Sports injury therapy services provide specialized treatment and rehabilitation to athletes, focusing on restoring function, mobility, and strength while ensuring a safe return to their sport.
Focus on your Rehabilitation
Your first appointment will be no different from the usual osteopathic consultation and evaluation (see osteopathy page). You will be asked specific questions related to your particular sport or even to demonstrate some movements. Your diagnosis and treatment plan will be discussed in the usual way. Treatment is likely to involve the use of osteopathic techniques within the treatment room combined with a more specific exercise based program in the studio gym. The aim is to return to full physical activity.

Are sports injuries covered under health insurance plans?
Workplace injuries are typically covered by workers’ compensation insurance rather than regular health insurance plans. Workers’ compensation is a specific type of insurance designed to provide medical care, rehabilitation, and financial assistance for employees who suffer work-related injuries or illnesses, ensuring they receive appropriate support during their recovery process.
Does sports injury rehabilitation cause discomfort?
Sports injury rehabilitation may cause some discomfort as it often involves exercises and therapies aimed at restoring function, mobility, and strength in athletes. However, the objective is to promote healing and a safe return to sports. It’s essential for patients to communicate any discomfort with their healthcare providers, allowing for adjustments to be made to ensure an effective and comfortable rehabilitation process.
Is there only one type of sports injury rehabilitation?
No, there are multiple types of sports injury rehabilitation, depending on the specific injury, its severity, and the athlete’s needs. These may include physical therapy, strength and conditioning exercises, proprioceptive training, manual therapy, and sport-specific functional training. A tailored rehabilitation program is typically developed by healthcare professionals to ensure a safe and effective recovery for the athlete.
