Sports Injuries

Physical activity is essential to our health and well-being. However, strenuous physical activity can sometimes result in sporting injuries.

Sports injuries are seen daily in the Governing Function Osteopathy clinic and are among the most common reasons people seek osteopathic care. The osteopath at Governing Function is highly skilled at treating musculoskeletal sporting injuries.

If you’ve recently picked up a sports injury, or if you’ve been suffering with a recurring injury for a while – it can be very tempting to try and ignore the pain and pass it off as “nothing serious” and simply “get on with it” trying to push through and carrying on as best you can, however, this could lead to something more serious.

Alternatively, sports injuries are very easy to be disheartened by and can lead to negative emotions surrounding your sporting future wondering if you’ll ever be able to get back to playing sports or keeping active like you were once able.

Our priority is to check if there is any serious structural damage that would require external imaging or medical help such as a dislocation or fracture.

However, in the absence of serious structural damage here at Governing Function, we will not only be able to treat your:

  • Tendonitis
  • Sports Injuries
  • Bursitis
  • Strains & Sprain
  • Rehabilitation Post Surgery
  • Ligament Damage

But will additionally be able to improve the way your body functions and improve your performance whether you are a recreational sports player or an elite level athlete by providing the best up-to-date osteopathic manual therapy, education and advice, and a personalised rehabilitation and strengthening program.
