In the instance of an acute injury physiotherapy can help by minimising tissue damage and provide for a quicker return to active sport and active living. Clear and simple expert advice on your injury in the first few days can save you time, reduce frustration and lead to a better outcome for the healing tissue.
If you have had an acute onset of pain it is possible that there may have been minor soft tissue injury that has occurred and is contributing to your discomfort. Once soft tissue damage has occurred there is a well-recognised healing process. Soft tissue healing can take up 6-12 weeks. With the right advice and approach it is found that for the majority should experience a full recovery within 12 weeks. An early well-informed opinion by any of our Chartered Physiotherapists can help you to return faster to the things that matter. Chronic or reoccurring injuries can be prevented with the correct advice. Our physiotherapists are excellent in identifying casual factors that may have ‘primed’ for the injury to occur. Our physiotherapists are experts in analysing risk factors of injuries and advising on prevention methods on re occurrence of any such injuries. This is vital to ensure a quick return to sport and to prevent a similar injury in the future.
