Sports injury & performance

sports injuriesWhile we all know the benefits to our health of taking part in sport and exercising generally, we also realise that sometimes we can get injured as a consequence.

These injuries can be from overuse, tiredness resulting in error, poor training practices,  accidents and traumatic impacts, improper equipment and lack of fitness.

No athlete wants to interrupt their training schedule, and it is only in exceptional circumstances will you be asked to take time off as generally improvements can be made during a treatment session and advice given so that you can modify and continue your training.

It is important that you follow the aftercare advice given to you by your osteopath including doing any stretches or exercises. They will be happy to discuss these matters with your coaches if you wish, so that you have a team working together to your benefit.
