Osteopathy and sport injuries

Whether you compete at a professional level, or just enjoy sports to keep active, sporting injuries are a common occurrence for people of all ages. The very nature of some sports can be tough on the body from the repeatedly performing the same type of tasks/movements through to the physical strain placed on the body during contact sports.

For those experiencing pain, tightness of the muscles and problematic re-occurring injuries an Osteopath is able to look at the body as a whole and understand that these issues are often the result of underlying imbalances and lifestyle factors.

Osteopathic treatment is able to not only help with pain management, but also rehabilitation, strengthening the body towards the goal of preventing further injury. Osteopathic treatment works because it focuses collectively on muscle and tissue imbalances as well as joint mobility and alignment across the whole body.
