Minor injury is by far the most common musculo-skeletal problem. Conditions such as joint pain, frozen shoulder, tennis elbow, sciatica or repetitive strain injury (RSI) can be extremely painful and may seriously affect an individual’s occupation, sport or quality of life. If not treated correctly at any early stage, a minor injury can lead to a more serious condition in the long term. A Sports Massage / Remedial massage can provide pain relief and treat the majority of such minor problems quickly and effectively.
Sports massage is a term given to the specific deep massage techniques used to treat injuries. The treatment works on the body’s soft tissue: muscles, tendons and ligaments. It can be used in conjunction with exercises for the rehabilitation of sports and muscular injuries. It can also benefit those who are experiencing back pain, neck and shoulder pain, perhaps as a result of stress or depression. Deep massage techniques can also relieve those suffering from headaches and migraine or other chronic conditions such as arthritis. Sports massage is also a very popular treatment for those who simply prefer a much deeper massage for general maintenance and well being.
