During sporting activity muscle tightness will occur and adhesions may develop. These adhesions are bands of tightness in the muscle that occur when muscles are over worked resulting in muscle fatigue and tension.
Sports Massage Therapy aims to restore muscle tension, ligament damage and fascia into its original state. It improves circulation and lymphatic drainage removing waste products in our muscles that occur when overloaded. This will remove any unwanted muscle tension, relieving stress and increasing the flexibility of soft tissues.
After receiving your sports massage therapy your Physiotherapist may provide you with some information and exercises to help maintain the flexibility that the sports massage therapy has achieved.
