Sports injuries

Sports injuries can affect muscles, bones, ligaments, tendons, joints and cartilage and are causes by either repetitive strain or a sudden injury caused by sudden impact, an awkward or sudden movement or simply by not warming up properly.

At The Natural Practice we have a wide range of therapies that can help many sports injuries. Osteopathy is an effective therapy for the treatment of most musculoskeletal problems; Acupuncture is used to help alleviate pain and muscle spasms and reduce swelling around the joints; Sports Massage works on the soft tissue which will improve the blood flow to the muscles, relax areas of tension and improve flexibility.
