When it comes to sports injuries, there is no messing around. You have to take it easy, rest the injured area and apply the necessary precautions to ensure that the injury heals correctly. Sports massages are one of the best kind of massage when it comes to treating sport injuries. They are also useful for helping ease a stiff neck, plus, those who enjoy deeper massages will also find relaxation in this form of massage.
The aim of a massage is to reduce tension and stretch the ligaments and tendons. During a sports massage, the muscle groups will be flushed of all of the toxins you have undoubtedly built up in order to help improve muscle flexibility. This will also help aid joint mobility. Interestingly, a sport massage can take place before, during or after your workout.
Taking part in regular sports massage treatments can help break down scar tissues and reduce the risk of further injuries. Unlike Swedish massage therapies which are typically utilised when a client is looking for relaxation, deep tissue massages such as a sport massage can help with specific problems, such as the above.
The benefits of sport massage include reducing stress and pain. This is because the body releases neurotransmitters known as endorphins during the massage which act as a natural pain reliever. A sports massage after a workout can also help prevent or relieve delayed onset muscle soreness which is the soreness that occurs 12 to 24 hours after a workout has taken place. It does this by encouraging blood flow through the body and thus, preventing muscle fatigue.
