Your physiotherapist will complete a detailed and thorough diagnosis, assessing the events leading up to injury, the onset of the pain, as well as considering your overall musculoskeletal health. In this manner, physiotherapists can determine the structural cause of pain and the specific course of action it requires. Moreover, physiotherapists will determine potential weaknesses or movement disorders that contributed to the cause or are preventing you from healing.
Once your diagnosis has been determined, your physiotherapist will discuss the plan for treatment, and the ways to return to sport. Usually, an immediate period of rest is followed by a gradual return to activity with the use of rehabilitative exercises. Physiotherapists also work with coaches and other doctors to ensure your recovery is guided, not rushed and meets your requirements.
