Most sporting activities can contribute to muscle groups becoming repetitively overused which in turn can result in dysfunction developing within the soft tissue. Sports massage is beneficial to incorporate into any level of training regime.
Sports massage works by engaging deeply with the soft tissue structures of the body allowing improved muscle function, flexibility, and mobility. It is also highly recommended during pre and post events to both prepare the muscles and assist recovery.
Following sports injury, treatment doesn’t simply involve administering a ‘deep tissue massage’. Rehabilitation is a potentially complex process which endeavours to focus on the specific area of dysfunction. It focuses on applying specific knowledge to an advanced remedial massage treatment to bring about repair and recovery.
Rest can, very often, be proposed as an improvement strategy but rest, combined with an effective rehabilitation programme is likely to result in a quicker, more effective treatment regime.
SPORT MASSAGE has been recognised as invaluable in both prevention and treatment of sport injuries. Many athletes and teams use sport massage for toning muscles and joints before events and for treating them afterwards. Utilising sport massage within your training programme will help you to identify and treat potential injuries which can lead to the development of serious problems.
At Aberdeen Osteopathy and Massage Clinic we use a combination of massage, stretching, strengthening and mobilising techniques to increase flexibility and enable full range of movement.
Sport and remedial massage is a treatment that concentrates on specific problems by realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissues. This rehabilitation technique works by breaking down adhesions to relieve pain and restore normal movement. Adhesions (bands of painful, rigid tissue found in muscles, tendons or ligaments) can block circulation, cause pain and inflammation and limit movement.
The rehabilitation treatment will typically involve a combination of deep tissue massage, trigger point therapy and stretching. Applied skilfully, it is a most effective therapy for relieving muscle tension and restoring balance to the musculoskeletal system. One of the greatest benefits is to help prevent injury, by identifying potential over-use problems before they become over-use injuries.
