Unfortunately for all of us, injuries aren’t restricted to professional athletes. Injuries can occur anywhere in life. We’re all susceptible to injuries, and we don’t even need to be doing anything strenuous for them to occur. Naturally, certain activities put you more at risk of injury, but you can just as easily sprain an ankle while walking around the home. Fortunately, physiotherapy can help.
What is injury treatment?
Injury treatment is also known as rehabilitation. When you’ve suffered an injury, there are varying levels of severity. A physiotherapist can treat many types of injuries through techniques such as physiotherapy, dry needling, remedial massage, and tailoring safe exercises designed to rebuild normal mobility and functionality.
More severe injuries may require surgery, and physiotherapists also play a key role in post-surgery rehabilitation. In this scenario, your physiotherapist will receive the relevant information from your doctor or surgeon, which assists in developing a perfectly tailored rehab program for you.
For most effective recovery, injury treatment should occur as soon as possible after diagnosis. This increases the chance of a full recovery with no further issues.
