SPORTS INJURIES AND REHABILITATION
Whether at recreational, amateur or professional level, sports injuries are part of everyday life, particularly in contact sports. Repetitive strains, poor gait, over training or random unfortunate incidents all take their toll on the body.
Osteopathy helps a great deal and is being used increasingly by the professional elite sports industry due to its holistic approach to diagnosis, treatment and even prevention of further injury.
Osteopaths use a combination of deep tissue massage, manipulation, trigger point therapy and stretching to get you back on your feet. Often ultrasound and sports taping is useful for tendon and ligament injuries.
Understanding the cause of your injury is as important as the treatment itself and this knowledge can often help to reduce the risk of a repeat injury.

Having trained for these types of events herself and in turn trained others, she is able to draw on her extensive insight into the technicalities of the sports, in addition to understanding how injuries occur and how best to treat and help prevent them.
