Sports Injuries

Sports Injuries are often the result of overuse and over training, such as runner’s knee or tennis elbow where the athlete pushes his/her body to the limit. Sports injuries can also occur due to under training or poor training practices. Not stretching or having a good warm up regime can also lead to injury as the body is not prepared for the exercise.

So whether you are a weekend warrior or an elite athlete, osteopathy can help with prevention of injury as well as treatment of many common sporting or recreational injuries. Ankle and shoulder injuries are very common in amateur and professional sport. These injuries are often neglected or poorly treated which can lead to recurrence and early degenerative conditions.

Some common sporting injuries are neck & back strain, shoulder, elbow & wrist injuries e.g. tennis/golf elbow, hip, knee, leg & ankle injuries, groin strain, achilles tendonitis, cartilage/ligament strain and more.

Rehabilitation and Prescriptive Exercise at Cedar Hall Clinics

Our Rehabilitation Team help athletes and those recovering from operations or other trauma with a series of treatments and exercise regimes. This helps reduce pain, promote movement of stiffened muscles, prevents recurring damage and restores normal function to the injured site.

Various techniques used in rehabilitation have significance of their own in improving physical performance and restoring athletes to normal activity:

  • Stretching and bending exercises improve flexibility of the injured muscles
  • Massage techniques relieves the tension of the muscles and improves the blood flow to the injured area
  • Stability exercises restores the functions and movements of the broken or injured joints

The Rehab Team work in conjunction with our osteopaths, our Sports Injuries team and our podiatrist. Having competed at a high level in a variety of sports and activities, all our practitioners have experience of coping with injuries and the disabling effect these can have. Rehabilitation programmes are an important part of recovery and can heal injury faster while maintaining balance with the rest of the body.
