Whether you are nursing an IT Band injury from your latest marathon, or a sore ankle or lower back injury from your much too rough tackle football at your family reunion, Pearson Chiropractic & Rehabilitation is here to help. No matter what level of sports you participate in, you will get injuries. That is just part of the deal. But a Medical Massage from a Pearson licenced Massage Therapist, along with a chiropractic adjustment is just what the doctor ordered.

What Is Sports Massage?

Sports massage therapy is geared toward athletes of every kind, from world-class professionals to weekend joggers. The particulars of the sports massage technique are specific to the athlete’s sport of choice. Focusing on areas of the body that are overused and stressed from repetitive and often aggressive movements.

The benefits provided by the services of a Sports Massage Therapist are gaining in popularity. Athletes all over are finding it as a useful component in a balanced training program. Chiropractic Massage can be used as a way to enhance preparation  before an event as well as reduce one’s recovery time after the event. It also aids in allowing  a higher maximum performance during training or after an event. Many athletes are discovering that specially designed Sports Massage reduces fatigue, promotes flexibility, improves endurance, prepares their body and mind for optimal performance and even helps prevent injuries.

Sports Massage Benefits

One of the largest benefits of using a Sports Massage Therapist, compared to other health care modalities, is its ability to focus on muscle-tendon junctions. A 2010 study in the journal of Strength and Conditioning Research found that a massage as brief as a 30-second massage, significantly improved a person’s hip-flexor range of motion. A different study conducted by Margaret Jones, Ph.D. of the American College of Sports Medicine, showed that there is a notable trend toward decreased muscular soreness in the athletes who received Therapeutic Sports Massage either before or after exercise.

For anybody taking an interest in ordinary physical action, Sports Massage treatment consistently or two might be an incredible expansion to your typical routine. It’s best to talk with a professional massage therapist who is working with one of our chiropractic physicians to find a plan that will work best with your level of activity, budget and schedule.
