What Is Involved In A Clinical Sports And Remedial Massage Treatment?

During the treatment, various types of massage and stretching techniques may be applied; Soft Tissue Release, Myofascial Release, Muscle Energy Technique, Neuromuscular Technique, and Swedish massage with or with hot or cold stones. As one client said “hot honey oozing the muscle ache away”. Heat increases the circulation, and softens the tissue. The use of a cold pack will be used if there is muscle strain, as cold is good for strengthening the fascia tissue and reduces inflammation. Arnica gel may be applied to highly sensitive or painful areas.

Pre-assessment; may include standing, sitting and/or lying down. You may be asked to move limbs or joints, upper body or lower body depending what the issue trying to diagnose is. Where the pain is coming from, what movement causes the discomfort and at what degree of movement creates it? Is it a soft tissue injury and to what degree or is it fascial restriction at that point or actually from the opposing side.

Post Treatment, Exercises and Stretches most often be prescribed for home conditioning to assist you to heal and move better. This will help to strengthen the weak areas and stretch to loosen the restricted areas.

What Is Fascia?

You might ask what is fascia?

Fascia is connective, soft tissue made of collagen that surrounds and separates all muscle spindles, nerves, bones, tendons, ligaments and organs throughout the body. This is from the head to our feet. Which is why have heard everything is linked, therefore you cannot just work on the point of pain but find where the restriction lies. If the body has not been moving well, due to injury, illness or daily routine of sitting. Our tissue can become like wallpaper and stick together causing neural tension by tissue compression and shortening.

Adding movement of remedial exercises and stretches

One must also be mindful how we hold ourselves sitting, standing and for how long. Posture and joint movement is very important, however if you know have an tendency to have pore posture you want to counter balance it with regular sports massage treatment and incorporate the remedial exercises/stretches, pilates into our daily or weekly routine. You will see and feel an improvement of movement and less discomfort. All this combined with intake of water on a regular basis aims to improve joint movement and minimize shortness in our fascia. This may help with your energy in your daily activities and performance.
