Corticosteroid injections speed up recovery from high ankle sprain among NFL players
Corticosteroid injections speed up recovery from high ankle sprain among NFL players (July 16, 2013 - Insidermedicine) From Houston - Corticosteroid injections may help NFL players return to play sooner following a high ankle sprain, according to research presented at the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine's Annual Meeting. Researchers studied 31 players from two NFL teams over an eight year period, 13 of whom received corticosteroid injections within 3 days of suffering a high ankle sprain. All of the players underwent a standard rehabilitation program. Results showed that those who received the corticosteroid injections returned to play 40% faster than those who did not receive the injections.
