SPORTS MEDICINE, REHABILITATION & SPORTS INJURY TREATMENT SOLIHULL & BIRMINGHAM
At Dynamic Osteopaths our Specialist Registered Osteopaths provide excellent services in sports injury treatment and management within Solihull and Edgbaston Birmingham. Here our Osteopaths are highly experienced exercise professionals that understand the causes of sports injuries and how to manage them via addressing a multitude of related sports biomechanics.
Our specialists here at Dynamic Osteopaths in Solihull often see sports injuries that can be seen as either being acute or overuse injuries depending on the mechanical presentation and onset of symptoms. We see and treat a wide range of acute or chronic injuries that can be a result of trauma, equipment relation, or intrinsic factors such as ligaments, muscles, tendons, bursa or nerves. Injuries can also often include bone trauma, articular cartilage damage, joint pain, ligaments tears, muscular strains, contusions, cramps, tendon strains, bursa, and nerve injuries.
Overuse injuries that are seen at the at Dynamic Osteopaths often result from a sudden increase in training intensity, poor-fitting equipment, biomechanical alterations, muscle imbalances or leg length discrepancies. Injuries may include conditions like - Achilles tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, shin splints, tennis elbow, bone stress fractures, patella tendonitis, shoulder (rotator cuff) tendonitis, articular cartilage damage, muscle tears, bursitis, and back pain.
Our musculoskeletal Osteopaths have a very broad experienced background when assessing and treating pain and sports injuries. When looking into sports injuries, Mr Adam Whatley our clinical director assesses the body’s kinetic biomechanical chain, where every single functional human movement will involve a combination of joints and limbs in co-ordinated ways to perform complex tasks. These may include walking, running, kicking and many more.
For muscles to work together, this requires specific firing sequences and synergistic control factors, of which are assessed during a detailed assessment here at the Dynamic Osteopaths. Each sequence has its own basic organisation and has impacts on support and stability of segmental links. These combinations work to generate force and energy through each of the links, and efficiently transfer the force and energy to the terminal link. Injuries and adaptation patterns often occur in some areas of this kinetic chain and are often seen to cause problems elsewhere in the system, due to mechanisms of compensation. These changes result in anatomical or biomechanical alterations that increase the risk of injury and/or decrease performance. An example would be a racket player with decreased back mobility can increase the risk of overuse of the shoulder muscles. Effective rehabilitation protocols would aim at balancing these issues.
Mr Adam Whatley is a very experienced Sports Osteopath, who from past experiences in the clinical setting, has gained a huge interest in the area of sports medicine & performance, advanced human kinematics (movement patterns), and clinical neurology, in addition to neuro-musculoskeletal rehabilitation. Within his area of clinical practice, he works in the diagnosis and treatment of neuro-musculoskeletal conditions, dysfunction and clinical medicine.
