Osteopathy is very beneficial in the treatment of sports injuries, as it identifies and treats the underlying cause and mechanical stressors, whilst improving your function, posture and ultimately improving performance.
Whether it is a chronic or acute problem, evaluation and treatment aim to prevent further injury and rehabilitate through corrective exercises and stretching. The osteopath is motivated to provide a speedy recovery, ensuring your timely return to sporting endeavours, where ever possible.
The osteopath has a detailed knowledge and understanding of the structure and function of the human body, enabling us to identify the problem and underlying cause which may have occurred because of injury or mechanical stress. Assessment of the movements that either caused the injury or are specific to the sport provide a great insight, allowing the osteopath to tailor the treatment and corrective exercises to the individual. This will enable the body to heal itself, thus improving performance and reducing the possibility of further injuries.
Osteopathy is beneficial for many different sports, such as:
- DIY & Gardening
- Martial Arts
