One of the most common causes of the injuries we see are Trauma / Accidents. It is an event that caused the injury or the onset of the pain. Some of these events may be falls, motor vehicle accidents, sports injuries, assault or collisions.
Normally you feel pain immediately and are aware of the cause. The injured area may be inflamed, stiff and sore to touch. Depending on the severity of the trauma you may have had to go to the hospital for x-ray or scan and may have been diagnosed with a break in a bone, (medically called a fracture) of perhaps a soft tissue injury.
Here at our clinic we treat patients recovering from a fracture by resolving any pain that may be present following the healing of the fracture. At times the area may be quite stiff and you may have reduced movement in the area. We will rehabilitate the area and return it to normal function.
For soft tissue injuries we will reduce the pain and inflammation and using gentle techniques return the injured body part to normal function.
