Recovery from Injury and Faster Rehabilitation
Injuries and traumas are common for athletes. The goal is to avoid injuries and recover as quickly as possible. Although other kinds of massages like Deep Tissue Massage helps in recovery from injury, Sports massage is great for dealing with injuries in athletes. When a muscle is injured, the muscles in the area will become short and will contract. There is a pain in the area, inflammation and loss of motion.
In a sports massage the muscles are palpated, the tendons and ligaments massaged and stretching techniques are used. This causes muscles to loosen up and the buildup of scar tissue is reduced. This reduces pain and discomfort in the area.
