Treatment of Conditions

Read about our Physiotherapists’ approach to treating and investigating conditions and injuries in the articles below. These articles focus on damaging the underlying structure which can be muscle, bone, ligament, joint or nerves.

Muscle Conditions

A muscle strain is the stretching or tearing of muscle fibers. Most muscle strains happen for one of two reasons: either the muscle has been stretched beyond its limits or it has been forced to contract too strongly.

Joint Conditions

A joint is a connection of two bones. Everywhere in our body where two bones meet, a joint is formed. Damaging a joint can affect very important structures that support and hold the joint’s two connecting surfaces together.

Ligament Conditions

Ligaments are the connective tissues that help to hold your joints in the correct position and resist excessive movement – they attach bone to bone on either side of a joint to provide stability. Torn ligament pain depends on the injured structure within the joint.

Bone Conditions

We work with a network of orthopaedic surgeons and treat fractures before surgical intervention is necessary. Most fractures occur from direct trauma. In cases where you are unsure, we (physiotherapists) examine you to determine if a bone is cracked, broken or splintered

Nerve Conditions

Nerve pain (Neuralgia) is pain that is caused by damage or disease affecting the power cables of the body. These power cables control your body’s movement and communication. The pains comes from problems with signals from these power cables. Abnormal sensations like burning, pins & needles and numbness usually point to a nerve injury.
