About 95% of sporting injuries are minor soft tissue injuries and happen more with younger children who are less able to recognise the early signs of a strain.

Over 50% of sporting injuries can be resolved with self-care and little if any treatment, but around 10% need extensive treatment to ensure long term adaptations do not further stress the joint involved or the whole structural system. 

Typical injuries include:

  • Plantar fasciitis

  • Achilles tendinopathy

  • Repetitive strain injuries

  • Returning to sport post-injury

  • Rectus femoris strains and ruptures

  • Common swimming injuries
  • Posterior pelvic tilt injuries

  • Flexion related low back pain

  • Meniscus tears

  • Other overuse injuries

Gait analysis

This is probably one of the most underestimated areas of structural medicine, yet it is fundamental for the spine and associated joints to be in alignment. Typical causes of problems in this area are heavy school bags, sports bags, repetitive work working activities, driving or adaptations from a pre-existing injury.
