Treatment for Sports Injuries

Massage plays an important role as a supplement to standard injury rehabilitation procedures. By encouraging circulatory movement and relaxing muscles, massage helps the body pump more oxygen and nutrients into tissues and vital organs.

Muscle Flexibility Restrictions

Massage therapy is a beneficial treatment for improving flexibility and motion. By working on muscles, connective tissues, tendons, ligaments, and joints, massage can improve your flexibility and range of motion, keeping your joints more fluid and making them less injury prone.

Fatigue and Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia is associated with widespread chronic pain, fatigue, memory problems and mood changes. It occurs more often in women than in men, and is not a disease, but rather a syndrome that can be managed.

Neuromuscular Therapy

Neuromuscular therapy is a specialized form of deep tissue massage in which digital pressure and friction are used to release areas of strain in the muscle. These areas of strain are called tender or trigger points and are the cause of muscular pain symptoms.

Relaxation and Stress Therapy

Relaxation therapy, which is the act of using relaxation therapeutically, will help you to relieve stress, control anxiety symptoms, improve sleep, function, think better, and have a better quality of life in general.

Post Surgical Adhesions

These inner scars – tough tissue bands that form between your abdominal tissues and organs – can develop after surgery. Also known as abdominal adhesions, they make your normally slippery internal tissues and organs stick together.

Post Sporting Event Strains

In most cases, “the early bird gets the worm”.  Researchers have found that intervention of physiotherapy treatment for acute soft tissue injuries within a few days has many benefits.

Auto accident Whiplash Injury

If you have been involved in a car accident, whiplash injuries need to be taken very seriously. Because symptoms of a whiplash injury can take weeks or months to manifest, it is easy to be fooled into thinking that you are not as injured as you really are.

Myofascial Release

Myofascial release (or MFR) is an alternative medicine therapy that claims to treat skeletal muscle immobility and pain by relaxing contracted muscles, improving blood and lymphatic circulation, and stimulating the stretch reflex in muscles.

Sports Massage

Aspects of sports massage therapy are gaining popularity as useful components in a balanced training regimen. Sports massage therapy can be used as a means to enhance pre-event preparation and reduce recovery time for maximum performance during training or after an event.

Hot/Cold Therapy Packs

Hot and cold therapy each have their own appropriate uses. You should never apply heat to a joint that is already hot, red, and irritated, for example, nor should you apply cold to a joint that’s stiff and not moving well.

Stretching/ROM Exercises

Active range of motion exercises help improve joint function. Range of motion is how far you can move your joints in different directions. These exercises help you move each joint through its full range of motion.

Active Muscle Release

Active muscle release is a patented, state of the art soft tissue system that is movement based. The technique is used to treat problems that involve the muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, and nerves.

Deep Tissue Fascial Release

Myofascial release (MFR) therapy focuses on releasing muscular shortness and tightness. There are a number of conditions and symptoms that myofascial release therapy addresses.
