Sports Massage is a specialized type of massage therapy that is designed to optimize athletic performance, lessen recovery time, increase flexibility, and prevent a sports injury. The massage can be performed before an athletic event to stimulate blood flow, prevent injury and strain, and warm up muscles. If a massage is conducted after athletic activity, the massage reduces the amount of recovery time that the body needs and lessens the possibility of cramping. For athletes that have sustained a sports injury, a massage focuses on the injury to relieve pain, reduce swelling and cut down on healing time. A sports massage includes a variety of techniques, such as pressure-point manipulation, moving the joints and stretching the muscles, water or ice massage, and the application of heat or friction. Athletes are invited to call or visit the Vancouver, WA chiropractor for more information about sports therapy and massage, reducing back pain, and optimizing performance.
