Sports Massage London Bridge: Your Trusted Therapists in Central London
Muscle strains and joint pain are common occurrences when you’re an athlete. If pain hinders your performance or athletic progress, at London Osteopathy Clinic, we can help. Our sports massage therapists near London Bridge can diagnose your issue and perform the right type of massage to ease your pain, speed up recovery after an injury, and help you boost athletic performance.
Is Sports Massage Right for Me?
Focusing on joints and muscles that are usually strained during a workout, sports massage therapy provides quick pain relief, eases stiff muscles, and improves joint elasticity. This type of massage is right for the sportsperson, but also for everyone else dealing with a specific type of pain (e.g. elbow pain, ankle pain, etc.)
During this type of massage, your therapist will focus on the affected area alone. For instance, if you have ankle or leg pain, your therapist will massage your calves, thighs, and ankle joints. If you have specific shoulder or neck pain resulted from an injury (either weightlifting or whiplash after a car accident), sports massage therapy will focus on those specific areas.
However, sports massage therapy is different from deep tissue massage and may not be suitable for people with non-specific neck, shoulder, or lower back pain.
If you are a desk worker who suffers from pain due to bad posture or are in pain because of an illness such as arthritis, your therapist may recommend a deep tissue massage or osteopathy treatment that focuses on your overall wellbeing.
Can Sports Massage Improve Performance?
As an athlete, you’ll likely suffer from pain due to intensive training sessions. Painkillers are a quick solution for immediate pain relief, but they can be detrimental in the long run. Indeed, painkillers could mask pain and it is likely you will damage your joints and muscles if you don’t treat the cause.
Sports massage is focused precisely on improving your performance by preventing injuries to begin with. Sports massage can also speed up recovery if you have been injured. Associated with painkillers when necessary, this type of therapy can help you overcome your limits, boost performance, and achieve your athletic goals.
