Early Injury Treatment

Most injuries are a result of a sudden fall, sprain or a strain to a joint. Presenting with pain, redness, swelling, tenderness, limping, creaky joints, difficulty moving, stiffness, bruising and followed by weakness.

Early Acute injury and how to treat it safely.

Pain often arising from the thin layer of tissue lining the tendons or joints resulting in tenosynovitis, may affect ligaments, cartilage, or the joint itself resulting in joint inflammation. Initial treatments – rest, ice, the elevation of the limb or a compression bandage will help until you can see a Chiropractic.

If the pain does not subside within 48 hours seek help from an MSK-Chiropractor after assessing the area, they may use Laser to accelerate the tissue healing. Reducing the swelling and bruising, so the injury will have less blood clotting within the tissue, called haematoma, therefore, healing the healing time and speeding up recovery. Deep tissue massage, joint mobilisation, joint adjustment, KT taping assist to reduce the formation of scar tissue. Gentle stretching and strengthening exercises will be recommended to help to improve range of motion and reduce pain. Preventing the injury leading to chronic joint stiffness, ongoing weakness or even scarring – which takes much longer to Heal.
