Sports Massage at WitsendHealth
Sports massage is specifically designed to treat and relieve the stresses put on the muscles during intensive athletic training and/or regular sporting activity. The aim is not only to alleviate the pain and symptoms, but also find and treat the root cause of the problem and prevent it from re-occurring.
Although it is a discipline many associate with only athletes or sports enthusiasts this is not the case. We see patients of all ages from teenagers upwards.
Our therapists here not only see patients coming to them directly for treatment but they also work closely alongside our osteopathic team receiving direct referrals from them. The combination of the two treatments have been found to be extremely effective.
Massage sessions are often good in the later stages of osteopathic care when rehabilitation is key. It can also been used alongside osteopathic treatment particularly where chronic muscle tension is a problem.
This deeper muscle massage is typically associated with recovery from minor injuries, strains and sprains. a sports massage is ideal for anyone struggling with pain or discomfort in a specific area. With an emphasis on increasing circulation and minimising inflammation
The massage will also lower your blood pressure and heart rate, whilst boosting your lymphatic drainage system and helping to improve flexibility, making it ideal as a performance aid for seriously sporty types.
