Although exercise is an important part of a healthy lifestyle, sports injuries can affect men and women of all ages and abilities. Pain is often the result of localised swelling of tissue which creates pressure on nerves. An osteopath can diagnose the cause of the pain and take action to facilitate a speedy recovery. Osteopaths treat most sports injuries including:

• Tennis elbow
• Runner’s knee
• Hamstring tears
• Shin splints
• Muscle fatigue and imbalance
• Osgood-Slater’s Syndrome
• Achilles Tendonitis
• Plantar Fasciitis (Heel pain)
• Calf strain
• Shoulder Rotator Cuff injury
• … and many more.

Sports Massage by an osteopath, together with the right exercises can help to prevent injury and aid recovery from stiffness or soreness. If injury to muscles, tendons or ligaments does occur, massage helps the tissues to heal quickly.
