Not sure if the pain you’re experiencing is serious or not? These points can help you decide if you should see a physiotherapy about your pain or injury.
How to know it’s time to see a physio
You keep rolling your ankle
Restricted mobility, inefficient movement patterns and underlying musculoskeletal issues can indicate that you’re suffering from recurring injuries. Our physiotherapists can provide you with mobilising and strengthening exercises to help correct imbalances.
You’re tired all the time
If you’re suffering from shoulder or back pain, it can be difficult to get a good night’s sleep. Reducing the pain can help you sleep better and wake up feeling refreshed.
You’re getting headaches
Headaches can be caused by poor posture and muscular tension in the jaw or neck. Of course, if your headaches are severe in nature, our physios will refer you to a medical professional.
You have sharp pain in your heel
If you feel stabbing heel pain, especially in the morning, it can be a sign of plantar fasciitis. We can help ease your symptoms with taping and soft tissue massage and take you through beneficial stretches.
You’re tripping over a lot
If you’re losing your balance more than usual, it’s time to book an appointment with Sports Focus. We can identify the cause of your balance issues and give you the appropriate treatment plan.
Your mobility is restricted
Maintaining a good range of motion can reduce your risk of injury. If you have any issues incumbering your movement, we can take you through appropriate stretches and strategies to help improve mobility.
Your ear is aching
If you regularly experience ear ache, a clicking sound when eating, neck pain, facial pain or headaches, you might be suffering from jaw dysfunction (TMJ). We can help you manage this pain and improve dysfunction while techniques such as mobilisation, massage and dry needling.
