Whether in professional sports or as a recreational athlete, osteopathic treatments should be a regular companion for every body-conscious athlete on his athletic career. Especially when preparations for competitions take place. Due to the increased training behaviour, the intensity and load on the body is increased exactly in these preparation times. Osteopathy for athletes can support the regeneration in the rest phases and at the same time the osteopathic treatment enables an effective counteraction in case of threatening overloads.
Osteopaths see the body as a holistic unit in which muscles, tendons, tissues and skeleton work together harmoniously. Osteopathy for athletes ensures, among other things, the harmonization of muscle and fascia function, in order to optimally design movement sequences for the athlete and reduce the risk of injury.
Should there be any injuries or even more serious injuries, osteopaths intervene with relieving techniques after the initial treatment.
Osteopathy focuses on bones, organs and tissue structures and their interaction. A foot consists of a total of 26 individual bones that are connected to each other. From an osteopathic point of view, disorders and injuries in one part of the foot also affect the other parts. More than 100 joints are united in the spinal column. They are connected by ligaments, tendons, muscles and nerves and are supplied by blood vessels. Thus, from an osteopathic point of view, there is also an exchange with internal organs. The approach of osteopathy offers holistic approaches, not only to focus on the musculo-skeletal system, but also to recognize dysfunctions of the organs and to harmonize and normalize them through mobilizing measures.
To optimise movement sequences in muscle and fascia function in order to reduce the risk of injury. In the case of injuries, to focus on the body as a whole in order to also recognise dysfunctions of the organs and to normalise them through mobilising measures.
OSTEOPATHY FOR ATHLETES - SENSIBLE AFTERCARE
After an injury, it's hard to get back to your old level of performance. Some athletes never quite make it back. In this area, too, osteopathy offers valuable approaches. No matter if it is a serious injury or a minor wound, it can still have an effect on the organism after it has healed. This is where the osteopath's approach comes in and asks important questions:
- How does the injury affect processes in the entire musculoskeletal system?
- Did the trauma change the suppleness in the fascia and ligament system?
- Are there already postures that lead to functional disorders?
- What other areas of the body are affected by the trauma?
Osteopathy for athletes intervenes there and promotes harmonious processes in the entire musculoskeletal system. At the same time, the osteopath gives valuable advice on how to control stress and training. He points out where exercises have a negative effect on still existing disorders and shows options, which movements support the further normalization. In this way, even recreational athletes can regain their former performance more quickly with the help of osteopathy.
I look forward to working with you!
