These injuries results from exercise and sporting activities. They range from common minor injuries (i.e. joint sprains, muscle strains, bumps, bruises, scrapes and blisters) to major injuries (i.e. Broken bones, dislocated joints, concussion/contusion, torn tendons/ligament and damaged nerves) which may require immediate/serious medical attention. Probably the most common complaint will be joint and/or muscle pain due to strain to specific structures I or around them (skin, muscles, tendons, ligaments bone and cartilage). As you can imagine they vary greatly from sport to sport depending on fitness levels, training and what is required from the athlete and their body whilst participating. Examples of sport specific injuries would be shoulder injuries in cricket from high intensity over-arm throws, elbow pain in tennis from repetitive and strong griping the racket in play, low back pain in golf from the twisting motion of the torso, knee and ankle pain in football from high speed/sudden movements from keeping up with play and neck and back pain in rugby from high intensity impacts from tackles and in the scrum. Physical treatment in our sessions will help you manage your pain and our exercise advice will help to prevent it from recurring again because once you understand the demands put on your body from the sport you play and how you are playing it you can then actively prevent further injuries and focus on raising your game!
Is best described as pain that an individual may develop from wear and tear from repeated or serious injuries as well as through the years as people age. It does occur naturally over time as people grow older so it goes without saying that it is very common in the ageing population of the United Kingdom. There is often times a lot of contributing factors to this common ailment such as the type of occupation or sports that the person has done through the year, as well as health conditions and injuries that have happened in their medical history (i.e. Arthritis). These problems may persist for long periods of time and may affect the person’s quality of life in some cases. The majority of the less serious cases are treatable with physical therapy that you can get from our osteopathic team, in other instances a referral to a doctor may be needed for surgical intervention (i.e. Hip replacement). Generally speaking keeping active and healthy through a good diet and regular exercise can help prevent a lot of these issues and help in the treatment of problems that may already exist. It is also advisable to go for regular health checks and seek help for any ongoing issues. Our team can provide both of these while treating your degenerative pain issues and in some cases refer you to the most suitable medical professional for you.
