There are many health benefits to staying active. Whether you are an elite athlete or you run around the park once in a while for general fitness, your osteopaths at Moreland Osteopathy may help to prevent and treat many sporting injuries.
Some common sporting injury regions are:
- Neck and back strains - Shoulder, elbow and wrist injuries - Hip and pelvic injuries - Knee, leg and ankle injuries.
Reduced joint or muscle flexibility will affect your performance. Previous injuries, excessive training or even unaccustomed exercise can increase strain on your joints and muscles which predisposes you to further injury. If you do become injured, your osteopaths here are highly trained to facilitate a return to optimal function and prevent compensatory strains from occurring. This aims to minimise re-injury and allow a quicker return to physical activity.
The sooner you seek proper clinical assessment, the better your chances of recovery. By not seeking clinical assessment there can be poor neuromuscular recruitment patterns within the body that can lead to further pain and progressive Chronic injury.
