Sports massage is a key part of physiotherapy. However contrary to popular belief, it is not a treatment solely restricted to those who play sports. A sports massage is more of a deep tissue massage suitable for everyone, whether they play sport or not. It is a popular treatment as a sports massage can help prevent injuries and also reduce the likelihood of sore joints, ligaments and tendons hence the advantages to those who don’t partake in sport.
A sports massage can be used as a regular treatment to help maintain healthy muscles. It can be particularly useful for those who are involved in an intensive training schedule, helping to reduce recovery times and reduce the chance of any injury. Other clientele include office workers who may suffer from back, shoulder and neck pain due to being seated at a desk for the majority of the working day, a massage can help release tension and promote blood flow. This helps to feel more relaxed and reduces the chances of suffering from any aches or pains due sitting in an office for the working day.
