Sports Massage provides a number of benefits and has long been established as an essential part of sports performance and recovery. By using a number techniques the physiotherapist is able to help with: muscle tension and tightness, muscle spasm, injury prevention, muscular aches and pains and increased flexibility.
Other benefits to our patients include reduced pain to injured muscles, decrease in swelling, clearance of waste products of exercise and increase in blood flow to the area of injury.
Sports Massage is not just for athletes: it’s useful for anyone with chronic pain, range-of-motion problems and muscle injuries.

How sports massage may affect you during treatment - Treatment aims to improve the way your body functions. Muscles that are in a protective spasm are eased out of tightness allowing the fibres to relax and blood to move efficiently in and out of the area. Increased circulation will caused a brief period of inflammation and therefore some discomfort. During treatment some discomfort can be expected which we will monitor.
After Treatment: Following treatment you may experience some soreness and aching which should be brief in duration. This discomfort is your body healing itself; gobbling up unwanted cells, fighting any infection and repairing any damage. Such activities require increased circulation and, as such, you will feel warmth and perhaps a little soreness.
Further Benefits: Therapy affects more than tight and sore muscles. Blood arrives in your arteries, is squeezed out and then before it returns to your heart either along your venous or lymphatic drains it joins the liquid that is outside of your cells. Where you are chair bound,sedentary or suffering contracted muscles this interstitial fluid can build up creating toxicities and pain. Treatment can push or passively pull this liquid back towards your heart thereby allowing fresh blood to circulate where it is needed.
