Treatment for Sprains, Strains and Sports Injuries

Physiotherapy is an effective and non-invasive way to treat sports injuries, sprains and strains. This type of therapy can help you recover quickly from injuries and reduce your risk for further injury.

If you have sprained or strained a muscle, ligament or tendon while playing sports, during a fall or accident, book an appointment with a physiotherapist at The Back Clinic to relieve the pain, recover as quickly as possible and avoid further injury.

What Are Sprains, Strains and Sports Injuries? 

Sprains and strains are common sports injuries that result from overstretching or tearing of ligaments, tendons, and muscles. Sprains can vary in severity from a mild stretching of the ligaments to total disruption of the fibres. Strains are usually associated with damage to muscles or tendons. Sports injuries can also include fractures and dislocations. Physiotherapy can help reduce swelling, relieve pain, and aid in the healing process of sprains, strains, and sports injuries. 

How Physiotherapy Treats Injuries 

Physiotherapy can help improve range of motion and overall flexibility, reducing the risk of injury. Physiotherapists can use manual manipulations, stretching and strengthening exercises to gently move a joint without causing pain or further injury. Physiotherapists also use ultrasound and electrical stimulation to reduce swelling, relax tight muscles and promote circulation. 

Returning Stronger than Before

It is important to remember that physiotherapy should be considered as part of a team approach to the treatment of sports injuries. Collaboration with a doctor, physiotherapist and biokineticist is critical in any sports injury, especially when it comes to returning the body to its natural movement patterns. In some cases, sport-specific training and coaching can also provide valuable guidance for prevention and treatment. Ultimately, it’s important to find an injury management plan that addresses both your physical and mental well-being by involving all health professionals.
