muscle, tendon & ligament problems

From simple strains and sprains, tendonitis, to major ligament injury such as a cruciate ligament tear in the knee or a shoulder dislocation. Soft tissue injury is one of the most common problems we deal with at Joint Care Clinic.

It is important to initially protect the injured area to avoid any further damage, at least until it can be assessed, and the severity of injury determined.

From then on, treatment of pain and swelling is very important, followed by restoration of range of motion, muscle activity and strength before looking at how we can return you to normal function.

Even with a more significant injury, such as those mentioned above, surgery is not necessarily the first step, as many patients can manage to return to normal after these injuries provided they undergo appropriate rehabilitation.
