Frequently Asked Questions
How long will my injury take to recover?
This is probably our most common question. Whilst some injuries have clearer timelines such as fracture healing, most injuries are caused by multiple factors. For this reason to allow you to fully recover and reduce your risk of re-injury the rehabilitation process requires addressing most if not all of these causative modifiable factors. These commonly include strength, flexibility or movement features that require improvement to reduce your risk of re-injury.
I’m in pain, is physio right for me?
Our approach and the approach of most physios is to address the immediate issue of pain initially. This is commonly done by applying manual therapy (hands-on treatment) and inflammatory and pain management techniques (compression, heat, cold or water therapies, medical input). The second phase of the rehabilitation process is to address the modifiable factors that caused the injury. As described above there may be several of these factors, for this reason, the rehabilitation process may require time for your body to adapt and improve.
My pain is gone, do I still need to come in for rehab?
Pain management is the first important part of the management of any injury. The second is to remove or reduce the modifiable factors that caused the injury. For this reason, continuing an extensive rehabilitation process to address these factors such as improving, strength, power, endurance, flexibility and movement mechanics, allow patients to be in the best position to reduce the likelihood of re-injury.
