Sports Massage

At Abbey Chiropractic Clinic, we also have a sports massage therapist if you are suffering with tight or injured muscles. Sports massage is not just for the sports person; anyone can benefit, including people in physically demanding jobs and those people who suffer from stress whether that be physical or emotional in nature.

The prime purpose of sports massage therapy is to help alleviate the stress and tension which builds up in the body’s soft tissues during physical activity. Where minor injuries and muscle spasms occur, due to overexertion and/or overuse, massage can break them down quickly and effectively. Regular sports massage will hopefully prevent those niggling injuries that so often get in the way of performance and participation in your chosen sport at whatever standard that is.

Sports massage tends to be deeper and more intense. It is based on the various elements of Swedish massage and often incorporates a combination of other techniques involving stretching, compression, friction, toning, and trigger point therapy. The skilled therapist brings together this blend of techniques, knowledge and advice during treatment, to work effectively with the client to bring about optimum performance and to provide injury-free training and minimise post event injuries.
