After any injury, inflammation will occur due to tissue damage. Inflammation is your body’s defence response and is essential for healing and reconstruction of tissues. However, if the inflammatory process is not well controlled, the injured area may become red, hot, swollen and very painful. Physiotherapy therefore aims to keep the inflammation under control to minimise your pain but also to optimise the healing and reconstruction phases to prevent the tissues from causing problems or being reinjured later on. The cause of the injury will also be assessed to identify whether there are any other muscle imbalance or weakness which could predispose you to an injury or joint pain.
Examples of the most common injuries treated:
Ligament sprains and tears, Muscle tears, Meniscus injuries, Labral tears, Fractures, Scar formation of the skin.
