Acute muscular strains and ligament sprains. Chronic over-use and repetitive strain injuries related to sports or lifestyle. Postural imbalances, stressed, tight and tired muscles. Advice on sports-specific or post-surgery rehabilitation.
Deviations from a "normal" posture can create imbalances which cause areas of excessive wear and tear. Sports massage, joint manipulation, stretching, joint articulation and exercise can address these issues.
Massage increases fluid dynamics within the muscles which improves the health of the tissues. A healthier muscle is more pliable and adaptable, therefore increasing its capacity to absorb force and stresses. Addressing all of these issues can improve performance, general well-being and can also reduce the potential risk of injury.
Massage is recommended by the NICE guidelines on the treatment of low back pain.
