Rotator Cuff Tear is the most common injury especially in sports like baseball or tennis or in some jobs like painting or cleaning windows.

The rotator cuff helps to lift and rotate the arm and stabilise the ball of the shoulder within joints.

Dr. Sonal Kapoor Physiotherapy Clinic – Tennis Elbow

Tennis elbow usually occurs when tendons in your elbow are overloaded by repetitive motion of the wrist and arm. This leads to pain and tenderness on the outside of the elbow. It’s not that the athletes are the only people who develop tennis elbow problems. People whose jobs feature the types of motion that leads to tennis elbow are plumbers, painters, carpenters and butchers.


The symptoms of Tennis elbow include pain and tenderness in the bony knob. It may cause most pain when you:

  • Raise your hand or straighten your wrist
  • Lift something
  • Make a first or grip an object, such as tennis racket open a door or shake hands


The main cause of tennis elbow is an overuse and muscle strain injury. The repetitive stress and motions to the tissue may result in a series of tiny tears in the tendons that attach the forearm muscles to the bony prominence at the outside of your elbow.

  • Knitting
  • Painting
  • Typing
  • Weight lifting
  • Tennis Squash


Golfer’s Elbow is a condition that causes pain where the tendons of your forearm muscles attach to the bony bump on the inside of your elbow. It is in some ways similar to tennis elbow which affects the outside at the lateral epicondyle. Rest and appropriate treatment can get back into the swing of things.


  • Pain and tenderness
  • Stiffness
  • Weakness
  • Number and tingling
  • Morning stiffness


Golfer’s Elbow is mainly caused by damage to the muscles and tendons that control your wrist and fingers. The damage is typically related to excess or repeated stress . Especially forceful wrist and finger motions. Improper lifting, throwing or hitting as well as too little warm-up or poor conditioning also can contribute to Golfer’s Elbow. The main activities that lead to Golfer’s elbow include:

  • Golf Racket sports throwing

Dr. Sonal Kapoor Physiotherapy Clinic - anterior cruciate ligament

Dr. Sonal Kapoor Physiotherapy Clinic – anterior cruciate ligament

One of the most common knee injuries is an anterior cruciate ligament sprain or tear. Athletes who participate in high demand sports like soccer, football, and basketball are more likely to injure their anterior cruciate ligaments.

If you have injured your anterior cruciate ligament, you may require surgery to regain full function of your knee. This will depend on several factors such as the severity of your injury and your activity level.


  • Large effusion / Haemarthrosis
  • Restricted movement
  •  Loss of extension
  • Widespread Tenderness
  • Most complete tears are extremely painful
  • Initially unable to continue the activity


The posterior cruciate ligament is located in the back of the knee. It is one of several ligaments that connect the femur (thighbone) to the tibia (shinbone). The posterior cruciate ligament keeps the tibia from moving backwards too far.

An injury to the posterior cruciate ligament requires a powerful force. A common cause of injury is a bent knee hitting a dashboard in a car accident or a football player falling on a knee that is bent. Incidence rate of PCL tear is about 1.8 times higher in males. PCL Tear occurs at times with meniscal and articular cartilage injury.


  • Most complete tears are extremely painful
  • Swelling (mild to severe)Knee PainWobbly sensation in the knee
  • Initially unable to continue the activity
  • Large effusion /haemarthrosis Widespread Tenderness Over time, PCL can lead to Osteoarthritis in the Knee
  • Trouble in walking


The sprain can occur when the ankle is forced beyond its normal range of motion. An ankle sprain is a common acute injury, with over 25,000 people in different countries it each day. It can affect adults and children, athletes and non-athletes and can occur as a result of playing vigorous sports or simply taking a bad step off a curb.

An ankle strain is an injury that occurs when ankle muscles and/or their connecting tendons are either stretched beyond their normal limits or torn outright. Strains may be acute or chronic. The muscular injury often occurs at the point where the muscle connects to a tendon.
