What is Sports Massage?
Sports massage is a treatment that not just sporty people use!
Lots of people have now cottoned on to the fact that this is the best form of massage to have as we look at the reasons why your body is behaving the way it is. Some clients have injuries, some don’t.
With each client there is an assessment. This is there to provide me with some idea of how your body is mechanically working.
With this information I then proceed to treat the area’s that are needed. Using massage, stretching, trigger point/friction therapy, Kenesio taping and exercise prescription to help whatever goal you may have.
Have a look at the next page, it will give you an idea of some of the treatments that I have seen.
There are loads of different types of injuries which sports massage can help. Here are a few examples:
- Muscle injuries
- Strains and sprains
- Muscular tightness and restriction of movement
- Muscular Pain
- Postural imbalance
- Tennis elbow
- It syndrome
- Back pain
- Joint pain
- Post pregnancy pain
Also don’t forget that having a regular sports massage can actually help detect some of these problems before they arise.
