When to see a Sports Physio?
It is important to check with your physiotherapist or doctor as soon as possible. Mild injuries may need no further intervention, but this decision should be made by a professional.
Then we work on the sports field we try to assess the damage right there on the field, because in most cases the swelling can prevent us from testing and even doing scans on the injured area. This is so important because we can immediately determine what structures have been damaged by doing a few tests. When the swelling sets in it gets more difficult to pinpoint the site and structures that were injured. Then you have no choice but to wait until the swelling has subsided before the treatment can be targeted to a specific structure.
If you’ve got a pain that’s been developing over a few months while training and building up to an event, pains tend to break your pace when you’re pushing the outer limits. Each person’s case is unique and we know what elements to stress, test and scan. Compromised tissue can buckle, and it just needs that final push to end in catastrophic agony.
When you’re unsure about a injury, or if you’re medically cleared to put the tissue under stain, get it tested by a medical sports professional. Leaving it to chance has never been smart.
