What Is Sports Massage?

Don’t be fooled by the name, consider sports massage to be a deep tissue massage suitable for sports people and non-sports people alike. At Belfast Back Care and Physiotherapy Centre, sports massage is used as an important component of Physiotherapy treatment and as a stand alone treatment. When using sports massage it is especially important to have a thorough understanding of anatomy and physiology, in particular the muscular and skeletal systems which as Chartered Physiotherapists puts us in an ideal position.

Aim Of Sports Massage

Sports massage aims to uncover and relieve underlying problems such as;

  • increased muscle tension
  • trigger points
  • thickened tissue
  • pain

All these injuries create an imbalance in the bodies musculo-skeletal system. When performed on a regular basis sports massage can help prevent injuries to not only the muscles but also joints, ligaments and tendons hence why it is so popular among athletes pre and post activity but also advantageous to non-athletes.

How Sports Massage Works

  • Warms the tissues
  • Increasing blood flow to the muscle
  • Stimulating peripheral nerves
  • Relaxes the muscle
  • Encourages patient relaxation
  • Stretches muscle fibres
  • Mobilises fluids e.g. lactic acid
  • Breaks down lesions and scar tissue

Benefits Of Sports Massage

  • Injury prevention
  • Uncovering underlying problems
  • Improving performance
  • Relaxation of mind and body
  • Speeding up recovery time post exercise
  • Treating muscular injuries

Sports massage has been successfully used at our centre in treating marathon runners, hairdressers, professional boxers, civil servants, recreational golfers and many many more.
