What is Sports Injury Management?
Sports Injury Management is the management of a specific injury to allow an individual to return or continue their chosen sport without damaging or compromising their body. Managing a sports injury correctly is important and can help to minimize damage to a muscle, tendon, ligament, and joint, hence, increasing the chance of a full recovery.
What is involved?
A proper assessment of the injury from the podiatrist or physiotherapist will include: going through injury history, examination, investigation such as x-ray, ultrasound etc. Treatment can involve both acute (RICE) and active- physio, correction of bio-mechanics.
Education and prevention about the injury to the patient helps with a full recovery. Our podiatrists and physiotherapist work together for an effective management plan.
