The Benefits of Massage Therapy in Sports Rehabilitation
It does not matter what game or activity you participate in or how fit you are, at some point in time, every athlete will experience a setback or an injury.
What you do after you get injured is what matters.
When injury sets in, it can be very mentally discouraging and can even affect your day to day life, let alone practice your sport. Don’t let an injury take you out of the game.
When it comes to getting better, it’s essential to seek the help of trained professionals with experience in sports-related injuries.
From weekend warriors to pro athletes, registered massage therapy, combined with chiropractic care, has become the standard for optimal recovery for athletes in all sports.
Massage treatments assist athletes in conditioning and reduce the chances of injury.
Muscle pain and injury are expected as a part of an athlete’s career. The physical strain, involved in competitive sports, the specific execution of sports-related movements, and the excessive use of large muscle groups, can lead to occasional discomfort or injury.
As a high-performance athlete, it is not if you’ll get injured, but rather when. Failing to take care of your body and provide the body with the necessary care and treatment it needs, will result in increased downtime and a lengthy recovery period from an injury.
Proper conditioning with regular sessions of massage therapy and focusing on spinal health and muscle function, can dramatically help minimize the potential risk of injury. Take your health and performance seriously.
Boosting Blood Circulation with Massage Therapy
Improved blood flow promotes improved healing in the body. Massaging the muscle tissues increases blood flow in the affected area to stimulate restoration and healing at an increased rate.
Combining Massage Therapy and Chiropractic Care
Combining massage therapy with chiropractic care provides a holistic treatment that increases the chances of reduced recovery time. Massage therapy can help enhance the advantages of chiropractic care. When tissues are inflamed, the body does not respond as well to adjustments. Relaxing and loosening muscles improves the body’s ability to have an effective chiropractic adjustment.
Promote flexibility with Massage Therapy and chiropractic care
To be the best version of yourself in competition, you need to perform and keep your body in optimal condition. Excessive competition can stiffen tissues and reduce flexibility. Sports-focused massage therapy and chiropractic adjustments will improve your range of movement through stretching muscle tissue fibres and connective tissues, helping you preserve and promote flexibility.
