/ / Massage, Massage Therapist, Orthopedics, Sports

Massage is an ancient, but effective method to overcome several problems that a sportsperson faces regularly. Nowadays, even those who aren’t into sports also seek sports massages for the well-being of their muscles and tissues. Sports massage has several benefits including an increased joint range of motion (ROM), increased flexibility, increased sense of well-being, decreased muscle tension, decreased neurological excitability (nerves more relaxed), decreased muscle spasms, better sleep, etc.

In all sports massages, deep tissue massage is considered to be the best massage therapy as it has a long-term impact and it also helps in curing tissue-related problems. Generally, normal massage therapies have a short-term impact and they can’t cure serious problems but deep tissue massage is the opposite and that makes it the best among all the massage therapies.

Massage’s Effect on Injury:
When we are correlating messages with injury, it means we are talking about internal injury related to tissue or muscle. Internal pain can be caused due to conditions like muscle fatigue or damage to tissue, this can be overcome with the help of proper massage therapy as it relaxes the tissue & muscle by stretching it to the fullest.

Massage’s Effect on Recovery:
Recovery from an injury is highly dependent upon blood circulation in the body. The blood should reach properly to the injury site so that it can surpass necessary nutrients to the site. Massage can help in this because it also deals with the nerves blockage and ultimately makes the blood flow passive. This is the reason why massage is suggested in the case of muscular cramps as it makes the blood flow easy and thus relaxes your pain.

Massage’s Effect on Performance:
As a sports person, your overall performance will be decided based upon your flexibility, stretching, muscular power, and stamina. Well, it is already mentioned above that massage therapy helps in achieving the following things that can help in improving your on ground performance.
