Whether you are a professional athlete, a fitness enthusiast or a weekend warrior, osteopathy can help you with acute (sudden onset) and chronic (long standing) injuries. Once your injury is resolved, we can help you get back on track with rehabilitation exercises to restabilise the injured area.
Osteopathy is also an effective approach to injury prevention, as we work on the entire body to establish muscle balance and good range of motion in your joints, thereby reducing the risk of injury and injury recurrence while improving your performance. Your osteopath is qualified to provide you with specific strengthening and stretching exercises to suit your individual requirements.
Optimal breathing is particularly important in sport when the body is under stress to perform and the respiratory rate is elevated. Your osteopath can ensure that your diaphragm and rib cage mechanics are functioning optimally to maintain good breathing function and allow you to perform at your best.
