What is Sports Massage?
Sports massage is a form of treatment specifically designed for soft tissues injuries. It is commonly performed on athletes by qualified massage therapists. Though generally applied using the hands, other body parts, such as the elbows and forearms can also be used.
Sports massage is one of the numerous types of massages designed specifically to treat musculoskeletal injuries and pain. It involves the manual application of pressure to knead the affected muscles and mobilisation of affected joints. Aside from treatment, this type of massage also helps prevent injuries, enhance the performance of muscles, and boost overall athletic performance.
How We Can Help
Sports massage can be classified based on when it is performed. There is a pre-event sports massage done within an hour before a game or activity that is usually followed by an inter-event massage for those who need to rest in between games. A post-event massage, on the other hand, is done when the athlete cools down while a restorative sports massage is performed during rest days.
