Massage for the Sport Enthusiasts

Have you suffered a sports related injury recently? Does the pain and discomfort linger longer than you would like?

Massage therapy might just be the perfect solution to your problem. Whether it’s a muscular spasm, twisted knee, sprained ankle or even broken bones, massage therapy offers the prospect of accelerated recovery.

Massage techniques help relax muscles, improve circulation and increase joint movements. The increase supply in oxygen and nutrients available to injured tissues helps the healing process. Massage also decreases scar tissue which commonly develops after sport injuries such as hamstring strain, sprained ankle, joint dislocation, or fracture.

Muscle spasms in the back and neck, as well as pains associated with nerve irritation can be treated with various techniques used in the Swedish massage. For instance, mobilization technique involves gentle passive joint movements that intended to assist and regain normal movements for the injured person. The lymphatic drainage massage aids in removal of the body metabolic wastes such as lactic acid from muscle tissue which are resulted from muscle fatigue after intense exercise.
