Sports & Remedial massage

with Graham Stones 

Sports and Remedial massage is a thorough scientific and remedial approach to treatment that utilises the tone, symmetry, movement, response and health of muscle and connective tissue to reduce pain, treat acute injuries, chronic pain symptoms, promote better physical health and improve your overall function and well being. As well as an effective form of treatment for muscular pain and injury many people use sports massage regularly as preventative treatment, which keeps the body tissue functioning well and reduces the risk of more serious and inhibiting injury occurring. 

Sports massage is not only for athletes; many people are using this type of treatment for common injuries such as back, neck and shoulder pain, repetitive strain injury, sprains and strains. The therapist uses a wide range of massage techniques as well as more specific techniques such as: 

  • Neuro-muscular techniques similar to acupressure which works by calming the neural responses to the muscles and therefore reduces hypertonicity in the muscles and gives greater control. 
  • Muscle energy techniques to strengthen weaker areas of the body and break down fibre adhesions so that the muscle can function better. 
  • Proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation is similar to muscle energy techniques only used through whole movement patterns in the body to create a better flow of movement in the body again.
  • Strain- counter-strain to allow movement through a previously injured or protected area. 
  • Soft tissue release is a combination of techniques to release tension and improve flexibility in the muscles and connective tissue. 

What is Sports massage used for?
This approach to treatment can be used by anyone who is experiencing pain, injury or interested in improving the way they function. You don't need to be an athlete to get good professional help that can help you enjoy what you do. It can be used for chronic pain (persistent pain) and acute conditions of muscle, tendon and fascia (connective tissue). It is an effective form of treatment for tears or strains of muscle, fascia and ligaments & sprains due to overuse. It is also a great way to help the body recover after strenuous exercise. If you are doing a lot of physical exercise then it should be an essential part of your maintenance to reduce the risk of injury and keep your body able to function at it's best.
