FAQ

 

A few key benefits of sports massage are :

  • Pain reduction;
  • Increased flexibility;
  • Improved elasticity of soft tissue;
  • An increased speed of recovery;
  • Strengthening of muscle fibers;
  • Increased ROM (Range of Motion);
  • Increased circulation;
  • Reduction of risk injury;
  • Decreased muscular fatigue;
  • Increased muscular endurance.
Yes, through specific Sports Massage Therapy techniques that are applied correctly. Sports Massage will increase the blood flow to the targeted area increasing the rich and oxygenated blood to the damaged soft tissue, which will help remove metabolic waste and increase the rate of soft tissue repair.
DEFINITELY YES. The direct application of Sports Massage encourages muscular balance allowing the muscles to work in sync and the manual stretching of the muscles reduces muscular tension and frees the muscles of metabolic waste allowing the muscles to work more efficiently so you can train harder, longer, and faster to help you reach your optimal fitness goals.
That depends on several factors such as training volume and intensity, whether or not you have chronic pain or acute injury, and other factors. Sports Massage on a regular basis is definitely a good thing as you read earlier the list of benefits and how a regular session plan is best determined after the therapist's individual assessment . Professional Sports individuals to the regular gym will get regular treatments for 2 main reasons : a) Prevention : How long do you spend talking or thinking about those little niggles, aches, pains and full blown injuries? How much time do you spend preventing those niggles becoming injuries that will stop your training? A good therapist will be able to prevent injury in a number of different ways. A good therapist can identify if you are training correctly. If, for example, you are running on the camber of a road too much, this will show to a therapist by the imbalance and tilt of your pelvis and associated muscles. The therapist will then be able to release the areas of tension that would otherwise develop into an injury and give you training advice. The therapist will also be able to identify the areas that are naturally tight or weak and that could lead to an injury. The massage will loosen tight areas and the areas to be strengthened. This will allow the body to become balanced and therefore less likely to become injured. One small note of caution is that there are a few situations where massage may do more harm than good. However, this should not be for the athlete to worry about as any qualified massage therapist will know when they cannot help and you should be referred to another health professional. Some injuries are caused by overuse of a particular muscle. Overuse injuries often result in sore, painful, and inflamed muscles. Massage will reduce the likelihood of the muscle becoming overused in the first place. Massage will reduce the initial inflammation that leads to an overuse injury. Massage will straighten out fibres from the mess that is often left after training; thus allowing the otherwise overused muscles fibres to work productively. b) Recovery : The training high is legendary, but more powerful is the training low. Often the cause of this training low is injury. Not being able to train can make you feel depressed, lethargic, and ultimately puts you back a stage. The best thing about being injured is that you realise the importance of being healthy! Massage will increase the speed at which you recover and, as stated earlier, will reduce the likelihood of any re-occurrence of the injury. Massage is most effective at treating soft tissue injuries, such as sprains, strains and repetitive stress injury etc. All injuries will result in scar tissue. Scar tissue results from a tear to a usually straight (think uncooked spaghetti) and effective muscle fibre. When the muscle tissue rebuilds itself, it rebuilds in a mess of fibres (think cooked spaghetti). These fibres are strong but are not effective for movement and it becomes more likely that the fibres around the injured mess will become strained and more likely to become injured in the future. Massage will straighten this mess of fibres to allow the fibres to rebuild in a straight line again. The result will be that you are back to normal functioning and it is less likely to have another tear. Of course massage has its limitations. If you break your leg a massage will not help the bone mend. However, as soon as you are out of plaster, massage will reduce the scar tissue that was created when you broke your leg. So with the help of a therapist you will be up running sooner rather than later.
