After assessing the injury the treatment process can begin. This could be anything from a wide range of possible methods. Hands on manual therapy can be used so the therapist can have a physical effect on the area. Not only this but mobilisations can be incorporated into the treatment plan so the patient will be physically manipulated to reduce pain and increase the range of motion. From observation of any skeletal muscular imbalances the therapist will then be able to create a rehabilitation programme that will specifically target the problem area. As well as these hands on methods, many others are also available. From ultrasound treatment and preventative strapping techniques to neurodynamics and kinesiology taping, there is a variety of treatment methods the therapist can choose from.
