Help your injury heal faster
Physiotherapy stimulates the body's natural healing process
Heal faster, minimize re-injury
Physiotherapy will help you get back to sport in the least amount of time and minimizes the chances of re-injury. Resting may make your pain go away but rehabilitating running injuries is not about making you pain free, it's about healing. When you injure a muscle or a ligament the body repairs itself by building up scar tissue around the injury site. It is like glue to keep a muscle tear together. Unfortunately, scar tissue is brittle and the injury site becomes prone to re-injury. Physiotherapists have knowledge of advanced techniques to minimize scar tissue formation. This will not only get you recovered from your injury faster, but will ensure that you minimize the chances of you becoming injured again.
Be active in your own recovery
It may surprise you that rest is not always the best way to treat injuries. Other health care professionals may tell you that you need to rest to recover from your injury and to stop your activity. Being fully sidelined is just not an option for many athletes. We think of "rest" is a relative concept. It may simply mean reducing your training volume. It may surprise you that, depending on your injury, your recovery plan may include training more often!
