Unfortunately, one of the downsides of sport is a sports injury. Fortunately, sports injury occurs relatively infrequently, so the health and psychological benefits of participating in the sport far outweigh the potential temporary downside of a sports injury.
Luckily, medical care continues to improve every year. Health professionals, such as your sports physio or sports physician, deal with the day-to-day management of sports injury and are highly qualified in the field of sports injury management.
If you wish to assess, accurately diagnose and optimally manage your sports injury in the shortest possible time, then you should seek the advice of your sports injury physiotherapist.
