Easing muscular stress and tension
During physical activity, stress and tension can build up in our soft tissue, often causing discomfort. Overuse of particular muscles can also cause injuries and pain. But having to stop competing, or miss training sessions because of tense muscles, can be frustrating. Sports massage combines deep tissue massage, and can alleviate muscular stress, helping to keep you in top physical shape. Because it compliments what we do as Physiotherapists, we now offer a weekly sports massage clinic, here at North Yorkshire Physiotherapy.
Sports massage improves circulation, flexibility, and can disperse lactic acid. This can be extremely beneficial, particularly after a challenging sporting event, when our soft tissue and muscles feel tired, achy and heavy. It helps to keep you at your physical peak, lengthening tight muscles and making you more resilient to injury.
But it’s not just top athletes, or those in physically demanding jobs that can benefit from this sort of care and attention. Many people opt for a routine maintenance massage to keep their muscles relaxed and flexible, or simply to reduce stress.
Our therapist, Mandy, runs a clinic on Wednesday afternoons but can be flexible if required. To book an appointment with Mandy please click here.
