Sports injuries are diverse in terms of mechanism of injury, how they present in individuals and how the injury should be managed.

They can be categorised by:

  1. Sudden injury which is the result of a sudden impact, awkward movement or accident.
  2. Overuse injury which develop over time as a result of overusing certain parts of the body or poor technique or inadequate equipment.

Affected areas include:


Some of the conditions we treat that may be related to minor sports injuries are:

  • generalised aches and pains
  • joint pains
  • headaches arising from the neck (cervicogenic)
  • frozen shoulder / shoulder and elbow pain / tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis) arising from associated musculoskeletal conditions of the back and neck, but not isolated occurrences. 
  • cramp
  • lumbago
  • sciatica
  • muscle spasms
  • neuralgia ( nerve pain )

“We look at the body in health as meaning harmony and perfection not in one part but in the whole.” (Alexander Taylor Still, the first osteopath 1828-1917)

This is the very ethos of osteopathy. We are trained to look at you as a whole person. Of course we will deal with the damaged tissue but why did you get injured in the first place? Are you overtraining, what’s your approach to training, what’s your goal, what have you done in the past and what injuries have you previously had? It’s like a jigsaw puzzle, or a game of cluedo…we love it!
