A common misconception of a sports massage is that the only people that benefit from sports massage are athletes in training or footballers with muscle injuries. But the reality is that almost everyone can benefit from a sports massage. It could be just what you need after a long week at work sat in an unforgiving chair staring at a computer screen. Here at Kenilworth Chiropractic Clinic we specialise in sport massage in Leamington Spa.
Sports massage is a very versatile therapy which can help with a large number of problems including:
– Back pain
– Generalised aches and stiffness
– Tennis elbow
– Post-surgical stiffness
– Soft tissue injuries involving muscles, tendons and ligaments
– Muscle dysfunction associated with broken bones
How does sports massage work?
Every move we make puts stress on our body and if it is a repetitive movement, the same muscles are used every time and eventually they become fatigued. For you to carry on the movement other muscles step into to take the strain and when this happens those muscles that aren’t used to working so hard can leave you with aches and pains around your body. A sports massage will help alleviate the pain by increasingly the blood flow to the tight and tired muscles. This process re-oxygenates the muscles whilst at the same time breaking down harmful lactic acid and any scar tissue. Sports massage is proven to be a very effective method, allowing your muscles to work as efficiently as they can.
So whether you are a swimmer training for the Olympics, or you spend all day lifting heavy objects or sitting in an uncomfortable position at your desk you could benefit from a sports massage. So why not treat yourself and let the experts here at Kenilworth Chiropractic Clinic rid you of those uncomfortable knots and you can leave us feeling relaxed and unwound.
