Preventing Injuries for the Fall Sporting Season

Many fall sports will kick off in the next few weeks, so consider some of these pointers to decrease the risk of injury which will keep athletes out of rehab and on the field!

A study was conducted that evaluated the effectiveness of preventive strategies and drew conclusions on the best practice for injury prevention. This study reviewed 154 clinical papers and found that preseason conditioning and education were the best protective tactics to fight in-season injuries. 

Concussions and Osteopathy

~ Graham Wiltshire, CAT(C), CSCS, DOMP (Thesis Writer)

I have been an Athletic Therapist for almost 17 years and treating osteopathically for 10 years. I have worked at all levels of sports from amateur to professional and have seen the trauma that causes concussions as well as treated people who have suffered from the effects of post-concussion syndrome.

While it has become common knowledge that concussions occur in sports, we are now recognizing that they occur, with increasing frequency, to the general public.
