Patrice Bélanger, OD, sports osteopath: “A person usually chooses a treatment according to their needs. A chiropractor for manipulation, a dietitian for a diet plan , a massage therapist for a massage. I try to provide the right treatment depending on the problem . If the client needs nutritional advice , I give it . If the client needs information on exercises or on how to improve his performance , I provide the information . If he needs to learn how to correct an imbalance of a shoulder, I teach him. I attempt to give the right treatment depending on the problem and not tying the client in on a predefined treatment plan in advance.”  * If you require a test and / or a medical diagnosis , please consult a doctor. Medical monitoring is always recommended .  Exception :For those who wish to receive 2 or 3 treatments and then return as needed, it is possible to adapt to this kind of situation. These are often people who have consulted various types of therapists,  such as chiropractors, physiotherapists , massage therapists, doctors, naturopaths , etc. for years. These people know their state of health and consult when they feel the need . There are clients who consult about 2-3 times a year on a regular basis.

There are many types of sports pain. They often come from exertion injuries. However, there is other pain that is caused by muscle and / or tendon and / or ligament and / or joint fatigue. This type of pain often occurs for no apparent reason . Also, due to this fatigue, the athlete gets hurt more easily during exercise. It is frequently caused by being overweight , out of shape, having poor posture/habit while playing, excessive training, repetitive movements , etc. .

In the majority of issues addressed , the person continues to practice his sport. He gradually regains his stamina in the sport as the recovery takes place . A follow up with the osteopath is very important to manage the healing process. Monitoring also helps to avoid any errors that may delay the recovery by a few weeks .

From the first consultation, the client is actively involved in his osteopathic process as indicated by the recommendations received. The client exercises at home in a manner specific to his problem which increases the speed of recovery . This has the effect of significantly diminishing recovery time and dramatically reducing the number of sessions at the clinic.

Also, a follow up with the sports professional is always advisable .
