Sports Injury

Overuse, playing to hard, and not warming-up or stretching properly are common causes of injuries when playing sports. It is important to warm-up before and cool-down after each activity. In addition, using ill-fitting footwear or gear can lead to hip, knee or foot injuries. Injuries can result from repetitive overuse or wear and tear from any hobby, sport or activity.

How can osteopathic treatment help sports injuries?

  • Osteopathy will help treat the injuries being suffered and enable the body’s peak performance to be restored.*
  • Hands-on techniques will be used to help reduce inflammation, restore structural balance, improve mobility and influence your limbs and joints back to smooth movement.*
  • We will use a variety of different hands-on manipulation techniques to help ease your symptoms, get to the cause of the problem and get you back to your normal lifestyle. We may gently manipulate the elbow, wrist, neck and upper back joints, depending on where the strain-pattern is located.*
  • We may offer you advice on which activities and movements to avoid, advice on specific exercise and advice for appropriate sports braces to use for support, Kinesiotaping (KT tape) to improve stability, as well as making custom orthotics.*
