Project Description

Condition

Joints allow movement between bones, they are prone to injury which left untreated could deteriorate, leading to a longer recovery period and additional pain and discomfort.

An injury can happen to any joint in the body and normally occur through a number of causes such as:

  • Traumatic – fractures, ligament sprains/tears, sprains, dislocations
  • Overuse – muscle tendonitis, muscle strain
  • Infections
  • Rheumatic – rheumatoid arthritis

The injury can affect the range and quality of movement and strength of the joint. An injury to a joint is normally associated with one, all, or a combination of the following symptoms:

  • Pain
  • Swelling
  • Limited range of motion
  • Heat
  • Bruising

Treatment

Bodytone physiotherapy can offer assessment, treatment, and advice for injuries sustained to joints. Our physiotherapy treatment can assist with:

  • Optimising healing
  • Reducing swelling
  • Decreasing pain
  • Provide self-management strategies
  • It is sometimes necessary to refer on for a surgical opinion or further investigation (e.g. MRI scan). We have a list of surgeons we use for each specific joint injury.

There are a variety of treatment options that can be used and will be suggested by the experienced physiotherapist after assessment of the injury. Some of the most common treatments are:

  • Mobilisation of the joint and the surrounding soft tissues.
  • Advice around ice therapy and anti-inflammatory strategies.
  • Balance and proprioceptive exercises
  • Strengthening exercises
  • Acupuncture
