Tendons are the connective tissue which hold your muscles to your bones, and when you overexert yourself (or are in an unfortunate accident) they can strain, tear or rupture causing immense pain.
If you suffer from any muscle, ligament or tendon injury it is imperative that you make an appointment with your Leeds physiotherapist as soon as possible to receive advice and treatment. These injuries are more difficult to rectify the longer you leave it so an immediate assessment is recommended.
In some cases, a ligament, muscle or tendon injury might be allowed to heal gradually over time with steady treatment, but in other cases surgery may be the only option.
In any eventuality, David Stringer Physiotherapy will be able to help you diagnose and treat you injuries to get you on the path to a full recovery.
