Sports Injuries

Osteopathy is an ideal treatment for most sports injuries, whether you are an enthusiastic amateur or an elite professional. Regular exercise benefits almost everyone but unfortunately can sometimes result in injuries that prevent individuals from enjoying and continuing with their activity and can reduce optimum performance.

Sports osteopathy looks at injury prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation. It is appropriate for those with acute or chronic injuries, regular exercisers or those wishing to begin an exercise programme. Even if you are in doubt of the severity of your injury, it is important to have the problem assessed and treated before a mild twinge becomes a major issue.

As well as treating common sports injuries, osteopathy can help with functional complaints such as reduced joint flexibility that may limit performance potential. By addressing the biomechanics of the restricted area, performance and enjoyment of your sport can be greatly enhanced.
