Physiotherapy treatment for sports injury

In acute stage the injuries, the physiotherapy starts gentle active assisted exercises. Passive stretching is also recommended within the limits of pain to improve movement and reduce pain. As the pain reduces, active exercises and muscle-strengthening exercises are started.

Electrical stimulation, ultrasound, Shockwave therapy, Laser therapy and Heat are also used to decrease the pain and inflammation. Cyriax 1978 suggest treatment by transverse friction massages for the tendon and ligamentous injury.

Acupuncture is also considered as an active treatment for reducing pain and inflammation.

Your physiotherapist may also use suction cupping, Hawk or Graston Technique for breaking the scar tissue and massage around the injured area.

K taping of the injured area is also one of the most considered methods of treating an acute injury.

Active release techniques (ART) are also helpful in treating sports injuries.

For the lower body injury the goals are to mobilize the ankle and the foot to re-educate the walking to develop running and jumping skills to limit any swelling to stimulate the patient’s response.

A most important aspect of treatment is that of continuous assessment on Fitness testing basing the progression of treatment on the findings. The treatment plan consists of isometric quadriceps exercises, progressing rapidly weight-bearing walking too quickly towards full weight-bearing with emphasis on correct gait. 

A different approach is taken towards a pain due to sensitive nervous system.
