Osteopathy Treats Martial Arts Injuries

Risk of Martial Arts Injuries is due to the physical nature of martial arts. However, by making good choices in your training and other exercises, you can limit the number and severity of such injuries.

Typical martial arts injuries are:

Elbow problems from snapping the elbow into extension. Some kicks with the outside of the foot might cause outer lower leg (peroneal) muscle strains.

Medial knee pain from side and round the head kicks.

Hip strains from kicking. Judo and wrestling may produce a pectoral strain were the powerful adduction forces are resisted by the opponent.

Additionally you can speed recovery by Osteopathy treatment and rehabilitation when injury occurs.

All Martial Arts styles are considered and treated including: Aikido, Capoeira, Jeet Kune Do, Ju Jitsu, Judo, Karate, Kendo, Kickboxing, Kung Fu, Muay Thai, Tae Kwon Do, Wing Chun.
