What is Sports Massage?

Sports Massage

Sports massage promotes faster recovery times while also reducing pain and improving the athlete’s range of motion. At Back to Health Wellness Center in Sarasota, FL, we have years of experience providing athletes of all skill levels with effective sports massage services. Our chiropractor may combine sports massage with different stretching techniques to help athletes prepare their muscles for optimal performance. Regular sports massage can also minimize your chances of being injured.

Benefits of Sports Massage

Sports massage acts as a safety check. This kind of massage helps to check the tightness of muscles. This warns the athlete and the therapist of the main areas that are at risk of injury. By releasing these tense muscles, our massage therapist can enhance athletic performance and minimize the chances of the athlete experiencing an injury.

Increased circulation reduces fatigue and decreases inflammation, which can put a ceiling on optimal muscle performance. Self-awareness of the muscle tone and body condition of the athlete are increased by sports massage. Massage reduces pain caused by tightly contracted muscles that put pressure on nervous tissues by relaxing muscle spasms. Sports massage will hasten the recovery time from muscle fatigue through the increment of circulation. This results in better repair, regeneration, and better nutrition of the muscle.

Sports massage therapy every week or two is a crucial addition to your normal recovery regimen. Aside from improving the function of your body, sports massage will also reduce your stress levels, allowing you to focus on preparing for your next competition.
