Osteopathy treatment for sports injury
Whether you live for your sport or you’re just finding your way into a new exercise regime, the last thing you want is a sports injury slowing you down or even making you stop doing what you love.
Sports injuries can be acute – the direct result of an event, such as a twisted ankle – or chronic – an ongoing issue caused by the overuse of the same muscle group, tendon problems or joints. Either way, if you do have a sports injury, you may need support to help get you back to full health and fitness.
Osteopathy is an effective treatment option for acute and chronic sports injuries, as well as a preventative therapy that can help you stay supple, strong and injury-free.
How osteopathy can help a sports injury
Osteopathy is an excellent treatment option for sports injuries relating to the tendons, muscles and ligaments. It can even be used to help you improve your performance and prevent injuries from occurring in the first place.
These days, most sports clubs employ an osteopath to help keep their athletes in optimum physical shape and prevent injury as well as to treat specific injuries when they occur.
Osteopathy can help with:
- Finding out the cause of the problem
- Help restore the structural balance of your body
- Improve the mobility, strength and flexibility of your joints
- Reduce adhesions and soft tissue restrictions to give you greater ease of movement
- Keep you supple and address muscle tone
- Reduce the risk of injury
- Management of minor injury towards recovery
As someone who lives a really active life, it was wanting to know more about treating sports injuries that lead me into osteopathy. I know what it’s like to live and breathe a sport – I used to compete in equestrian eventing and now enjoy munro bagging! It’s so important to be able to head outside for a walk or run and enjoy work without experiencing pain.
I’m committed to helping you recover from your injury so that you can get back to doing what you love.
