Muscle / Joint Strains

Muscle and Joint strains are a very common form of injury, and can occur when the load placed on a tissue exceeds its capacity.  This can happen both both acutely and repetitively.

Recurring strains are also common if an initial injury is not rehabilitated correctly.  An underlying weakness or unconscious compensatory strategies may be present and can be a risk for a future strain.

Physiotherapy assists in restoring the strength and load capacity of the damaged tissues and addresses any underlying reasons as to why the tissue may have come under excessive load in the first place.  This strategy helps you to return to your sport or activity as effectively as possible while minimising risk of future occurrences.
