The main focus of sports massage is in the treatment and prevention of musculoskeletal injuries, whether or not it's due to sport or exercise. Anyone can get injured, and how an injury heals can have long-term impacts on a person's structure and function.
Sports massage is designed to assist in correcting problems and imbalances in soft tissue that are caused by repetitive physical activity or trauma (whether pounding the pavements or sitting at a desk clicking a mouse), or by postural issues - such as those caused by carrying a heavy bag on one shoulder, consistently wearing high heels or spending a lot of time in an inefficient sitting position.
It can also help in the recovery of injuries such as sprains and strains, help improve the motility of scar tissue and improve the functioning of the respiratory and gastrointestinal systems.
Essentially, if there is stiffness, pain or dysfunction in any part of your muscular system, or you would like to prevent any such problems from occurring, sports massage may be able to help.
