Low Back Pain • Sports injuries

Many sports injuries affect the back and, conversely, the back can be the underlying cause of many sports injuries.

Drysdale Osteopathy, Sports Injuries, Back Pain, Rugby, FootballRugby and Football players all know people who have suffered hamstring and groin injuries, and treatment often concentrates on the site of injury.

When the lower back is examined, it often becomes apparent that the injury stems from the back.

This may sound far fetched, but these muscles are controlled from the back. If there any problems in the lower back these muscle groups will tighten up.

It is difficult to stretch muscles when they are receiving the wrong signals from higher up in the nervous system.

Sports people are dynamic, and injuries that cause pain in one place often have their source in another area.

In sports injuries, it is vital to examine the body from head to toe, looking for all the contributing factors.

When treated in this manner the real source of the pain will likely be found.
