Acute and Recovery Phase Physiotherapy
The Acute Phase
The early stages of an injury is known as the acute phase. This phase consists of pain, swelling, redness and loss of function to the area. Immediately post-injury is when you should seek the help of a Physiotherapist. A physiotherapist will assist in controlling the inflammation of the joint and use techniques to reduce pain.
Physiotherapists provide a diagnosis to the injury, as well as the appropriate manual therapy needed. We will also recommend if a temporary mobility aid will be necessary.
Physiotherapists assess, treat, educate and manage all musculoskeletal injuries. We focus on hands-on treatment, exercise prescription and self-management techniques that are tailored to your needs. With an evidence-based approach, treatments used will maximize your return to work or sport or your chosen lifestyle activity.
