Osteopaths and Sports Injury

Many athletes in professional sports today sit on the sidelines with a sports injury that could have been prevented. Others stay on the bench because their particular injury does not respond to other standard treatments. And even more are playing, but at less than optimal performance, simply because their musculoskeletal system is not in balance.

More and more coaches, teams, and medical doctors are realising that pain management and medications are not the answer. Pain medication only covers up the symptoms; misleading athletes into thinking they can perform actions that could make their injury worse.

Focus on your Rehabilitation


Your first appointment will be no different from the usual Osteopathic consultation and evaluation. You will be asked specific questions related to your particular sport or even to demonstrate some movements. Your diagnosis and treatment plan will be discussed in the usual way.

Treatment is likely to involve the use of Osteopathic techniques within the treatment room combined with a more specific exercise based program in the studio gym. The aim is to return to full physical activity.

Injuries Osteopaths Frequently Treat

  Hamstring tears and neck pain from rugby
  Lower back pain from golf and cricket
  Achilles and calf strains from running
  Pelvic twists and sprains from horse riding
  Knee pain from football
   Tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis)
   Frozen shoulder
   Shoulder and elbow pain

By promoting a proactive, preventive strategy, Osteopaths help athletes decrease the likelihood of injury and maximise athletic performance. Why not book a pre and post-season check up, and make sure that any underlying imbalances in muscle tone aren't making you more prone to future injury.
