Dealing with sporting injuries.
The use of sport’s osteopathy can help as a means to detect, treat and prevent a number of health problems.
It involves the moving, stretching and massaging of muscles and joints within the body.
Most people who choose to see a sport’s osteopath suffer from conditions that affect the muscles, bones and joints.
Why so many sporting injuries occur
Sport plays a huge role in many people’s lives, with many involving themselves in a range of different activities as both a hobby and to keep fit.
Many sport’s injuries are a result of playing too hard or not performing proper warm-ups and cooldowns.
Age has a critical impact on who is likely to be injured during sport’s activities as well. Older and younger participants put greater physical demands on themselves.
However, although sport’s injuries are extremely common, they are also relatively easy to treat. Many people recover quickly, easily and efficiently from their injuries.
How does Sport’s Osteopathy help?
Osteopaths can help to improve performances within sports as well as treat injuries that may have occurred.
They can help to restore structural balance, ease of movement and joint mobility which can greatly enhance performance.
Osteopaths encourage the joints range of motion, which in turn reduces pain and stiffness within the muscles and joints because it increases blood flow to the affected areas.
Osteopathy helps to look for and remove the underlying cause of pain rather than just treating the symptoms with pain relief.
Massaging soft tissue helps to decrease tension and stress of joints within the body. It encourages lymphatic drainage, increases blood flow, and helps with nutritional intake within the bones, joints and muscles.
Osteopaths work in a way that helps to restore your body to a state of balance, without the additional use of medicine or surgery.
Through the use of touch, physical manipulation, stretching and massaging, the mobility of joints is increased, muscle tension is relieved, and blood and nerve supply to tissues is increased.
An osteopathy uses hands-on treatment in order to find, treat and protect a huge range of health-related conditions.
