Osteopathy and Sports
Whether you’re a professional athlete, training for the marathon, or simply like to keep fit and healthy, osteopathy can and speed up recovery from injury. Many of the injuries are the result of ill-fitting footwear (which can cause hip, knee and foot injuries such as Achilles injuries), overuse i.e. playing too hard and too often or from not warming up properly before exercise.
Osteopathy can also improve your performance by addressing any reduced joint flexibility, muscular tensions, or posture problems. Treatment can help keep the body supple and reduce the risk of injury by improving muscle tone and giving advice on diet and post exercise stretches.
We often manage injuries related to sports such as football, running, rugby, dancing, skiing, tennis and martial arts.
