acute injury

An acute injury is an injury that has  a clearly-defined cause and time of occurrence. The area often exhibits swelling and various degrees of dysfunction, depending on the extent of damage. Rest is, during the first 24 hours, the primary form of treatment. It is thereafter important to contact an experienced physiotherapist in order to assess the degree of injury and immediately begin rehabilitation training. Examples of acute injuries are ankle sprains, joint dislocations and ruptured ligaments in and around the knee.

Chronic injury

Chronic pain usually occurs due to overuse or overload of a body part or area over a longer period of time. The tissues were charged more than they can tolerate, and with insufficient rest in between. This in turn leads to a persistent inflammation characterized by diffuse aching pain, stiffness, and decreased function. Common chronic injuries include impingement in the shoulder and jumper's knee. Back pain due to bulging or herniated discs are also chronic pain syndromes. 

after operation

Sometimes an injury, whether it is acute or chronic, is so extensive that it requires surgery to restore normal function. The rehabilitation time following can range from several weeks to months and usually involves some restriction in loading and / or range of motion. The treatment therefore requires very specific knowledge and management in order to achieve optimal healing. Rehabilitational exercise after surgery should always be performed under the supervision of a medically-skilled and experienced physiotherapist.
