A workout routine is not complete until you care for the wear-and-tear or minor injuries that naturally occur with strenuous movements. Massage is a resource that offers numerous physical and mental benefits and can complement your total fitness program. It can not only help relieve pain or increase range of motion from current injuries, but massage therapy at ReQuest Physical Therapy in Gainesville and Newberry, FL can also help prevent injuries.
Trigger points, also known as stress points, can lead to muscle soreness and decreased flexibility. When muscles are continuously strained, they can lose the ability to relax. When flexibility is lacking, you can have increased muscle soreness and a greater risk for injury. Athletes are often required to push themselves to perform at their maximum effort. Sports massage is a great tool to help you both prepare for and recover from the stress of competition.
With sports massage, you can:
- Help relieve tired and sore muscles
- Improve flexibility
- Relax stiff muscles
- Speed up recovery from strenuous physical activity
