Sport activities are a regular way of life for many of us now, and involve people from across all age groups from those who have an avid interest to those who just wish to keep fit; from the elite professional to the casual participant.
Many of the injuries are the result of overuse i.e. playing too hard and too often i.e. tennis elbow, golfers elbow and tendonitis, or from now warming up or warming done properly before and after exercise.
Young people are especially vulnerable in sport as their growing bodies are often expected to perform to high standards and are putting exceptional physical demands on themselves. The good news is that although sport injuries are common, those who are fit tend to recover more quickly and easily from their injuries.
How Osteopathy Can Help
An osteopath can help improve performance as well as treat the injuries being suffered.
By using knowledge of diagnosis and highly developed palpatory skills, we can help to restore structural balance, improve joint mobility and reduce adhesions and soft tissue restrictions so that ease of movement is restored and performance enhanced.
For those of you wishing to keep fit, the osteopath can help you keep supple and improve muscle tone so reducing the risk of injury to soft tissues unaccustomed to the extra work they are being asked to do.
