Sprains and Back Pain

Treatment for Sprains and Back Pain

SHORCUTS FAQ
FAQ
Sprains can be as painful and difficult to heal as fractures and should be taken seriously, especially supportive joints such as ankles and knees.

Our doctors will ensure you receive a thorough examination and where required, a fast referral for imaging. Your joint will be strapped and secured and crutches are available at the clinic.

Should imaging reveal tendon or ligament injury, further management might be required from an orthopaedic specialist and ongoing physiotherapy, which can be arranged via our clinic.

Our clinic provides urgent and walk-in appointments for joint and sudden back pain.

We will do a full assessment, organise any x-rays or scans and provide pain relief and further treatment.
Our aim is to secure the joint, reduce the chance of any further damage, relieve pain and improve mobility.

FAQ

What’s the difference between a strain and a sprain?

A sprain is a tear or stretch in a ligament (the tissue that connects two or more bones around a joint). A strain is an injury to a muscle or a tendon.

What Causes a Sprain?

Possible causes of a sprain include a fall or sudden twist, a forceful impact to a joint that forces it out of position, or otherwise stretches or tears the supporting ligament.

What are the symptoms of a sprain?

The most common symptoms of a sprain are pain, bruising, swelling, joint instability, and loss of motion around the joint. You may have noticed a pop or tearing sensation at the moment of injury.
