It may be possible to self-manage the injury using the PRICE technique and using supports.
Depending on your injury, physiotherapy treatments may include manual therapy, electrotherapy, strapping and exercise or rehabilitation guidance.

After assessment, which may include a specialist MRI scan, and if sports physiotherapy has not improved symptoms fully, you may need keyhole surgery (hip arthroscopy).
Seek medical attention if your first aid has not significantly reduced your pain, irritation or swelling within five days. Try to find a hand therapist if your injury is to your hand or wrist or a specialist physiotherapist if shoulder, elbow, back or leg. The types of treatments depend on the type of injury but commonly used is kinesiology taping to inhibit or encourage muscle function, anti-inflammatory modalities such as ice, electrotherapy and splinting as well as multiple different types of exercise. Return to sport also needs to be graded and sensible. Your hand therapist or physiotherapist will be able to assess your weaknesses and help train you to return safely.
