Sports injuries and performance enhancement.

Whether you are a professional athlete, a fitness enthusiast or simply enjoy exercising in your spare time, osteopathy can help you with acute and chronic injuries. Once the injury has resolved, we can help you get back to your routine with rehabilitation exercises appropriate to the injured area.

Osteopathy is also very effective for injury prevention, as we work with the whole body to establish muscle balance and a good range of motion in the joints, reducing the risk of injury while improving your performance. Our osteopaths are qualified to provide specific strengthening and stretching exercises to meet your sporting needs.

Breathing is important in sport as the body is under stress and the respiratory rate is high. We ensure that the mechanics of the diaphragm and rib cage work optimally to maintain good respiratory function and allow you to perform at your best.
