Weekend Courier - - Front Page -

NEXT week is Os­teopa­thy Aware­ness Week and lo­cal os­teopath Flo­rian Schulze is en­cour­ag­ing res­i­dents to ex­plore other op­tions to treat their ails.

The week runs from April 15 to 21 and the fo­cus is on pre­vent­ing and man­ag­ing sport­ing in­juries.

Dr Schulze is a fully qual­i­fied and na­tion­ally reg­is­tered os­teopath op­er­at­ing in Rock­ing­ham and Fre­man­tle.

He said with the Com­mon­wealth Games wind­ing up soon, many have been in­spired to give sports a go.

“We are en­cour­ag­ing peo­ple to give sports a go while pre­vent­ing sport­ing in­juries at the same time,” he said.

He said it was a drug-free ther­apy for in­jury and could be used as a pre­ven­ta­tive d481631 mea­sure to pre­pare the body when tran­si­tion­ing be­tween sports.

“The tech­nique in­cludes stretches, mas­sage and mo­bil­i­sa­tion of spe­cific joints and soft tis­sues to main­tain op­ti­mum phys­i­cal con­di­tion,” Dr Schulze said. “It of­ten in­volves re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion, life­style ad­vice and education where ap­pro­pri­ate.”
