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.

Why we use injury treatment

Injury treatment is a crucial step in getting you back doing what you love after an injury. Whether it’s a sprained ankle or an overly eager dog on a lead has caused you some shoulder damage, injuries can happen anywhere and everywhere. The sooner you get a diagnosis and start an injury treatment program, the sooner you can return to normal activities.

While all injuries are different and require unique treatment plans, some of the benefits of early injury treatment are:

  • Faster recovery from injury
  • Improved mobility and flexibility
  • Less risk of re-injury
  • Improved musculoskeletal health
  • Ongoing pain management

Like all of our rehabilitation services, our injury treatment is tailored to your individual needs and recovery plan.

What injuries can be treated?

Any injury involving muscles, joints, ligaments, tendons and tissue can be aided by physiotherapy. Injury treatment techniques are often employed in other areas too, such as addressing mobility challenges or other imbalances.

Injury treatment is all about identifying the best forms of therapy to help with your recovery, and the list of injuries that can be treated is almost endless. Most, however, fall into one of the following categories:

  • Recovery following surgery
  • Sporting injuries
  • Everyday injuries
  • Management of chronic illness and long term conditions
  • Spinal rehabilitation

At Auscare Physio, we work to identify the best treatment for your injuries. A tailored plan is developed just for you, incorporating all of the best techniques to aid in your recovery and prevent future injury.
