Check this post out to find out more about the most common should injury▶️▶️

Acute phase of recovery: The goal of this phase is to protect the injured muscle and maintain the strength and range of surrounding joints while the healing process begins.

Sub-acute phase of recovery: This is when the body is starting to lay down new soft tissue and is ready to begin gradual loading of these tissues. It is important in this stage to continue to protect the new tissue as it is not as strong as it needs to be to make a return to high intensity sport or activity and will be at risk of re-injury if not loaded gradually.

End stage phase of recovery: The purpose of this stage is to prepare the new muscle tissue for the high intensity loads of work/sport. Each injury and individual are different and therefore time frames and tolerance to exercise will differ. Book in with your physiotherapist to receive a proper assessment and individualised rehabilitation programme to make sure you return to sport as quickly and safely as possible. @ Christchurch, New Zealand
