Clinical Sports and Remedial Massage
Clinical Sports and Remedial massage in its simplest form uses manual therapeutic techniques to improve a range of muscle disorders. During the massage treatment the practitioner will use Advanced Soft Tissue Techniques and problem-specific treatment techniques that are aimed at facilitating positive change to the soft tissue layers, from superficial to deep. It can be delivered relatively ‘generally’, for an overall effect of relaxation/restoration, or more specifically to address recipients’ particular needs, such as pain, dysfunction, impairment, etc.
- Myofascial release, enabling associated postural change
- Pain relief
- Improved autonomic function
- Functional movement restoration
- Prevention of injury/dysfunction recurrence
- Enhanced quality of life
- Muscle relaxation
- Trigger point therapy
What can I expect during the session?
The clinical sports and remedial massage is conducted on a physiotherapy coach. The client will be asked to uncover the areas of the body that need treatment, while the practitioner maintains the upmost professionalism by covering and supporting the rest of the body with towels. A number of treatment techniques will be used to improve muscle length, range of motion at the joint, or to break down scare tissue if the muscle has been injured.
How many sessions will I need?
If you are recovering from musculoskeletal injury then you may need a few sessions closer together to ensure that the healing process is supported and that return to activity occurs within the safest possible time. If you are extremely active then coming for a clinical and remedial massage once every 6 weeks is recommended as this is often the time where the practitioner may become aware of restrictions that often lead to musculoskeletal injury; prevention and early detection is always better then cure of injury.
