Do I Need Scans?

The first step in your recovery is an accurate diagnosis of the structures you have injured, and the severity of that damage. Your sports therapist in Camberwell will go through the specifics of the incident with you and then perform a range of sports injury assessments to determine exactly which tissues have been damaged, and to what extent. In some cases (but not all), an x-ray, ultrasound or MRI scan may be required to further assess the damage. If this is the case, your sports injury specialist in Camberwell will provide you with a referral to go and have the appropriate scan. If you have damaged something severely enough to require surgery, we have a network of specialist orthopaedic surgeons we can refer you to depending on your needs.
