Sports Massage in Knoxville
Sports massage is designed specifically for athletes who desire cutting edge performance and to remain injury-free as possible. A massage therapist that is specifically trained in sports massage is a vital part of a sports person’s health care team. Massage therapy should be integrated into a regular training program, whether the athlete is looking to run their first race or preparing for an Ironman competition.
Preparation for a sporting event requires rigorous training, as the athlete pushes their body to extreme limits to achieve performance goals. Muscular imbalances can quickly occur leaving the athlete vulnerable for potential overuse and injury. Also, a sport persons’ body is at risk for postural changes as their training schedule progresses and intensifies. A trained sports massage therapist can identify postural imbalances and help correct soft tissue restrictions and adhesions.
A skilled sports massage therapist will provide an initial consultation to review health history, training program and discuss current physical complaints or difficulties. Postural assessments can pinpoint specific muscular or postural imbalances that may be impeding performance. Schedule a sports massage appointment today to add me to your healthcare team.
