Sports Massage - Injury & Assessment
What is Sports Massage?
The common misconception from the treatment title is that 'Sports Massage' is only for the sporty, but it is a term used for the deeper variety of massage that was first seemingly popular with people in the sporting field.
Your Sports Therapist will carry out a full assessment of the area, talk you through what they think could be causative, and carry out treatment.
This therapy gets deep into the muscle tissue to release trigger points of tension caused by not only activity but everyday postures undertaken in work and home life. It is patterns that we repeat day in day out, like if you sleep on your side every night or work seated everyday for hours - these things all greatly impact on posture and in turn create tightness and weakness in muscle tissue resulting over time in muscular pain.
Not only can this treatment help to increase range of movement, strength, and speed up recovery from injury or pain. It can also boost your immune system, improve lymphatic damage and increase blood circulation.
