Osteopathy and Sport

Osteopathy and Sport


Whether you are a weekend warrior or an elite athlete, our osteopaths may assist with many sporting injuries including:

  • Knee, leg and ankle injuries
  • Hip and pelvic injuries
  • Neck and back strains
  • Shoulder, elbow and wrist injuries

Osteopathic treatment aims to maintain joint and muscle flexibility and improve strength and endurance to maximise your performance and prevent sporting injuries. If you do become injured, our osteopaths aim to minimise compensatory strains from occurring and minimise re-injury to facilitate a quicker return to optimal function and physical activity.

Sport and Children

Sport and exercise place high demands on the growing bodies of children and osteopathic management may assist in optimising mobility, strength and balance. We may also provide nutritional advice along with strategies and exercises to assist your child to stay active and avoid further injury. Children should be cared for by professionals who are fully aware of the needs of young growing bodies.
