The most important aspect of treating sport injuries is getting the correct diagnosis. A thorough assessment of the tissues injured needs to be made based on the mechanism of injury, the symptoms and the physical presentation.
Understanding the time frame for healing, the factors that can assist / hinder recovery can be made accurately by a sports physiotherapist. A sports physiotherapist can devise comprehensive exercises and management plans to ensure a smooth return back to sport and minimise the risk of recurrence.
Often there may not be a clear cause of injury, and biomechanical factors and training influences may need to be examined.
