What to do in the first few days after an injury

Following an injury don't do anything that reproduces your pain for the initial two or three days. 

After that, you need to get it moving or other problems will develop.

Our physios can diagnose your problem and give you a clear indication of your best course of action.

Researchers have found that in most cases early physio intervention for acute soft tissue injuries is very beneficial  
Ice should be applied for the first two or three days following an injury such as ligament sprains, muscle tears or bruising.

Apply ice for 20 minutes every two to three hours for the first few days until the "heat" comes out of the injury.

Always place a cloth between the ice and your skin.
Avoid heat (and heat rubs) in the first 48 hours of injury. Heat will encourage bleeding at the site of the injury if used too early.

Apply heat with a heat pack for 20 minutes a few times a day to increase the blood flow and hasten your healing rate.

Heat will also help your muscles relax and ease your pain.

This brief guide is only for general information. If you are at all concerned about any aspect of your injury you should always seek medical advice. For free injury specific advice Contact us>>>
Knee injuries are amongst the most common problems we see and successfully treat

Knee pain can occur at any point around the knee joint and as the it's the main weight bearing joint as well as it being susceptible to traumatic injury it also is impacted by wear and tear. Some of the common causes of knee pain we successfully treat are:

• Meniscal tears
• Arthritis
• Muscle weakness
• Patella maltracking
• Ligament sprains / ruptures
• Muscle tears
• Fat pad inflammation

Acute knee injuries
Result from a sudden trauma, such as an awkward fall, collision or twist of the knee joint. Ligaments which stabilise or strengthen joints may be damaged. Over-stretching can cause tears to the ligament fibres, resulting in pain, swelling, loss of movement and giving way (instability)

Knee cartilages (or menisci) also provide stability to the knee joint. They are mostly torn during weight bearing activities that involve twisting and turning. A torn cartilage (or meniscus) results in pain, swelling and locking or catching of the joint.

Overuse injuries
Result from continuous activity or overload, such as running, jumping, cycling, weight training These start gradually and usually relate to a range of factors such as structural or biomechanical problems , training methods, footwear, technique or running style.

Early diagnosis and addressing the potential aggravating factors will result in a quicker recovery, and less pain. Conversely, if left untreated they often get progressively worse.

When will you be able to return to work or sport?
Our aim is for you to return to full activity as soon as possible. However, the reality is that it will largely depend on the severity of the injury and how you respond to the treatment. The pain and swelling associated with an acute injury subside much faster than the time it takes for the ligament and muscles to regain normal strength. Returning to work or sport too early may delay healing and prolong recovery.
