Sports Massage Therapy
As we all know, accidents happen and they can often result in injury. When an injury is left untreated the tissue state can change and fascia can become stuck, as a result Biomechanics will be affected.
We assess each individual’s biomechanics prior to treatment. Incorrect balance left over a period of time will cause surrounding muscle groups to work differently. Muscles can often become short, weak or congested and fascia pliability can change, this also can lead to injury.
Once any imbalances have been detected, a personal treatment plan will be prescribed. If poor tissue state is found we will recondition, re-programme and rehabilitate so biomechanics can regain equilibrium.
We ask that you work with us and carry out relevant exercises and stretches to achieve your maximum flexibility. It is essential that you concentrate on mechanical correction and balance throughout treatment and in daily living to promote a speedy recovery.
We will advise you on training, and will encourage you as an individual to return to fitness as and when safe to do so. It is important to complete the course until your tissue state has been reconditioned.
