The safe way of training
Injuries are common in sport. Sometimes they arise in training from poor technique, at others they are as a result of the enthusiastic overloading of an existing system, of doing things you are not quite fit for yet. Osteopathy works to adapt the person to their environment and to modify the loads the environment places on the individual.
Some of your ability in sport is innate, that sport just suits you, mentally and physically. Most ability though requires input and effort. Osteopathy can help you get better at sports, not just by helping you recover from sport related injury but by improving your ability to adapt to the demands of your sport so you can continue to train healthily.
That way you get to reap the benefits of good health while taxing your body with the demands of the sports that were supposed to get you fit in the first place.
