The team at Avenue clinic are trying to raise awareness of common sport injuries, injury prevention, when to seek treatment and the importance of rehab after injury.

As part of our Sports Injury Prevention Project, we have been contacting all the sports clubs to see if they are interested in us doing a free 20-minute presentation. The talk will be sport specific and we are providing each club with a free cold pack and information on stretching.

If you are interested in us coming to your club or have any questions, then please contact us for further details.

 

Latest Research News

Osteopathy:

A 12-week course of spinal manipulation had a statistically significant advantage over medication such as aspirin and ibuprofen in reducing self-reported pain after eight, 12, 26 and 52 weeks, according to the study, published in the Annals of Internal Medicine.

Kelston Chorley, Head of Professional Development at the British Osteopathic Association says: “These research findings are positive for individuals, employers and employees. Pain relief medication can be expensive and learning self-massage techniques mean individuals can be empowered to help manage their pain. Further, where medication is ineffective, this can result in ongoing problems that could have been resolved earlier and may even worsen as a result. This can mean people have to take time off work for extended periods.

“An osteopath will usually provide some initial treatment to help correct any underlying cause for the condition and will always provide self help strategies or neck pain so patients can manage their condition in the future.”

 

During 8 weeks, Osteopathic manipulative therapy applied 4 times led to clinically relevant positive changes in pain intensity and functional disability in women with postpartum Low back pain.
