Treatment For Sports Injuries

Staying active is one of the most important tools to a healthy body.

Unfortunately, exercise can also cause injury. This may a due to a trauma on the sports field, to overuse, or to poor technique. We’ve all had them, and we all want to get better as quickly as possible to help us continue doing what we love.

At Lifespan Osteopathy, we are fortunate enough to work with professional and semi-professional soccer players on a regular basis. That doesn’t mean, however, that your injury is less important to us. Whether you have injured yourself playing in front of thousands of people, or on your own at the gym, your injury still needs the same level care to help you get moving as quickly as possible.

Our friendly team work hard to provide you with the necessary osteopathy treatment for your sports injury, so you can get back to playing the sport you love

Possible Causes:

Often Sports Injuries arise from underlying biomechanical and structural issues, which fail under the demands of the sport. This is most obvious in repetitive strain injuries or injuries that seem to be recurring. Treatment of these conditions is not always because of muscle weakness- at times there are other factors such as misalignment, fascial or connective tissue causes at play.

Sports injuries resulting in muscle, ligament and bone injuries may also benefit from Osteopathic treatment and rehabilitation.

Treatment For Sports Injuries

Treatment choice really depends on the type of injury and its cause. Joint manipulation, soft tissue massage, and dry needling are our most frequently used techniques for sporting injuries.

Sports injuries usually require some form of home-based rehabilitation, ranging from ice and compression to strengthening and stretching.
