CBR Clinics provide Sports Massage Treatments to help prevent and relieve conditions and injuries associated with exercise. The most common issue that we treat with Sports Massage therapy is tightness in the muscles following exercise.
We also offer Deep Tissue Massage, a treatment that works deep within the muscles and connective tissues, helping to realign them. Deep Tissue Massage also breaks up adhesions, which are muscular or soft tissue bulk-ups that cause restriction of movement and pain in the affected areas.
Your First Sports Massage Treatment
As you’d imagine, Sports Massage is primarily used to treat sports injuries. However, Sports Massage can also be used to treat a variety of problems that aren’t directly related to sport. When you first visit CBR Clinics for Sports Massage therapy, our massage therapists will identify the exact area of discomfort and the cause of the pain; this could be something as simple as slouching to one side while you drive.
Our experienced massage therapists have a wealth of experience in treating soft tissue conditions, using a variety of massage techniques.
What is Sports Massage?
Sports Massage is a treatment used to relieve and reduce the stress and tension that can build up within the body’s soft tissue while exercising.
Sports Massage is designed to help correct problems in soft tissue caused by repetitive and demanding physical activity. Undergoing Sports Massage before and after exercise may improve performance, help to speed up recovery and even prevent injury.
Most common Sports Massage techniques used at CBR Clinics:
- Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation Stretching (PNF)
- Myofascial Release
- Trigger Point Therapy
Sports Massage is similar to Deep Tissue Massage treatments in that they both manipulate the soft tissue more intensely than classic massage therapy. This more intense manipulation of the soft tissue leads to more effective results when treating injuries, pain or discomfort.
Sports Massage and Deep Tissue Massage can treat a variety of ailments and injuries that may occur as a result of exercise or not. The treatments enable you to train or exercise more efficiently, and can also help you achieve deep relaxation, depending on your needs.
