Sports Injuries come in many shapes and sizes. From a simple muscle strain to fascia inflammation as well as muscle or tendon tear, ligament rupture and fracture.
Dealing with such injuries speedily is the key to return the individual back to the previous form as soon as possible and prevent scar tissue build-up. When an individual present with an injury, initially we address the site of the pain. Following that, we look at the whole body to rebalance any compensatory changes. We take into consideration the core stability and balance of the body. It is beneficial in observing how the body works as a whole. It is also essential to improve function and prevent further injuries.
On the case of ruptures and fractures, working with the patient after surgery is essential to return the surrounding muscles, tendons and ligaments to pre-injury health.
