Osteopathy can address any sift tissue problems throughout the body. Your osteopath will be able to assess and find muscular dysfunction that may be caused by the daily demands you place on your body or an injury you may have obtained from either a fall, overstretch or following vigorous exercise. Your osteopath may treat soft tissue problems with a variety of techniques however for this type of dysfunction sports massage is usually the most direct approach.

Sports massage is the manipulation of soft tissue to improve performance and endurance, preventing injuries and loss of joint mobility in potential trouble spots. The osteopath explores the tissue, working deep into the muscle to stretch and loosen tight or knotted fibres, increasing blood and oxygen supply, improving flexibility and relieving pain caused by most muscular injuries. Manipulation of injured tissue prevents adhesions forming and creating scar tissue, resulting in a faster return to activity.
