TREATMENT LIST


If you have an acute sports injury, you will require immediate intervention to reduce the impact of injury on your body and surrounding tissues- this enables you to recover quicker. The treatments, according to how “chronic” (old) and “acute” (new) your injury is, may initially involve the PRICER regime and early strengthening advice.

Chronic injuries (those that have been around a while) that are not healing on there own require a different approach. Everyday work positions/ training regimes may be aggravating the problem or it could be something you’re not doing- i.e. specific strengthening. Aggravations could be repetitive strain at work, poor posture, altered biomechanics, poor footwear or bad training habits to name a few.

Back on Track will target your injury at each healing stage with specific exercise/stretching/manual therapy and electrotherapy interventions to help speed your recovery from injury and prevent from reoccurrence.
