1/3 Australians are injured playing sports every year. That is a huge number when you consider that exercise is meant to be good for us! Whilst exercise is great for the body, sometimes it does unfortunately cause an injury. There is no need to push through those injuries, osteopaths can help you get on top of sporting niggles that may be hindering your performance, or worse, stopping you entirely!
When you see an osteopath for your sport-related injuries, your osteopath will review the way your body moves, including any restrictions to your range of movement, speed, agility, flexibility or strength, that may interfere with the requirements of your chosen sport.
Osteopathy places a huge emphasis on communication and education, so we will discuss with you, your perceived sporting performance, muscle weaknesses or injury concerns, and understand past injuries you have sustained.
