Sports Therapy

What is Sports Therapy?

Sports massage is a deep, Swedish-style massage that uses a combination of kneading and gliding. The main aim is to stretch, release tension, relieve soreness in muscles and tendons, and assist in the repair of ligament injuries and strains. It is specifically concerned with the preventation of injury and the rehabilitation of your optimum levels of functional, occupational, and sports specific fitness, regardless of your age and ability. Sports therapists use a combination of techniques such as sports massage, exercise therapy, electrotherapy, taping, mobilisations and more. 

Is Sports Massage for Me?

Anyone can benefit from a sports massage to help deal with the stresses and strains that our bodies face every day. Aches, pains and injuries are caused by many activities at home and at work, such as driving, working at a computer or carrying small children, as well as on a sports field or in the gym. 

A sports massage treatment is tailored to your individual needs. It can be used to treat your whole body or be applied to specific areas, depending on what you feel you need. 

If you are a sports person, a sports massage can help your physical and pyschological preparation for an event by stimulating circulation and warming muscles, and reducing the risk of injury. After an event it will assist your recovery by removing waste products from those muscles (such as lactic acid), helping to prevent soreness and maintaining muscular condition. 

For anyone participating in regular physical activity, whether that be sports or hard physical graft like building work, bricklaying, groundwork, gardening, furniture removal and so on, a sports massage session every few weeks would help keep you working at your best. If you have any questions, please feel free to call up and speak with Glenn so that he can advise over the phone.
