There are various streams of treatment within osteopathy with sports osteopathy being our focus in this insight. At Melbourne Osteopathic Clinic we have a vast experience and knowledge in sports and specifically sports osteopathy and exercise rehabilitation.
Over the years our Osteopaths across both our Melbourne Central and Docklands clinics have had an influence in the elite sports careers of both men and women, treating athletes from a range of sporting teams including the Western Bulldogs, Geelong Cats. Hawthorn Hawks, North Melbourne Kangaroos as well as A-League giants Melbourne Victory and Melbourne City. Our Osteopaths become a part of an integral team of other health professionals that aim to assist in recovery and performance to allow of athletes to allow them to get the best out of themselves.
How does Sports Osteopathy differ? Well much like all of Osteopathy we are looking for the source of pain not just treating where you are sore. A reoccurring hamstring injury may be related to your hip or knee or low back. Our Osteopaths have the experience to identify this and help to get you back on the field for stronger and for longer.
Does this mean the everyday suburban athlete or weekend warrior can benefit from sports osteopathy? Absolutely yes you can! We treat every individual that comes to the clinics differently but ultimately with the same goal in mind – to allow you to Move Better, Feel Better, Be Better.
