All sports injuries require accurate diagnosis and early intervention to minimise time off the field or court. Most sportspeople have a good understanding of their own bodies and the importance of immediate first aid management. It is also essential to find a Physiotherapist who appreciates the demands of your particular sport, as rehabilitation should be sport specific. Further, safe return to sport requires a high level of understanding of both the injury and the demands of the sport. Self-diagnosing and premature return to activity are key factors in poor recovery and reaggravation.
