Massage Can Improve Performance
Sports massage may be given before or after an event, following an injury or on a regular basis. Sports massage typically includes a wide range of massage modalities and may include work on range of motion and strength. The specifics of sport massage are determined by the licensed massage therapist, based on the goals and condition of the athlete. When used for the purpose of healing a sports injury, sports massage can be very effective at strengthening the muscles surrounding a joint to provide additional support and prevent the injury from reoccurring.
