Sports Injuries & Biomechanics

Often problems can arise if we do not allow enough time for the body to adapt to new physical challenges. This could be caused by any change in your daily activity, for example, starting a new walking regime or increasing your training program for a triathlon. To achieve our sporting goals it is often necessary to walk the tight rope between physical progression and physical breakdown.

 Osteopaths are trained to examine the body from a global perspective to identify regional interactions and how stress in one region of the body may impact another. This makes osteopathy extremely effective for diagnosing and treating sports injuries.

Our team also have extensive knowledge in post injury care so they can provide specific advice in regards to post injury rehabilitation, which is vital for returning you to optimum performance and reducing the risks of re-injury

Common conditions that are seen by osteopaths include:

  • Sports Injuries (e.g. tennis elbow, golfers elbow, swimmers shoulder, cyclist/ runners ITB syndrome)
  • Repetitive strain injury (RSI)
  • Spinal and peripheral joint injury
  • Biomechanical dysfunction
  • Muscle and ligament injury
  • Compartment Syndrome
