The Minor Injuries Centre is able to treat an array of orthopaedic and traumatic injuries. We have a dedicated team of highly skilled doctors and senior nurses that are expert in assessing, diagnosing and managing sprains, fractures and sports injuries.
We pride ourselves in providing a network of well established, senior private specialist consultants that are available for referral for more complex musculoskeletal injuries.
The diagnosis of a sprain injury is made by a physical examination. In most cases an x-ray of the affected joint is obtained to ensure that there are no fractures. If there is a tear in the ligament or soft tissue suspected, then an MRI or arthroscopy is obtained. MRI is usually ordered after swelling has subsided and can readily identify the presence of a ligament injury.
We can also arrange hospital admission, short and long term follow-up through our dedicated orthopaedic trauma and sports medicine consultants.
