One of the most common injuries basketball players suffer are deep thigh (contusion) injuries.
This type of injury often occurs when the thigh muscles are accidentally directly hit by an elbow or knee, or can be caused through a sudden movement through sprinting or jumping.
Depending on the severity of the thigh injury, recovery can be expected to take about 4-8 weeks.
When it comes to treating a deep thigh injury, just like with many other common injuries in sports, it is recommended to promptly perform the R.I.C.E (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation) protocol before returning to full activity.
However, following treatment with R.I.C.E, physiotherapy with a trained specialist in conjunction with laser therapy can help to restore the thigh back to full strength and flexibility.
Laser therapy has become one of the most popular methods of muscle tissue recovery from sports injuries for the modern pro and non-pro athlete. There’s no question about it: deep thigh injuries can be quite painful. Laser therapy helps to reduce this pain and inflammation through a process refereed to as photobiomodulation, where a very beneficial boost in cellular metabolism is achieved.
