Early referral is essential to ensure an optimal outcome. This allows the application of a splint to protect the injured area and the commencement of exercises to prevent stiffness (if able). Early intervention also allows commencement of education regarding precautions and, in the case of overuse injuries, activity modification. This assists in early return to work without risk of reinjury.
