What is Sports Therapy?

You don’t have to participate in sports to sustain an injury. When you least expect it, during routine tasks at work or at home, strains and sprains can happen. It’s critical to begin treatment as soon as possible since discomfort brought on by nagging pain can result in tension, bad posture, anxiety, and depression.

Sports therapy is a type of physical therapy that focuses on injury prevention and rehabilitating patients to their highest functional levels. Anyone with aches, pains, or injuries can benefit from sports therapy treatments, not just individuals who participate in sporting activities.

Sports therapy places a strong emphasis on the patient’s lifestyle, including occupation, degree of fitness, interests, posture, and overall way of life. This is accomplished through a thorough initial assessment that includes a full posture evaluation, verbal evaluation, and physical evaluation to properly determine the source of the discomfort.

  • Soft Tissue Release

What is a Sports Massage?

Although a sports massage can be intended for athletes, it is also very beneficial for anyone with tight muscles, persistent pain, or a limited range of motion. Many of the same symptoms of sports injuries can be produced by occupational, mental, and postural stress.

A sports massage aims to reduce the stress and tension that accumulate in the body’s soft tissues. Above all, whether you’re an athlete, an avid fitness enthusiast, or a once a week runner, this therapy can help prevent those pesky ailments that hinder performance and achievement.

Sports massage is a more vigorous and in-depth form of massage that is especially intended to alleviate muscular tension and relieve pain and suffering in the deep muscles.

Various components of a full body massage are used in the treatment, along with other techniques like stretching, compression, friction, toning, and trigger point response methods akin to shiatsu and acupressure. In order to maximise performance, provide injury-free training, and reduce injuries, the major goal is to get our patients to a point where they are no longer in pain or have a limited range of motion.
