Phase 1 - Reduce irritability of pain, reduce swelling, weight bear as tolerated.

Our physiotherapists use heat, ice massage (to reduce arthrogenic muscle inhibition), soft tissue work and joint mobilisations. The main goal here is protection of the injury whilst we initiate early loading procedures - passive range of motion, active range of motion, isometric contractions, balance proprioceptive training.

Phase 2 - Increase strength, increase load.

Our physiotherapists will quickly increase the amount of load that is going into the injured tissue - this stimulates cellular healing and helps the injured tissue to restore itself, realign fibres and ultimately is helping increase the capacity of that tissue - our physios use progressive overload principles, heavy slow resistance, heavy isometrics and heavy isotonic exercise to stimulate healing.

Phase 3 - Increase energy storage and release.

Our physiotherapists will quickly increase the amount of load that is going into the injured tissue - this stimulates cellular healing and helps the injured tissue to restore itself, realign fibres and ultimately is helping increase the capacity of that tissue - our physios use progressive overload principles, heavy slow resistance, heavy isometrics and heavy isotonic exercise to stimulate healing.
