Posture Doctor’s Sports Massage, Not Just For Athletes!


Sports massage is regularly advertised as a treatment modality for only highly skilled athletic performers. The fact is, sports massage can be beneficial to ANYONE regardless of sporting ability or exercise participation.

Sports massage refers to a range of massage techniques that are applied in a rhythmic, deep and manipulative fashion. Yes, sports massage can be used to prepare athletes prior to an event or to reduce the effects of injury following an event. BUT sports massage can also be used on a weekly basis to maintain muscular health, reduce pain and muscular tension and improve flexibility and range of movement.

If you are an office worker and suffer from regular tension type headaches or pain in your neck, shoulders or back, then sports massage can benefit you just as much as an athlete. Sitting at an office desk for 8+ hours can place great strain on your muscles, similar to the strain experienced by an athlete when training for an hour. During such circumstances, a gradual build up in muscular tension occurs which includes an increase in the presence of scar tissue and active trigger points.

Whether you are Usain Bolt or Mr Smith from the admin department, an increase in your muscular tension is going to be painful if left untreated!

Why should a sports massage and its benefits be limited to athletic performers?

The benefits of a sports massage which can be experienced by non-sporting individuals is vast but can include;

• Reduced pain

• Relieved muscular tension

• Increased flexibility

• Increased range of movement
