Sports Clinic Singapore – Sports Injury Management

Lasse Lindstrom

(Sunday Runner )

I enjoy running a lot but had to stop my favourite hobby due to an injury with my meniscus. I was already considering a knee operation but thanks to the fantastic and very professional help of PhysioActive, I was able to get back on the running track. It is amazing what can be done under the guidance of a skilled physiotherapist.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know if my injury is serious enough to see a Physiotherapist?

It can be hard to decide what symptoms are serious enough to justify making an appointment.

Online health sites can help you to research your symptoms before contacting a health professional but remember, many conditions have similar symptoms.
If you are feeling lost, unsure or amiss, call us for advice and book an appointment to put your mind at ease.

Can injuries be prevented?

Preventing injuries sometimes just takes a little thought and time.

By taking another look at your environment and lifestyle, you can respond to potential risks and keep situations manageable.

Sports injuries in particular, can also be prevented by preparing your body for the level of intensity. Overuse injuries and traumatic injuries can be avoided by using the proper techniques and engaging in strength & conditioning training.

What types of treatment will I receive?

The types of treatment that you receive will depend on your condition. Your physiotherapist might utilise a variety of treatment techniques, such as:

*Shockwave therapy
*Dry needling
*Manual therapy
*Clinical massage
*Exercise therapy
*Thermotherapy & Cryotherapy
*Taping & Strapping

I have been recommended surgery for my knee injury. Can I prevent surgery with Physiotherapy?

Studies have shown that physiotherapy is just as effective as surgery for healing meniscal tears or mild to moderate knee osteoarthritis.

While many types of knee injuries tend to be treatable without surgery, including MCL, PCL, and cartilage tears, every case is different. The need for surgery also depends on your level of activity. For instance, ACL reconstruction may be the best bet for a football player.

As a general rule (for knee conditions), researchers have suggested that if you are experiencing major pain but can move your leg, consider physiotherapy first. If you have good range of motion, physiotherapy may very well settle down the symptoms over time.

Are there any home care tips for my acute injury?

The R.I.C.E procedure is an industry-validated approach for the treatment of acute injuries such as a sprain or strain.


The primary goal of R.I.C.E. is to bring pain and swelling under control as quickly as possible.
