Managing Pain and Improving Long Term Outcomes
This decision to immobilise is often reserved for more serious sporting injuries such as fractures as well as high level ligament strains. Neither tendinopathies or muscle strains very rarely need to be immobilised and often a more functional approach to get back to pain free levels.
