Sporting Injuries

Whether you’re a budding star, elite sportsperson or MAMIL (Middle Aged Man In Lycra) you’re a chance of suffering a sports injury. Sporting injuries can be successfully treated by our team at Fisher Demirov Osteopaths, Ringwood.

Common complaints as Osteopaths we see are the clinic attributed to sporting involvements include:

  • Whiplash
  • Rotator cuff sprain/strains/tears
  • Muscle strains (including hamstring and calf tears)
  • Shin splints
  • Patella tracking dysfunction.
  • Tendonitis and Tendinopathy
  • Ankle injuries

These injuries are best addressed first by accurate diagnosis and treatment as joint injections and pain killers may only mask the problem. Unless you deal directly with the cause of your problem, further injury and joint degeneration may result.

We use a variety of hands-on techniques including, massage, stretching, MET/PNF, gentle articulation and manipulation to achieve the desired result.  We will also advise on home rehabilitation and posture to maintain positive changes following treatment.  We suggest working with your coaches and trainers to help facilitate a careful, responsible and successful return to your sport.
