What is sports massage?

Sports massage is a hands-on therapy that involves kneading, rubbing, and tapping the skin, muscles, and other soft tissues. These techniques relieve pain, increase blood flow, and improve recovery.

The Kinetic Sports Medicine and Rehab team tailors sports massage to each patient’s goals and needs. This personalized approach lets them treat the specific injuries or problems you’re dealing with so that you can get back onto the court or playing field.

Which musculoskeletal problems benefit from sports massage?

The Kinetic Sports Medicine and Rehab team uses sports massage to treat various musculoskeletal problems, including:

  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Knee pain
  • Hip pain
  • Elbow pain
  • Sports injuries
  • Sprains and strains
  • Tendinitis
  • Bursitis
  • Trigger points (tight muscle knots)

You don’t need to be recovering from an injury to benefit from sports massage. Many athletes consider this a preventive therapy. Regular massages at Kinetic Sports Medicine and Rehab can speed recovery between workouts and help you perform at the highest level.

What does sports massage involve?

Sports massage is an outpatient procedure that takes 60-90 minutes per session.

When you first visit Kinetic Sports Medicine and Rehab, a licensed sports massage therapist completes a one-on-one consultation. They ask about the sports you play, what you hope to get out of treatment, and if you’ve suffered specific injuries or symptoms you’d like to address.

After gathering that information, your sports massage therapist develops a personalized treatment plan. This plan considers several things, including your fitness level, goals, and symptoms.

Sports massage is unique because it focuses on a specific body part. For example, if you suffer from chronic back pain, your massage therapist will target stiff or painful parts of your spine. They will use various hands-on techniques, like gliding, percussion, compression, and friction, to relieve discomfort and promote healing.

What are the benefits of sports massage?

Sports massage provides various benefits, including:

  • Enhanced range of motion
  • Increased flexibility
  • Fewer muscle spasms
  • Improved sense of well-being
  • Reduced risk of injury
  • Better blood flow

Sports massage provides benefits beyond the physical. Many patients say they feel happier and less anxious after starting treatment.
