Sports Injury Massage Therapy consists of a combination of soft tissue manipulation techniques, which can be used to help improve performance and optimise recovery following training or competition. All Teesside Sports Injury Centre therapists are skilled and qualified in Sports Massage Therapy.
Remedial massage uses deep massage and soft tissue mobilisation techniques effectively to achieve specific goals. These methods are used as a combined therapy in order to achieve a variety of results, which are beneficial to anyone, not just the sports performer.
As part of your initial appointment you will be asked about your weekly routine, any current aches and pains and what you wish to gain from this massage therapy.
A postural and biomechanical assessment will then be carried out to pick up on any currently contributing or potentially predisposing factors.
From this information a personal treatment plan will be developed using a variety of the following techniques in order to meet your goals, such as effleurage, petrissage, tapotement compressions, vibrations, frictions, trigger point therapy, soft tissue release and positional release.
