Post-injury physiotherapy is the process of providing physiotherapy after an individual has suffered an injury. Many patients who have suffered injuries do not have the right knowledge to recover or rehabilitate themselves. Post-injury physiotherapy includes a correct diagnosis, personalized treatment through exercises, re-education of muscles, improving range of motion, enhanced performance for daily activities, improved mental health and the overall improvement of body functions. Typical injury physiotherapy includes treatment for ankle injuries, thigh muscle injury treatment, knee injury rehabilitation and injury prevention in sports.
Suffering from an injury can have adverse effects on the muscle strength, flexibility, body movements, psychology and overall functioning. Dealing with these injuries often requires physiotherapy that helps restore normal body functioning, provide pain relief, improves muscle strength and flexibility and helps an individual cope with the mental stress of dealing with an injury. Post-injury physiotherapy is important to help address pain and start the process of recovery. Post-injury physiotherapy is also important to prevent re-injury.
