How Swansea Body Kinetics can help

At Swansea Body Kinetics our practitioners are all experienced sportspeople. James is a semi-professional rugby player, Kayleigh is an ex GB swimmer and Rosie has her own aerial arts studio. We know what it’s like when you love sport but your body lets you down. It makes us passionate about helping you pinpoint your injury, get rid of the pain, rehabilitate effectively and return to your sport stronger than ever.

In order to get back to enjoying your sport, you need to resolve the pain or discomfort of the injury and then undergo effective rehabilitation. It is very important that you do not miss out on this stage of your recovery. This is because, if you don’t fully encourage your injury to recover, you may re-injure yourself – we all have that one friend who is always turning their ankles, right? Slowly over time, this can lead to further chronic problems, and you may end up giving up your sport altogether.

The experienced osteopaths and soft tissue therapists at Swansea Body Kinetics are committed to seeing an injury through from the hands-on treatment stage to full rehabilitation and return to activity. Book below with one of our osteopaths (James or Rosie) today to start on your journey to recovery.

How Osteopathy can help

Osteopathic treatment is specific to you as an individual. It aims to deal with the origin of your pain rather than just covering up the symptoms.

After an initial consultation to determine the root cause of your problem, we use a variety of techniques that aim to resolve the initial cause and to tackle any other factors that may be causing your symptoms.

What is involved 

Treatment involves manipulation, massage and articulation (gentle movement) of the joints to release restrictions, to  decrease excessive muscular tightness or spasm and to encourage good movement and function of the joints involved. This promotes the healing and health of the problematic area by ensuring adequate blood supply, drainage and movement.

Session length

Face to face appointments are 35 minutes long, online appointments are 30 minutes long. For your initial appointment, you will be sent a pre-treatment questionnaire which gathers important details about your medical history and the problem you are calling in for.

Treatment length

The average number of treatments with an osteopath is between 3-5, however, it does very much depend upon the person and the problem they have. For example, if you have to keep doing something in work that sets off your issue, you may need more sessions.

Don’t just put up with pain…

There is no reason why you should put up with discomfort when help is at hand

Great treatment, works wonders for any niggles or problems I have. My shoulders needed a fair bit of work due to general tightness and years of neglect. within two treatments the difference has been significant when testing and retesting but the difference how I felt lifting was huge. Very precise and knowledgeable in treating to the root of the issue and correcting it, very professional and super friendly. Going to be getting treatments on a monthly basis to keep me moving well.
