Bilateral Distal Radius Epiphyseal Fracture in an Adolescent Weightlifter: Case report

Sports-related epiphyseal fractures are extremely rare. Bilateral distal radius epiphyseal fractures of an male adolescent weightlifter have been presented. Following bilateral closed reduction and sportive rehabilitation he successfully returned to the sport. Adolescent athletes need supervision of an experienced trainer to avoid injuries when performing resistance exercises. Sufficient intake of micronutrients and vitamins such as Vitamin D which are influencing bone metabolism should be provided along with proper muscle strengthening program.

Adolesan Halter Sporcusunda Bilateral Distal Radius Epifiz Fraktürü: Olgu Sunumu

Spor ile ilişkili epifizial fraktür vakaları oldukça nadir gözlenmektedir. Adolesan erkek halter sporcusunda gelişen bilateral radius distal epifizial fraktürü sunulmuştur. Sporcu bilateral kapalı redüksiyon ile sportif rehabilitasyon sonunda başarıyla spora dönmüştür. Adolesan sporcuların direnç egzersizleri sırasında yaralanmamları için deneyimli bir antrenörün gözetimine ihtiyaç duyulmaktadır. D vitamini gibi kemik metabolizmasını etkileyen mikrobesin öğelerinin yeterli alımı uygun kuvvetlendirme programlarına eşlik etmelidir.
