8.  How do I know if I tore my ACL?
Most knee injuries that occur in sports occur either from a direct blow to the knee, or when the knee is planted, foots get caught or stuck, and the knee is twisted.Signs of a significant knee injury include: swelling, the inability to bear weight, a feeling of instability, inability to fully flex or extend the knee, and pain. The anterior cruciate ligament is the main stabilizer of the knee. It is usually torn from a non-contact twisting injury to the knee, an audible pop may be heard, the knee swells, and may feel “unstable” or wobbly.

9.  What is the difference between a shoulder “separation” and a shoulder “dislocation”
A shoulder “dislocation” occurs when the ball (humeral head) pops out of the socket (glenoid). This is a significant injury that usually necessitates a trip to the emergency room to have the shoulder put back into place. This is usually then treated in a sling for up to 6 weeks and sometimes needs surgery if the ball continues to come out of the socket. For more info on shoulder dislocations.
A shoulder “separation” occurs at the level of the “AC JOINT” where the collarbone (clavicle) meets the acromion (shoulder blade). This usually happens from a direct blow to the shoulder where the clavicle “separates” from the acromion and the ligaments stretch out. Although painful, this is generally treated with a sling and ice for 1-2 weeks and rarely needs surgery.

10. How can I prevent heat related injuries?
Heat stroke and dehydration are fairly common, especially in the early part if the football or soccer season when the weather is warmer. Aggressive hydration with water is important before, during, and after play. Early signs of dehydration include severe cramping and muscle fatigue. It is important to notify the medical team of these symptoms during play in order to be treated quickly in an appropriate manner.
