prevent knee strains

The first move: raise the thigh. Stand upright, raise your left thigh, and your partner holds his thigh and press down to provide resistance, but don't use too much force, and still make sure that the thigh is lifted to a horizontal position. Continue for the opposite side after 3 times complete for the previous side.

The second measure: resistance movement of the legs. Lie on the ground with your legs close together, with your right foot resting on the heel of your left foot. Lean your left foot toward your thigh, and force your right foot in the opposite direction to hinder the movement of your left foot. Change feet after repeating three or four times. This action can exercise the back muscles of one thigh and the outer muscles of the other thigh at the same time.

The third measure: When jumping and landing, try to touch the ground with your front feet and bend your knees slightly. When landing, bend your knees and hips slightly as if you are sitting on a chair instead of standing upright.
