Sports Injury Massage

What is Sports Massage?

As an athlete or sportsperson, your performance depends on having a healthy body that will function to its best ability. This is why you need a sports massage, available in Ipswich at Andrea Plumb Therapies.

In addition to helping you train or exercise more efficiently, sports deep tissue massage treats a variety of injuries and ailments that may occur as a result of exercise, such as:

  • shin splints
  • tennis elbow
  • sprains
  • corked thighs and other conditions

Any sportsman or woman should consider sports massage an important part of their life, whether they are injured or not. It is an effective therapy to maintain the body, helps to release muscle tension, and prevents injuries. It will restore mobility to injured muscle tissue, boost performance and extend the overall life of your sporting career.

It’s a popular notion that only professional athletes can afford or need sports massage. The truth is that amateur recreationists are actually at a higher risk for just the kind of strains and injuries that sports massage can help heal, or even prevent. Hamstrings and Achilles’ tendons are particularly vulnerable, especially for those who don’t work out or stretch daily. Fortunately, sports massage is close at hand with AP Therapies for anyone in Ipswich, or Dulong, QLD, athlete or not.

Although the techniques used in sports massage were largely developed within the confines of professional sports, its benefits for all active lifestyles can’t be denied. Many physicians are now recommending sports massage in conjunction with physical therapy to help patients recover from soft tissue injury or surgery.

And these methods are not only helpful after a strain or injury has occurred; they can also be applied as a preventative measure. By improving circulation and the elasticity of muscles and tendons, the risk of muscle or ligament tear, cramping, and even dislocated joints can be greatly reduced.

AP Therapies offers professional sports massage to residents of Ipswich and Dulong on the Sunshine Coast, QLD area for anyone with an active or athletic lifestyle. It’s important to pursue a diagnosis with a physician for any acute or chronic injury, but sports massage can then be applied to aid the healing and recovery process. A routine schedule of sports massage can also help reduce the risk of future injury, and relieve chronic muscle pain or strain, enabling you to enjoy your active lifestyle safely, and pain-free.
