Sports "Tune-Up"

The "Tune-Up" is a treatment designed by osteopath Torben Hersborg to:

1) Free up restricted joints:
Joints that are not moving 100% freely will slow you down and require more muscular effort and energy, therefore tiring you more.
Your potentionally full range of movement will not be achieved neither.
2) Stimulate relevant muscle groups:
Muscles that are not relaxed and alert will not react fast and explosive but will be more prone to injury and consume excessive energy.
Tight muscles will also reduce your range of movement.
3) Free up the diaphragm:
A tight diaphragm will restrict your breathing, hence reducing your oxygen intake and adversedly affect your performance and recovery.
4) Connect the body:
One part of the body, that doesn't function optimally can affect other areas e.g.: A little neck restriction, irritating the motor fibres of the nerves that supply the arm can reduce the responce of the target muscles as far away as the fingers.
Muscle chains are muscles which enhance (or reduce) other muscles eg: Postural muscles in the neck can affect postural muscles in the lower back, so a lower back weakness can be caused by a muscular tension in the neck.
In the normal gait pattern, the arm swing is chained to the leg swing, so a shoulder problem can affect the hip (and vice versa) through a faulty muscle chain.
5) Target known weaknesses and areas prone to injury:
Have you got any known weaknesses or injury prone areas special attention will be given to this.

Let our specialists help you with your back pain, headache and other pains and aches.
