Sports injuries vary in their specific treatment depending on the severity of the injury. Sports injury treatment usually involves removing the stress that caused the injury in the first place and also enhancing the function of other areas of the body to decrease the load on the damaged area. We offer pain relief and full recovery through a variety of exercise routines and relaxation techniques, including:
Long term treatment involving strapping, rubbing or taking anti-inflammatories is NOT recommended as these are merely band-aid solutions that cover-up the real problem, block the all important pain signals and may even cause more damage.
If you have suffered from a sports injury always consult with a doctor. For more information on general health and wellbeing or to book an appointment, contact us on (03) 9369 9766.
