Back on the Move: Treating Sports Injuries

Back on the Move shares all you need to know about osteopathy.

Sports injuries are commonly caused by overuse, direct impact, or the application of force that is greater than the body part can structurally withstand. The nature of sports is intense and frantic so injuries are inevitable.

Athletes and individuals who play sports regularly are more prone to develop sports injuries. Some of the common sports injuries are sprains and strains, fractures, herniated disc, knee injuries, dislocation, and more. These injuries occur from various sports such as golf, football, basketball, athletics, tennis and contact sports. Sports injuries can also occur because of poor training practices.

Osteopathy pinpoints problems relating to muscles, bones and tissues which helps identify wider issues that contribute to pain and specific problems. The aim of osteopathic treatment is to accelerate your injuries’ healing time, relieve pain, identify other problem areas within your body and minimize the chance of the injury recurrence. The body feels repercussions from sports at any level, you don’t have to be a professional athlete to visit an osteopath.
