Most injuries do not happen with a single traumatic event. Factors which predispose us to injury are usually to do with our posture and lifestyle. Most of us will be relatively sedentary in between intense bursts of activity training in the gym or on a sports ground at the weekend. The fact that most sports injuries are on lower limbs, probably reflects that most sports involve running. Running injuries are particularly common.
At Magdalen Health we enable you to achieve your individual optimum level of function, regardless of age and sporting activity.
Not only do we treat you, we give you plenty of advice on various exercises to help improve all round function of the body, movement and decreased pain. We also clearly explain to you why you get injured and how you can prevent the symptoms from returning in the future.
We have an experienced team of specialists. We treat injuries from rugby, football, running, cycling, rowing and dancing to name a few, at elite level as well as amateur local level.
We recommend if you do exercise on a regular basis, especially intensive bursts of exercise, to at least come in for a sports massage regularly if not a maintenance treatment/check up with one of our osteopaths. This will help you increase your performance as well as help preventing future injuries. You get your car serviced regularly so that you can go from A to B without breaking down, so why not get yourself serviced regularly, you will feel better for it!
