Sports Therapy, Sports Massage and injury clinic based on the Wirral.
Sports massage is a form of deep tissue massage used to treat the soft tissues of the body, such as the muscles, tendons, ligaments and to treat injuries. Despite what some may think Sports Massage is suitable for everyone, not just for athletes. Although sports massage can help anyone it is particularly important if you are involved in training or taking part in physical activity on a regular basis.
Benefits of sports massage can include:
Reduce muscle tension:
Constant training puts stress on the body meaning your muscles can become overworked and tense. This tension can result in the formation of trigger points (or knots). Having regular massages can improve your tissue pliability, helping to reduce injuries and improve mobility.
Many people now spend long periods at their desks which can result in muscles shortening. This shortening can pull your joints into positions which will reduce your bodies ability to function properly and increase the chances of over use and repetitive strain injuries. Sports massage can help to release these muscles and is a good way to reduce the negative affect working at a desk has on your posture.
Sports massage and soft tissue therapy can help to reduce pain caused by injury. Manipulation of the soft tissues can have a positive impact on pain levels in when combined with exercises and manual therapy techniques.
Assist with recovery:
Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS) can occur following a hard training session, sports massage may help recovery by increasing circulation in the muscles and assisting to flush out the toxins that build up during exercise. This can aid in your recovery and leave you in a better place to continue your training in the following days.
