Sports Injuries

The British Medical Association’s guidance for general practitioners states that doctors can safely refer patients to osteopaths. Paul Brooks is an Osteopath in Hull, working from clinics in Hessle, Hull and Cottingham

Many sports injuries are the result of overuse i.e. playing too hard and too often e.g. tennis elbow and golfer’s elbow; from not warming up properly, or from not warming down after exercise.

Reduced joint flexibility will affect the degree of performance and may result in injury if the player is unaware that they cannot perform to the same level as they once did, for example golfers who cannot turn at the waist as well as they used to, or the over-enthusiastic older footballer.

By using their knowledge of diagnosis and highly developed palpatory skills osteopaths can help to restore structural balance, improve joint mobility and reduce adhesions and soft tissue restrictions so that ease of movement is restored and performance enhanced.
