Swimmers

Typically, swimmers will twist their knees. This often occurs when they do not move their heads evenly to breathe during freestyle sessions. They may also over-kick their ankles, which may be injured especially in cold water. Osteopathic treatment will restore joint freedom while reducing twists and turns of the knees and lower back during tumble turns. We relieve soft tissue that is under strain, allowing it to recover.

Trampolinists

Trampolinists often land with their bodies slightly too far forward. This often occurs during seat drops, which may cause trampolinists to sprain their lower back. Their ankles may also suffer in the same way that gymnasts do in dismounts. The following may be experienced by trampolinists:

Shoulder Strains — It is important to treat shoulder strains early. When treated straight away, shoulders will respond to movements that restore the tracking of the shoulder’s ball joint. This will allow a normal negative pressure to replace excess fluid present in the damaged joint.

Treating the Injured Area

The body’s normal response to injury is for fluid to flood into the damaged area. This process is known as congestion and will be followed by inflammation of the injured area. There’s nothing to worry about, as this is a normal, healthy response to injury. Often occurring at the same time, repair and degeneration are determined by the degree of inflammation. Alongside painkillers, anti-inflammatories are often used to ease pressure and pain.

Treatment with Effective Results

While anti-inflammatories and painkillers alleviate pain, they do not qualify as treatment alone. Specialist techniques only practiced by an osteopath will restore the normal movements of the damaged area. Recovery is also dependent on the patient moving their body in the right way to free-up the strain and tension. When this is not practiced, the body will overcompensate by twisting and turning in the wrong area. This will diminish the athlete’s valuable energy and ability to perform or exert movement.
