Rehabilitation

Rehabilitation is fundamental to our Sports Clinic.

The amount of time it takes for a patient to recover is dependent on the severity and nature of the injury and the structures affected (for example bones, muscles, tendons or ligaments).

Keen athletes often return to their chosen sport too early, posing the potential risk of further serious injury. Our osteopaths can provide professional advice to help ensure a measured and controlled return to fitness, to eliminate these risks.

Sometimes rehabilitation may require the use of strapping the prescription of resistance and stretching exercises, depending on the nature of the injury.

Overall management includes relaxation techniques, as well as advice on contrast bathing (cold and hot), nutrition, anti-inflammatory drugs and the motivation to regain full fitness.

Communication with a team manager or coach is advised throughout the recovery period.

With a naturopathic approach to osteopathy, the BCOM Clinic can address many factors that influence the individual’s performance, including stress, nutrition and sleep patterns.

A sports osteopath is specially trained to identify, diagnose and treat a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions, specifically related to sports injuries.

Our team have an extensive knowledge of both physiology and anatomy, allowing us to diagnose the issue and provide a bespoke treatment plan. The aim of this is to help our patients manage their symptoms or prevent further injuries.

Our osteopaths work with our patients to find the best treatment plan to suit their needs. This could be a single appointment every few months to keep the presenting symptoms at bay or a regular course of appointments may be recommended. To minimise the risk of injuries occurring, we provide a host of treatments, from physical therapy and deep tissue massage to joint manipulation to improve mobility.
