Osteopathy is an ideal treatment for most sports injuries, whether you are an enthusiastic amateur or an elite professional. Regular exercise benefits almost everyone but unfortunately can sometimes result in injuries that prevent individuals from enjoying and continuing with their activity and can reduce optimum performance.
Sports osteopathy looks at injury prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation. It is appropriate for those with acute or chronic injuries, regular exercisers or those wishing to begin an exercise programme. Even if you are in doubt of the severity of your injury, it is important to have the problem assessed and treated before a mild twinge becomes a major issue.
As well as treating common sports injuries, osteopathy can help with functional complaints such as reduced joint flexibility or mechanical limitation that may limit performance potential. By addressing the biomechanics of the restricted area, performance and enjoyment of your sport can be greatly enhanced.
Our team, with Katie being an ex P.E teacher and Doug a past national ju jitsu champion, have a great understanding of the world of sport and the need to get you back to your chosen activity, whatever the level, as quickly and safely as possible.

- Fitness Friday - Instagram vs reality!One of the osteopathic principles is “Structure governs function”.Tried my winter trained Peleton legs out today for the first time since Autumn. Castle Combe looked beautiful and so good for the soul to get out in this fab weather. Of course I practiced what I preach before setting off - tennis balled the gluts, foam rollered the quads and some good lower back stretches to get my creaky spine ready for action. Felt surprisingly good.! Maybe next time we’ll be allowed to stop for a bite to eat. 😊 #feelinggood #wiltshirecountryside #castlecombevillage #cyclefit #osteotips👍🏽 #peletonbike #practicewhatyoupreach #osteopathyforsports #osteopathybath #osteopathywiltshire #lightattheendofthetunnelFitness Friday! Following on from last week’s post - a great way in which we can progressively overload is to increase the volume of our training. This can be done in many different ways:Brighter days ahead! We hope you’re all enjoying the sunshine! Remember we are still open throughout the roadmap out of lockdown and we are still wearing full PPE and thoroughly cleaning the clinic between each patient!Caught up with my lovely friend Fran, during a social distancing walk this week, who is involved in this great health education project. BIRD is committed to encouraging greater public awareness of bone and joint disease ( not just effecting the elderly) and helping patients, their friends, families and colleagues to understand their conditions. Couldn’t wait to share this with my patients . #jointawareness #healtheducationworks #spreadingtheword #rheumatoidarthritis #psoriaticarthritisawareness #osteoporosis #bathinstituteforrheumaticdisease#osteopathyforempowerment #osteopathybath #osteopathywiltshire
