Muscle injuries are very common in members of the sporting population. These can range from a simple strain to tears and rupturing of the muscle tissue. It is important in these situations to establish the level of injury to the tissue, i.e. a simple strain that will recover in a week, to a tear that may require some weeks/months to heal and also require a more concerted treatment and rehabilitation plan.
How we fix Muscle Injuries
As Osteopaths we look at the broader biomechanical picture in these situations. We do this to assess if the symptomatic tissue is having undue stress placed upon it due to surrounding imbalances or aberrant biomechanical patterns. This can be important to reduce the probability of repeated episodes of tissue failure in these areas.
