Case Study

soccer


Sport Event:

Rugby Match
April 2013
Brentwood, TN

Injury:

A player was injured during a tackle as he was body slammed to the ground. The injury caused the player to leave the game with severe, sharp pain from head to shoulder on one side.

Intervention:

The first aid attendant assigned to the game assessed the player’s injury and described it as a severe muscle strain, similar to one associated with a whiplash accident. He recommended 2 ibuprofen every 6 hours and cautioned that the player’s neck would be sore and stiff the next day. He estimated recovery would be slow and gradual over the next week.

Alternative Remedy:

Instead of ibuprofen, the player applied AminoActiv topical cream thoroughly from the top of his neck to the end of his shoulder. Next, he took 2 AminoActiv capsules just before bedtime.

Notable Results:

The next morning, nearly all pain was gone, and there was no neck stiffness.
