Sports massage helps alleviate pain and prevent such injuries that greatly affect flexibility, mobility, response time, and overall performance in athletic events.
Trigger Point Therapy
Trigger points are an extremely common cause of pain. Trigger points are painful when pressed on. Trigger-point therapy applies pressure to client’s muscles to release these pain-causing points and bring long-lasting pain relief. Trigger Point Therapy is for almost everyone. Muscles with active trigger points are always weaker than normal muscles and unable to move through their full range of motion. Often because they are unable to perform their normal function, other muscles are recruited to perform the activity of the compromised muscle. These secondary muscles can go on to develop trigger points themselves if the original muscle is not treated. Trigger Point Therapy is very useful in the relief of, back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, knee pain, sciatica, headaches, muscle pain.
Myofascial pain syndrome is a chronic pain disorder caused by sensitivity and tightness surrounding muscle tissue. This tissue surrounds each muscle aiding in smooth movement while we are active. Trauma, inflammatory responses, and/or surgical procedures create Myofascial restrictions. Myofascial Release is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion.
