How Long Will it Take to Get Better??

How long does it take to recover from injury
How long will it take to get better Phys? This is a question we get asked multiple times a day, every day. Firstly, every injury is different, as is every patient. It is not one size fits all or one magic potion. In saying that though, most injuries have similar patterns of recovery and rehabilitation. The first stage of physiotherapy is usually to decrease pain and inflammation and address any neuromotor deficits (like balance or coordination). This will be followed by regaining range ...

It has also been proven to decrease chronic systemic inflammation, not to mention preventing at least 25 other chronic conditions. It’s no wonder then that lots of people run – but as physiotherapists we often see people who have injured themselves when they run the wrong way. So what are the main things that runners do that ...
