How can Sports & Remedial Massage help me?
For athletes ……… You are likely to stress your body by frequent hard training and competitions. Rest days, stretching and good nutrition will help the body recover but sometimes more is needed.
Sports massage will help you
• Recover better from hard training or competitions
• Reduce muscle pain and tightness
• Train more frequently because you recover better
• Deal with niggles before they become full blown injuries
• Achieve your best when it counts
For others………Repetitive strain injuries (RSI’s) and muscle tension and can affect anyone. You sit at the computer all week and suffer back and neck ache, possibly painful wrists and shoulders too. You spend all weekend gardening and have an aching hip and shooting pain in your leg. Sports massage is just as effective with relieving pain and correcting muscular stress and imbalance caused by everyday activities.
After surgery……. we have great success in improving movement in a joint or limb. An operation to repair a joint or compound fracture may require immobilisation. This results in muscle weakness and stiffness. Sports massage can help by breaking up scar tissue and stretching shortened muscles. Weak muscles can be strengthened – the patient will be asked to do simple exercises to help their own recovery.
