When it comes to athletes, keeping your body in optimal condition is crucial whether you’re a professional or a weekend runner. It is best to try to avoid any possible injuries. When injuries do occur, a quick recovery is of the utmost importance, which is why many athletes are increasingly incorporating sports massage into their health and fitness routines. Massage therapy has been shown to relieve muscle tension for athletes, improve flexibility, and aid in the recovery from injuries.
At Back to Health Center, our doctors, therapists, and technicians know that your ability to train and heal can mean the difference between winning the next race and having to sit it out. So whether you’re looking to add an extra dimension to your regular training routine, or you need help bouncing back from a recent injury, see how sports massage can help contribute to a better, faster, stronger you.
You don’t need to wait for an injury to occur before incorporating sports massage into your routine; in fact, you shouldn’t. Athletes frequently put more strain on their muscles than non-athletes, and this strain often places them at risk for injuries due to overuse. Massage is very effective at reducing muscle tension, lowering the risk for injuries in the future. Additionally, trained massage therapists have the ability to target specific muscle groups that are most used in an athlete’s sport of choice. Our staff is here to help you determine how sports massage can best complement your existing training sessions.
The recovery time for an injury is difficult to manage for most people, but this is especially true for athletes. Injuries result in lost training time, weakening the muscles and joints, and missed events. If you’ve suffered a sports injury, massage therapy, in addition to regular exercises prescribed by your doctor or physical therapist, can assist in getting you back to peak condition faster. Massage has been shown to help increase range of motion in muscles, meaning that you will be able to work your injured muscles more quickly and get them back into optimal shape. Bouncing back after an injury is always a difficult process that must be approached with patience, but you can give your recovery a boost by beginning regular sessions of sports massage.
