Sports Injury Pain ReliefSports Injury Pain Relief

At Physio Specialists Ltd we understand the frustration and debilitating effects of having a sports injury and being in pain. We are committed to providing effective sports injury pain relief through therapy and treatment designed specifically for your needs.

Our team of friendly and knowledgeable Therapists are trained in a wide range of modalities to ensure you receive the very best combination of treatments for your condition.

Minor injuries, such as mild sprains and strains, can often be initially treated at home using PRICE therapy for two or three days.

PRICE stands for protection, rest, ice, compression and elevation.

Protection – protect the affected area from further injury – for example, by using a support.
Rest – avoid exercise and reduce your daily physical activity. Using crutches or a walking stick may help if you can’t put weight on your ankle or knee. A sling may help if you’ve injured your shoulder.
Ice – apply an ice pack to the affected area for 15-20 minutes every two to three hours. A bag of frozen peas, or similar, will work well. Wrap the ice pack in a towel so that it doesn’t directly touch your skin and cause an ice burn.
Compression – use elastic compression bandages during the day to limit swelling.
Elevation – keep the injured body part raised above the level of your heart whenever possible. This may also help reduce swelling.
