Osteopaths at The Chandos Clinic feel strongly that osteopathy can be hugely beneficial to sports people to help their injuries and aid performance, so the news that osteopaths are being recruited for the 2012 London Games is wonderful news. We hope that this move helps to raise public awareness about the potential benefits of osteopathy within the world of sport.
The British Osteopathy Association has this to say on their website, you can visit them online for more words on this subject.......
‘This is the first time that osteopathy has been included in the host medical services provision at an Olympic and Paralympic Games. Osteopaths will be working alongside sports medicine doctors, physiotherapists, chiropractors, sports massage practitioners and podiatrists treating the elite athletes’.
You can visit The Osteopathic Sports Care Association website for further information on how osteopathy may be able to help a sport related injury or issue.
The Chandos Clinic is in the process of producing an ‘Osteopathy for Sports Injury’ leaflet so as to give our patients better information.
