“IT’S ABOUT THE KNEE AND ANKLE”
Expressing that doing sports is a basic need for a healthy and happy life, Telatar said, “We can face many types of injuries while doing sports. Since the most common sportive activity in our country is football, the most common sports injuries we encounter are related to the knee and ankle.
“IMPORTANT SPORTS INJURY”
Emphasizing that anterior cruciate ligament injuries and meniscus tears in the knee can lead to permanent disability if not treated, Telatar said, “Bone fractures and Achilles tendon ruptures in the ankle are important sports injuries that we frequently encounter. Fortunately, there are effective treatments for all these injuries. Although it takes some time to recover, we should care about our joint health and provide the necessary treatments without wasting time in order to return to sports, increase our life comfort and lead a more active life.
