Having good flexibility and a good range of movement within the joints is of great importance to sportspeople. With poor joint mobility and tight muscles optimum function of the human body is limited which can often lead to injury.
As osteopaths we have special training in body biomechanics, through posture and joint analysis we can identify these muscular or joint imbalances promoting a faster recovery time or enhancing sports function. Osteopathy can be used for sports injuries or the prevention of injury.
Osteopathy is particularly effective for sports that require controlled body mechanics such as golf and tennis.
We see many sports injuries within the clinic. Here a list of common injuries seen in clinic.
