Osteopathy and Physiotherapy plays an integral part in the management of any injury sustained through sport. The goal is to treat and fully rehabilitate the athlete’s post-injury, or post-operatively – to prevent further damage and to return the athlete to full function in the shortest possible time. At City Osteopathy and Physiotherapy, we regularly treat sports injuries to a high standard.

We have a wealth of experience working with:

  • International rugby players
  • Professional football players
  • Olympic and Paralympic athletes
  • Club level and amateur competitions
  • Triathletes and weekend warriors

Our therapists possess diverse areas of sports-specific knowledge of:

  • Competitive rugby
  • Football
  • Weight lifting
  • Sailing
  • Hockey
  • Boxing including Muay Thai kickboxing
  • Wake-boarding
  • Marathons
  • ‘Overhead’ games (tennis, badminton, cricket, water polo, netball, basketball, throwing)
  • Ballet and contemporary dance
  • Gymnastics

Return to sport too soon can lead to a backward step in progress and eventually lead to even more time on the sidelines. It is important to have an individually planned rehabilitation program that works through the steps of proprioception, stretching, strengthening and eventually, go back to playing sport. Sport-specific exercises, correction of muscle imbalance, taping and strapping, and a home exercise program is often indicated.

It is obvious that prevention is better than cure and the therapist will always advise the patient on how to prevent recurrence of the injury upon return to sport. The underlying principle behind our treatment for all patients is to treat the cause, not just the symptoms. By visiting our sports injury clinic in Singapore, patients can then return to optimal function as quickly as possible with the minimum risk of recurrence.
