Risk Factors Contributing to Overuse Injuries In Sports

Intrinsic (Anatomical)

* Musculoskeletal malalignment

(Note: Osteopathic manipulation is a valuable tool for
the prevention and treatment of sports injuries.Ensuring
that the body’s musculoskeletal system is in proper
balance and alignment can prevent injuries. Once an injury
has taken place, it is wise to be evaluated and treated
osteopathically to quicken healing time, prevent chronic
injuries and help the young athletes reach their fullest
potential and enjoy all of their sports endeavors.)
