Q. What is the difference between muscle soreness and pain?
A. Although both can feel similar, soreness will typically appear the day after exercising, while pain from an injury will often appear immediately.
Another sign of injury is if the pain is localized to a specific area. Pain will often take much longer to subside than soreness. If you believe that you
are experiencing pain from overuse or an injury, it may be a good time to call The Centre for Physiotherapy.
Q. I fell on the ice and sprained my ankle. What does this mean, and what can I do?
A. A sprain generally refers to an injury of the ligament. Ligaments attach bone to bone. After a sprain, you may have pain, swelling and limited
mobility of the joint. A ligament that is sprained may have been stretched. Things to do immediately following a sprain are to follow the acronym RICE (rest, ice, compression, elevation). A comprehensive physiotherapy assessment will help to identify the cause of injury. A treatment program including manual therapy, electrotherapeutic modalities and a rehabilitation program can help to relieve the pain and swelling and restore the mobility and strength of the joint.
Q. Can tibialis posterior tendonitis be diagnosed?
A. Posterior tibialis tendonitis can be caused by many factors. Usually it is pretty straight forward to diagnose. One of the functions of the tibialis
posterior is to help with inversion of the foot. The part of the tendon that runs under the inside of your ankle bone does not have a good blood supply. Hence, when there is an injury due to trauma or overuse, the body has difficulty delivering nutrients to help with the healing. Therefore, the healing process may take some time. If you had an eversion injury to your ankle, there is a good chance that you may have strained the tendon. However, you may also have sprained one or more ligaments in that area. If you have an in-depth orthopedic assessment with a registered physiotherapist, they should be able to assess and come to some form of accurate diagnosis and the right treatment plan. Without examining your ankle in detail, this is the best information we can give you at this point.
