Whether you are training for a specific goal, or just like kicking a ball around with the kids in the weekend, sporting injuries can and do happen.
Participation in sporting activities has many benefits. However, as well as all the benefits comes a greater degree of load, exertion and strain. Many sporting injuries are often due to overuse issues associated with training. Occasionally, incorrect or ill-fitting equipment can cause problems.
At Knights Osteopathy, as well as working to resolve your injury, we aim to prevent further injury and ensure you can get back to the sport you love with a tailored rehabilitation exercise prescription. We also aim to show you how you can improve your performance and reduce the likelihood of re-injury.
