What is Rehabilitation?
Sports, post surgical and general rehabilitation are addressed at the practice. Following an injury, once the local area is treated rehabilitation may be
given, particularly if the problem is over 3 weeks old. Research has shown that there may be an absence or dampening down of key skills, such as,
force, flexibility,co-ordination,balance,endurance.Unless this is undertaken a reoccurrence of the initial injury may take place. The osteopath will
encourage the patient to improve these skills. A principle based approach is adopted rather than a rigid protocol.This encourages a high level of
creativity on the part of the practioner and a challenging environment for the client.
