What are the benefits of Sports Massage Therapy? Limitless Physio in New Milton

Sports massage is a popular form of treatment and prevention of soft tissue sports injuries. It is also very popular amongst the non-sporting population, for people who want to reduce their muscle tension, aches and pains.

Sports massage can help maintain the body in generally better condition, prevent injuries, improve recovery, prevent loss of mobility, cure and restore mobility to injured muscle tissue, boost performance and extend the overall life of your sporting career.

Physiological benefits of massage

Pain reduction – Tension and waste products in muscles can often cause pain. Massage helps reduce this in many ways including releasing the body’s endorphins.

Relaxation – Muscles relax through heat generated, circulation, and stretching. Mechanoreceptors that sense touch, pressure, tissue length and warmth are stimulated causing a reflex relaxation.

Common reasons people have a sports massage are: back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, knee pain, ankle pain, hip pain, sciatic nerve pain, ankle sprain, improving sports performance or general health and wellbeing.
