Sports injuries need to be managed differently to injuries incurred as a result of a sedentary lifestyle or joint degeneration.
After a sports injury:
- The first 72 hours are critical.
- Correct assessment, diagnosis and management can be the difference between recovery and permanent disability.
- Rehabilitation often needs to be aggressive. Our physiotherapists aim to get you back to sport as soon as possible, closely monitoring your progress, focusing on building your strength and stability.
- Preventing re-injury is imperative. Our skilled physiotherapists understand the physical movement required by your sport, setting functional goals and challenging your body's ability to withstand the forces that led to the initial injury.
