Aspects of sports massage therapy are gaining popularity as useful components in a balanced training regimen.

What Are The Benefits?

One of the key benefits of Sports massage therapy compared to other modalities is its ability to target muscle-tendon junctions. A 2010 study in the journal of Strength and Conditioning Research found that even a 30-second massage improved hip-flexor range of motion. Another study done by the American College of Sports Medicine, demonstrated a notable trend toward decreased muscle soreness in the athletes who received massage either before or after exercise.

For anyone participating in regular physical activity, Sports massage therapy every week or two may be a great addition to your normal regimen.

Therapeutic exercises are designed to target specific muscles or muscle groups. Some exercises include: the use of dumbbells and hand weights, use of Therabands, or the use of one’s body weight as resistance. Manual therapy examples include stretching of joints/muscles, trigger point release techniques, and performing traction.
