Athletes and Therapeutic Massage

Therapeutic massage can be an athlete’s best friend, both before and after training or competition. Our physical therapist might recommend different types of massage to accompany different forms (and intents) of your physical therapy program. For instance:

  • Swedish massage may be indicated to relax tense muscles, increase the flow of blood to soothe pain, and boost fluid drainage for swelling reduction.
  • Deep-tissue massage may be necessary to loosen muscles and connective tissues located near their corresponding bones.
  • A technique called myofascial release can help free tissues trapped by fascial adhesions or distortions.
