Recover from sprains & strains faster with professional recommendations from our knowledgeable and experienced staff.

At Hampstead, Sneads Ferry, and Topsail Physical Therapy, we opened our doors in 2006 and have been treating sprains & strains ever since. Sprains & strains are injuries that affect all ages, and even though younger individuals often heal faster than older ones, it can be difficult to completely heal from sprains & strains without reinjuring yourself.

Sprains & Strains

When you come to us with a suspected sprain or strain, we will carefully evaluate your symptoms to determine exactly what the source of your pain might be. You could have a foot fracture, ligament tears in your ankle, hip problems, a knee injury like an ACL strain or a meniscus tear. The exact diagnosis will dramatically affect the recommended treatment you receive as part of your personalized treatment plan.

The most common cause of sprains & strains is a sudden twist of your ankle, knee, hip or wrist. This sudden movement can lead to overstretched or even torn ligaments in your joint, leading to swelling and pain in the area. Physical therapy can help you heal faster, regain your strength and reduce the likelihood of a repeat injury in the same location.

We are proud to be your local, neighborhood physical therapist. We are standing by to help you by relieving your pain and restoring your function. Maybe you twisted your ankle stepping off the sidewalk and your injury is keeping you from enjoying your favorite activities. Or maybe you injured yourself while participating in a favorite sport or outdoor activity. Give us a call now to schedule an assessment.
