Sports massage essentially addresses pain caused by muscles that have become tight due to overuse, repetition, poor posture and injury. Sports massage is not just unique to people with sporting injuries and strains but it also helps those with pain caused from various working backgrounds.
The sensory feedback from pain also poor posture, might encourage the body to compensate by using other muscle groups to complete a specific movement pattern, if not checked these compensatory patterns can remain which may lead to future pain, discomfort or loss of performance for sporting activity.
Sports massage facilitates the ability for the body to move freely without pain or discomfort, whilst also enhancing range of motion. It can work as pre-habilitation; identifying potential problems and rehabilitation if an injury has already occurred. It works in harmony with other therapies helping to speed up recovery; advice is always offered at the end of a session to help maintain your muscular health.
