Sporting Injury Management
Sporting injuries are very common and varied. They can occur in both elite and beginner sporting participants. Osteopaths can assist with the diagnosis and treatment of common sporting injuries, in addition to helping to prevent them occurring. These may include and not limited to:
- Shoulder, elbow or wrist injuries
- Hip, knee and ankle injuries
- Neck and back strains
- Tendonitis (golfer’s/tennis elbow, rotator cuff)
- Shin splints
Poorly addressed or untreated sporting injuries can lead to early degenerative conditions, recurrence or compensatory injuries.
Osteopathic treatment of sporting injuries includes soft tissue release and stretching, joint mobilization and manipulation all of which promote enhanced circulatory and nervous system function. Osteopaths can provide you with exercise programs to help you avoid musculoskeletal injuries.
Osteopaths can also assist with more efficient respiratory function. Your ribs and diaphragm are paramount in good breathing. Osteopaths can ensure your ribs and diaphragm are functioning optimally.
