Life is already busy enough, and complicating it with physical pain can be overwhelming. An injury can impact your goals, performance, and training schedule. Whether you are experiencing sharp pain from a recent injury or a niggling pinch or weakness from an old one. It can be challenging to get your head in the game when your thoughts are stuck on the same track: Pain, Pain, Pain.And let’s be honest, injuries can impact your performance but can also stop you from doing the things that help you relax and rewind.

Like everyone else, athletes also experience injuries or illnesses. However, the goal of treatment is different for you compared to others. Why? Because athletes or weekend warriors push their body to perform either in boot camp, fun run, swim race or more. No matter what exercise you do, your goal is to achieve your best results. Therefore, your Osteopath will be providing evidence-based and specialised support to develop an individual and sports-orientated management plan. This plan focuses on your activity level and training regime to ensure optimal performance.
How can our Osteopath work with you and your Sports Injury?
At Mana Health Clinic, the focus is to understand the cause of your pain, how it is impacting you and to develop strategies that may decrease the pain and strengthen your body to overcome it.
By doing an in-depth interview and physical assessment, your Osteopath may identify the predisposing factors of your injury, any other health related issues and most importantly your goals, to develop a tailored plan that may assist you on the road of recovery.
Osteopaths use exercise, movement and hands-on treatment that may help people of all ages to maintain their health and fitness, recover from injury and reduce pain.
Therefore, you can expect your Osteopath to use specific evidence-based sports performance advice, education and rehabilitation into all aspects of your life.
