Sprains and strains in sports usually results in tissue damage, resulting in pain and limitation of range of motion. Soft tissue treatments such as massage and trigger point release will loosen tension in your muscle and break down scar tissue. Joint mobilization and manipulation will restore mobility in the joint. Restoring proper biomechanics in the tissue will improve your range of motion and reduce pain.
Active release technique
Active release is used to treat specific muscles, ligaments, fascia, and nerves. There are over 500 customize protocols to treat individual muscles. Active release is the gold standard in soft tissue treatment and often used in treatment of injuries in professional sport teams. Releasing tension in soft tissue helps reduce pain and allow your body to move through its full range.
Exercise helps restore proper movement patterns needed to get you back to your sport. At Rebuild physiotherapy, we strive to help you improve your technique by ensuring proper recruitment of your whole body. Studying your movement patterns and biomechanics we will find the root cause of your injury. By correcting your muscle imbalances you will move more efficiently, elevating performance, and prevent re-injury.
Medical acupuncture involves the insertion of needles into your body to promote healing and improve function. The needles are inserted into nerve receptors in the muscle, which sends signals into the nervous system to release hormones producing this therapeutic effect. For a sport injury, acupuncture will improve blood flow to promote healing, increase muscle strength to restore function, release endorphins to decrease pain. The effects of acupuncture are quick and long lasting.
