Sports Injuries

“Treat and prevent INJURY, maintain peak PERFORMANCE”

At Yarra Osteopathy we see athletes of all ages and abilities. Whether it’s AFL, tennis, golf or basketball, we can help you maintain peak performance in your chosen sport.

Some examples of common injuries we deal with are:

  • Ankle sprains
  • Hamstring strains or tears
  • Low back injuries
  • Stress fractures in runners
  • Runners knee
  • Tennis or golfers elbow
  • And many more…

Injury: Harmed, damage or impaired.

Osteopathy works beautifully with the bodies natural healing abilities to not only treat the area affected (e.g. torn hamstring) but to also address the underlying issues that predisposed the injury (e.g. tightness in the low back and imbalance in the knee and pelvis). We will treat the problem and provide you with rehab to prevent recurrence.

Performance: To accomplish or fulfill an action, task or function.

When performing sport at any level, maintaining peak performance is essential. Through thorough assessment and treatment we can manage acute injuries, provide ongoing rehab and ensure you are always performing at your peak level.

At Yarra Osteopathy we also use a range of rehab equipment to get you back on track. We stock foam rollers, spiky balls and a range of braces for our patients.
