Sports activities are a regular way of life for many of us, involving people across all ages. Many injuries are the result of overuse or incorrect body use or equipment. Young people are vulnerable in sport as their growing bodies are often expected to perform to high standards and are putting exceptional physical demands on themselves.
Osteopaths critically analyze the complex mechanical and functional components of all sports activities both indoors and outdoors and the training regimes. Problems and injuries often occur due to poor gait or use, over training, poor flexibility and poor equipment. These can all eventually affect the degree of performance and safety of the sport.
