Sports Massage Therapy
Recover Faster with Sports Massage Therapy.
A sports massage is a type of therapy geared toward athletes and the particular stresses they place on their bodies. A sports-massage therapist is trained in applying techniques to help athletes avoid injuries, cool down after exertion and enhance their overall performance. Proper sports massages should concentrate on increasing motion and flexibility, relieving muscle soreness, and promoting a quick recovery from muscle overuse.
Sports massage focuses on muscles
relevant to the event. For athletes who train continuously, the goal is to enhance endurance, lessen the chance of injury and shorten the time needed to recover from an event. Sports Massage may utilize a variety of techniques. Prior to an athletic event, Sports Massage may be used with stretching in order to help athletes to loosen, warm and prepare their muscles so that their performance and endurance might
be enhanced. Following an athletic event, Sports Massage may be used to relieve pain, prevent stiffness, and return the muscles back to their normal state. Sports Massage may also be used for injury rehabilitation.
We also supply a large line of pain relieving lotions to help reduce pain. We recommend you try a topical analgesic, before over-the-counter pain relievers. Topical pain relievers deliver targeted pain relief with low levels of systemic absorption. This may result in less risk for systemic toxicity or drug interaction. (1)
We also offer rehabilitation equipment, such as therapy balls and Thera-Brand products, to help improve your performance on the field, as well as help rehab from an injury. Thera-Band resistance
exercise systems are used as tools for rehabilitating and restoring muscle and joint functions and for improving conditioning, balance and building strength.
