Osteopath for sports in Versailles

A sports osteopath in Versailles to treat athletes:

For a few years, your osteopath ran at the national level in two disciplines: cross country and 1500 m. She understands the demands of training, the search for performance and the right level. Following numerous injuries, Marie Messager was led to consult an osteopath who put her back on her feet a few days before the French championships. It is thanks to this meeting that she decided to work to help athletes and thus became a sports osteopath. Practicing running, swimming, jumping rope, volleyball, rollerblading, hiking, biking, etc., your osteopath understands the daily life of a sportsman and will be able to advise you at best to prevent and treat injuries as well as to improve the performance of each one.

Why consult a sports osteopath in Versailles in the Yvelines?

Main reasons for consultation:

The reasons for consultation are very vast in this field, we can consult for a joint, ligament, muscle or tendon problem.
Here are the main ones found in sports osteopathy:

Consult an osteopath in Versailles in the Yvelines after a trauma:

Short, medium and long term sprain

Many people are unaware that the osteopath has a place in the immediate management of a sprain. This allows to save a considerable amount of time in the recovery of the athlete. Of course the short, medium and long term management is very different. If your osteopath feels the need, he or she will refer you to your doctor for further tests. 

3 months after an operation or a fracture

With the exception of kinesiotaping, which can be done immediately to improve drainage, osteopaths do not treat patients less than 3 months after an operation or a fracture. A treatment with your physiotherapist is possible and is often highly recommended, but no osteopathy within 3 months!

An osteopathy consultation in Versailles for prevention:

Even if you don't feel any pain, it doesn't mean that everything is fine. The body is well designed and adapts when faced with an imbalance. The body sets up compensation strategies that last more or less time. You can therefore spend several months or years before the problem occurs. But as your life goes on, you undergo small traumas, for example you miss a step, you carry your bag more on one shoulder than the other, you carry your child always on the same side or you work on 2 screens and do not have them in front of you, etc., all this will generate mini imbalances which could be a source of problem. The goal of osteopathy is to detect everything that is wrong, thanks to a consultation where your practitioner will test you from head to toe, and to treat the causes of these imbalances but also the consequences in order to rebalance you as well as possible.

Sports osteopathy in Versailles to improve performance:

In the same logic as prevention, your osteopath will try to detect any imbalances that could alter your performance and treat them. 

But your osteopath also has a role of advice on 

  • Physical preparation(muscle strengthening exercises, stretching, isokinetic exercises),
  • equipment (shoes, compression, etc.)  
  • natural treatments (green clay poultice, essential oils, cryotherapy, etc.).
  • Nutrition

Who can consult a sports osteopath in Versailles in the Yvelines?

A sports osteopath is an osteopath who specializes in sports, so your osteopath can take care of any patient, sports or not, but concerning sportsmen: 

  • The different training courses followed by your osteopath (see below) allow him to welcome all types of athletes in his office, whatever their level or sport (collective or individual)
  • Sporting children : Your osteopath also trained in pediatrics for three years, she is able to take care of sports children. The field of sport in pediatrics is very poorly known and this is why your osteopath has specialized in this field to promote sport among young people, to avoid a stop of sport for injuries and to prepare the sportsmen of tomorrow.

Your osteopath in Versailles is specialized in sports:

Always with the aim of giving the best advice to his patients, based on the latest research, your osteopath has therefore followed numerous training courses:

Kinesio taping training, expert level

kinesio-taping-by-marie-messager-osteopath-a-versailles osteopath sport

As he approaches his osteopathy diploma, your osteopath has also followed a training course in kinesiotaping. These are colored bands that can be seen on many sportsmen and women and that aim to support a muscle, a ligament, a tendon, a joint and to improve the veno-lymphatic drainage. The application of these bands may seem simple but it requires a perfect mastery of human anatomy but also the technical gesture of the application. Indeed, a bad application of the bandage can be harmful. In order to perfectly master this approach, your osteopath has followed all the training courses of kinesio taping France (the only training in France recognized by Kenzo Kase, creator of kinesio taping) and has become an expert in kinesio taping (KT3).

University Diploma in Osteopathy of Sport in Avignon

Although your osteopath already has a DU in sports, he chose to return to school for a year to enrich his knowledge in the sports world and to be up to date with the latest research. The choice of the DU in Avignon rather than in Paris was made because of the quality of the speakers present in Avignon who allowed your osteopath to specialize even more in certain fields with for example :

It is an approach developed by the medical staff of the French national team (2007-2011) in order to prevent injuries to athletes. Because prevention is better than cure, your osteopath decided to follow this training at the CREPS of Font Romeu in order to identify the profiles at risk of injuries thanks to some tests. This training allowed him to discover protocols to advise the patient to improve their physical condition and to work on their weak areas.

Indeed, many pathologies of the runner occur simply because of a bad shoe.
