Sports Massage

What is sports massage?

Sports massage is a massage therapy that helps repair muscle damage caused by physical activities. Sports massage is performed by manipulating muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia, which is a connective tissue that lines other soft tissues. This massage technique aims to aid in correcting soft tissue imbalances due to strenuous physical activity and trauma such as sports injuries, physical labour and regular acts of pushing the body to its limits.

Who needs sports massage?

Athletes, fitness enthusiasts and physical labourers will greatly benefit from sports massage to relieve sore muscles, although this massage technique holds numerous benefits for people of all ages and professions. Sports massage enhances blood circulation and lymphatic system flow, gently soothes muscle spasms, removes metabolic waste after exercising, helps scar tissue align after sustaining an injury, and prepares the body for physical activities to help prevent future injuries while fast-tracking recovery.

How does sports massage work?

At Pivotal Health & Wellness, sports massage is performed by a trained professional who will carefully assess the patient’s condition and medical history to decide on the best course of treatment action. Based on the nature of the muscular pain or injury, sports massage typically combines various massage techniques such as stretching, trigger point release and to deliver lasting results. This therapy can be targeted at a specific muscle group or applied across the entire body to relieve muscle tension and knots.
