Therapeutic Massage for Sports Therapy
Athletes and those with physical fitness needs require a high level of care to meet the demands of an active lifestyle. Sports Therapy is used to address common issues such as: pain in movement, constricted muscle patterns, muscle spasms, range of motion restriction, reduced performance, unexplained muscle fatigue, sports injury/surgery recovery, and scar tissue adhesions.
At Frisco Massage Therapy advanced certifications such as Neuromuscular Massage Therapy, Myofascial Release Therapy, Structural and Myoskeletal Alignment Therapy, PhysioKinetix Neuromuscular Re-education are used for their cohesive applications for acute pain, injuries, myoskeletal dysfunction and repetitive pattern problems. These therapies are not like a traditional Swedish massage; every action and motion in the massage has very specific goals relating to the compensations your body has made to function while under duress. Rather than simply relaxing the muscles as a Swedish massage will achieve, a therapeutic massage aims to bring the body back into harmony (or homeostasis) with all the other systems in the body. The objective is to release muscles holding dysfunction, increase overall mobility, bring the body back to a neutral state, and restore postural stability, thereby assisting the body in pain recovery, function, and healing.
Therapeutic massage for sports therapy can be used as a collaborative, supportive addition to conventional medical treatment of illness and injury, alleviating pain and stress, aiding soft tissue healing, and revitalizing the body. In addition, regular massage care can enhance health, providing relaxation, the release of muscle tightness, relief from anxiety and tensions, and balancing aspects of body/mind/spirit.
