Sports Massage Therapy is the manipulation of soft tissue to manage and rehabilitate muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia.
Here at The Physios we often use Sports Massage Therapy to complement Physiotherapy treatment with our practitioners working together closely. You do not need to be an athlete to benefit from sports massage as we can skilfully adapt our techniques to suit everyone.
We offer a full range of massage here at The Physios, including:
- maintenance to alleviate tightness caused by work postures, stress or to keep persistent niggles at bay
- pre-event massage to optimise muscle function and prevent injury
- post-event massage to promote recovery following muscle activity and to reduce the effects of delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS)
