Sports massage is basically massage with some tekky stretches and techniques thrown in for good measure.
During a treatment we will see what pesky muscles, joints or tendons are being a pain, assess and treat accordingly to get rid of the pain.
I carry out a thorough postural assessment that with history taking takes around 75minutes on the first appointment. I will then book in the next appointment if you need one.
There are 3 types of strain from a minor tear, partial grade 2 strain to a complete grade 3 rupture.
Early intervention after the initial injury (inflammatory response, put ice on it until pain or swelling goes away) or when you get a niggle will stop a strain becoming a pain and stopping you in your tracks.
It will then move into the repair or proliferative (not chocolate profiteroles) phase of the injury which will lead to a reduction in scar tissue, increase blood flow, healing, and improved tissue tensile strength.
I will give you relevant exercises to help re strengthen and lengthen your sarcormeres and miyofibrils (MUSCLES!) which will lead you back to maximum exercise loading and full functional fitness, Yippee!
Initial appointments consists of taking a thorough history examination, assessment, treatment, aftercare advice.
Follow up appointments more time will be able be given to treatment as you improve we could do more work in the gym with rehab and strengthening.
To make an appointment, ask about your condition or for more information do feel free to contact me via the gym, phone, e mail or telegram.
I also have a body psychotherapy service which is a counselling listening session where I also do very light Myofascial and warm stones therapy as lead by the body and your mind where to treat.
