Ankle Sprain & Hamstring Strain

What is this?

When an accident occurs and the soft tissue fibres are torn the body responds by immobilizing the area with swelling and pain. As well as immobilizing the damaged area, swelling also reduces the speed of the healing process.

How we help

After the first 3 days where cold, rest and elevation is the best treatment, a gentle massage can help with the healing process by starting to remove the swelling, increasing the circulation and aligning the new fibres so as to ensure a good heal and reduce possible scar tissue adhesion. Once healing has been established movement and the rebuilding of strength and proprioceptive control is essential to avoid future weakness and recurring injury.

For proven effective treatment of muscular aches, pains and soft tissue injuries.
