Sports massage is used primarily by athletes. This modality specifically targets muscles that may be overused and helps reduce fatigue while increasing endurance. It can be really helpful to decrease the tension in muscles that may be fatigued. This can also help to increase range of motion and flexibility in hard worked muscles. With an increase in ROM it can offer support in lessening the risk of injury to these overused areas. Pre-event sports massage can help you prepare for the upcoming demands of the task at hand. Post-event sports massage is helpful to speed up recovery. As a athlete growing up combined with 14 years military experience, I know first hand the benefits that sports massage can offer.
