What is a “Sports Injury”?
Sports  injuries  result  from  acute  trauma  or  repetitive  stress associated  with  athletic  activities.   Sports  injuries  can  affect bones  or  soft  tissue.   Can  be  caused  by  participation  in  a sporting event.

SPORTS MASSAGE ADVICE

Regular  massage  usually  means  those  treatments  offered  at  beauty  spas  or  relaxation  clinics.  

 

Both environments offer valid treatment for overworked, stressed muscles. However, sports and remedial massage differs in both its purpose and the techniques used. While nearly all massage therapists can perform regular massage, only those with specific sports massage skills are adequately equipped to perform a sublime sports massage.  

 

It is essential that the sports therapist has an  in depth knowledge of anatomy & physiology but also have a good understanding of the demands being asked of the body for specific sports.
