Ligament and tendon injuries
Ligaments and tendons are what keep our joints together, and are prone to strains and sprains when we don't listen carefully to our bodies messages or over-ride and over do things sometimes.
These may require some electrotherapy treatments such as uUtrasound therapy or LASER, gentle manual therapy and exercises with careful advice to progress recovery. It is very easy to be "Just well enough to make things worse" so working together to discuss your unique situation can help.
