Can Osteopathy Help with Sports Injuries?

Along with structural and cranial treatment, we can help you identify triggers to your headaches and establish strategies that can help you cope between your osteopathic treatments.

Osteopathy offers effective relief from headaches and migraines by employing targeted manual techniques to address musculoskeletal tension, improve blood flow, and alleviate associated triggers, promoting lasting relief and a reduction in the frequency and intensity of headaches.

Osteopathy treatments offer a holistic approach to addressing and alleviating various types of headaches, providing relief for individuals experiencing tension headaches, sinus headaches, cluster headaches, and migraines.

Osteopathic Treatment

Treatment for pain caused by sports-related injuries begins with a thorough case history and assessment of your lifestyle and specific symptoms to determine the underlying cause of your pain. Your  Osteopath practitioner will conduct specific tests and discuss your treatment options.

Your Personalized Treatment Plan

After a complete assessment, your practitioner will provide you with an individualized treatment program, which may include a combination of manual therapies, lifestyle recommendations, and patient education. Your plan may also include stretches and exercises you can perform from the comfort of your own home, so you can remain proactive during your recovery. In some cases, a referral to a specialist may be required.

Your First Treatment

During your first appointment, your practitioner will aim to provide gentle manual treatment to help alleviate your symptoms of pain and discomfort.

My athletic journey encompasses a diverse range of events, such as the Kathmandu Coast to Coast, Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge, Taupo Half Ironman, Ironman Canada, Ironman USA, and the World Championship Duathlon in Germany as part of the Age Group Team Canada. Additionally, I’ve successfully completed eight international marathons, including the prestigious 100th Anniversary Boston Marathon.

My firsthand experiences in the world of athletics have equipped me with valuable insights into the intricacies of movement and recovery. I am eager to share practical tips that can inspire you to either resume or sustain your favorite activities. Moreover, I am committed to collaborating with you to optimize your movement capabilities, ensuring that you perform at your absolute best. Whether you’re aiming for a personal best or overcoming a setback, let’s work together to enhance your well-being and achieve your athletic goals.

Due to an acute shoulder injury I had to seek an Osteopath. I was recommended Gracela by a friend. After 4 sessions with her I was able to use my shoulder again. The examination, manipulation, and exercises were fantastic. So, if you find yourself like I was, then I can highly recommend Gracela, as my friend did for me.
