When Should You Commence Physiotherapy?
In severe cases, it is best to commence physiotherapy as soon as possible. However, it does vary from case to case. Your physiotherapist has some nifty tricks to improve your pain straight away.
If you are not sure what to do, please call us for advice. We’ll happily guide you in your time of need. Often a bit of reassurance is all that you will need.
How Much Treatment Will You Need?
After assessing your injury, your physiotherapist will discuss the injury severity with you and estimate the number of treatments needed. No two injuries are ever the same.
Your treatment will include techniques and exercises to regain your:
- joint, ligament and soft tissue mobility
- muscle strength, power and speed
- balance and proprioception
- prevention tips
- performance improvement.
What If You Delay Treatment?
Research tells us that symptoms lasting longer than three months become habitual and are much harder to solve. This can lead to nastier conditions. The sooner you get on top of your symptoms the better your outcome.
All injuries are different and little variations can make a big improvement to your recovery rate. Stiff joints or muscles may need some range of movement exercises. Other injuries may require massage or very specific strengthening exercises.
Seek professional guidance promptly for your best outcome.
