Participating in sporting exercise is a priority for most people seeking an active and healthy lifestyle. Sports injuries tend to occur due to a direct impact, playing too hard or frequently, and not warming up or cooling down sufficiently. Typical conditions include muscle and ligament strains, shoulder strains, tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow, biceps tendinitis or pain to the hips, knees or feet.
Biomechanical dysfunction is the underlying cause of most injuries. We specialise in the diagnosis and correction of biomechanical dysfunction, which occurs when there is excessive or reduced movement between the joints and soft tissue. We may assess your mechanics during activity to provide the most appropriate treatment and after care to reduce the risk of your injury recurring. If required, we can apply Kinesio tape to problematic areas, helping to relieve pain, reduce inflammation, relax muscles and support rehabilitation.
Osteopathy not only offers a diagnosis and treatment, but can help improve your workout efficiency and performance. Our osteopaths can release tension, increase mobility and alleviate pain by using a combination of treatments tailored to suit your specific needs, including soft tissue massage, joint manipulation and articulation.
