Got an injury, Try this!


Following an injury, you might find yourself searching for answers regarding the best approach to get yourself back to the activities/hobbies you love to do.

In your pursuit for answers, you may have come across recommendations such as: the traditional RICE (Rest, Ice, Compress, Elevate) method, the POLICE (Protection, Optimal Loading, Ice, Compression, Elevation) method, or maybe the use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. In exploring this topic further, you should consider the emerging and updated method to optimal healing, as the shift and consensus is towards the acronym, MOVE! The experts urge us to use exercise to help facilitate healing, such movement promotes “tissue repair and remodeling in tendon, muscle, cartilage and bone.” Karim Khan, a famous researcher, says it best, “Movement needs to be prescribed more and physiotherapists have a lot more training than primary care doctors at guiding patients in this.”

Let’s take up on this and do what our bodies love best, move. If you or someone you know needs a helping hand to get started, we at Big Stone Therapies are here for you.
