If you’re a semi-pro or professional athlete, or you’re seriously into your sports, then the last thing you want is an injury. Injuries keep you back, they’re frustrating and they impact on more than just your sports life. If you’re in Adelaide and you’re suffering a sports sprain, strain or tear, then book in with one of our sports massage therapists.
A sports massage goes deep into the root of the problem. It goes deeper even than a deep tissue massage. And unlike a deep tissue massage which is a whole body treatment, a sports massage focuses on specific areas. These areas can range from hamstrings to shoulders to calf muscles to ankles. Anywhere that a sports injury can take hold. A qualified sports massage therapist will be able to pinpoint the exact area that's damaged. They’ll then use kneading and manipulation techniques to get everything back in working order again.
But it isn’t just treatment or rehabilitation that a sports massage is good for. A good therapist will be able to feel areas that could potentially lead to problems and injuries later on. They’ll treat them as a preventative measure. They’ll also help enhance your performance. A properly working muscle or joint with proper freedom of movement is more likely to perform at its best. Boosting your flexibility in such a way can have enormous effects.
Given all of this, it’s unsurprising that a sports massage therapist is highly qualified in anatomy and physiology. They know the workings of the human body and how each muscle relates to another.
If you have shin splints, a damaged hamstring, a sore bicep, or any other number of sports injuries, make sure you book in with one of our sports therapists. They’ll talk you through your medical history, injuries and lifestyle to get the best plan of action for you. Whether you have an injury, want to prevent one or boost your overall sporting performance, we’ve got the right therapist in Adelaide for you.
