Any mascular problems especially in events of sports, or even a fall, with no problems to bones, can be treated by physiotherapy. But most hospitals i know, have this policy, that only after the orthopaedics doctor checks you, he can transfer you to the physiotherapist. I dont know how far this is true, but will appreciate if someone can let me know.

Evaluating, diagnosing, and treating a range of diseases, disorders, and disabilities using physical means. Practiced by physiotherapists or physical therapists, physiotherapy is considered within the realm of conventional medicine. Though physiotherapy is typically practiced by physical therapists, certain tasks may be delegated to trained assistants or other types of health professionals.
Treatment is guided by the findings of the assessment. Based on the unique needs of the patient, various physiotherapeutic treatment methods are employed. Such methods may include musculoskeletal, cardiopulmonary, and integumentary physiotherapy techniques. Physiotherapeutic treatment methods are constantly evolving as the field grows.
