How Is Sports Massage Applied?
Sports massage is used within chiropractic treatments as needed but can also be booked as a stand alone treatment in 30 minute or 60 minute appointments.
In sports massage treatments, thorough assessment of muscle function and balance identifies areas of tension, adhesions and fibrotic tissue, which form to replace damaged muscle.
Deep tissue massage and advanced sports massage techniques are used. These include myofascial and soft tissue release, muscle energy techniques, trigger point work and neuro-muscular release, to break down adhesions between muscle fibres, relax or stimulate muscles, increase or decrease muscle tone and length.
