Sports massage is a deep, invigorating massage and stretching treatment which focuses on the muscles and soft tissues of the body. It can be used to assist an athlete’s performance and prepare for a sporting event or help afterwards in the recovery and rehabilitation phase.
Massage therapists at The Chiropractic Clinic are also trained in remedial massage, a more relaxing version. Both sports massage and remedial massage can assist in correcting problems and imbalances in soft tissue caused by repetitive and strenuous physical activity, poor posture or overuse of certain muscle groups. A variety of techniques are used to help relieve tense muscles, reduce the build-up of scar tissue and aid relaxation. Massage can also be useful in the treatment of specific sporting injuries and post-surgery.
