The different types of pain and injuries that can benefit from physiotherapy

Ankle sprain - This is a very common type of sports and general injury. Apart from the initial management of Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation (RICE), it crucial that the rehabilitation process be started without delay. This includes:

  • Restoration of full range of motion
  • Functional exercises
  • Poprioception
  • Muscle conditioning

Low back Pain - This is another increasingly common condition, not just in athletes, but in the general population too. Careful assessment is required to detect any abnormalities and the treatment plan can include:

  • Soft tissue & spinal mobilization
  • Taping and heat therapy
  • Stretching & core stabilisation exercises

Neck Pain - In most instances, neck pain is caused by postural issues or acute injuries, vertebral joints dysfunction or cervical disc diseases. The treatment is specifically aimed at restoring movement & function, reducing pressure & preventing recurrence. This is done with the use of various modalities including:

  • Manual therapy applied to the joints, neural structures and muscles
  • Postural correction & advice along with education
  • Therapeutic exercises

If you are facing any of these above mentioned issues, physiotherapy can be highly beneficial for you. Contact Citydoc Medical Centre for an appointment today.
