Muscle Injury Therapy, Sports Injury Treatment


Muscle Injury Therapy

Muscle Injury Therapy consists of a variety of hands-on techniques including massage, manipulation, stretching and dry needling. It can be used to treat soft tissue injuries (muscles, tendons, ligaments) on anyone, including top athletes, casual sports enthusiasts, young and not so young.

This deep tissue massage therapy is used to treat conditions including whiplash, tennis elbow, migraines, low back pain and frozen shoulder, which are often caused by the presence of trigger points in the surrounding muscles.

Neuromuscular Therapy

Neuromuscular therapy is a form of deep tissue massage, which delves deeper into the layers of muscles. It involves the treatment and de-activation of trigger points. These are sites of dysfunction or damaged tissue, which the body tries to protect by forming a spasm in order to protect the area from further injury. Trigger points can cause tremendous pain often emitting a referral of pain to other parts of the body. As a result the site of the pain might not always be the source of the problem.

Trigger Points can be deactivated manually using massage, Neuromuscular therapy, or stretching techniques. They can also be deactivated using Dry Needling, which involves using acupuncture needles in the dysfunctional area of the muscle. The results of of Trigger Point Dry Needling can often be very profound.

Sports massage can be used very effectively to prepare for sports events and
competitions. Many athletes training for marathons, matches and other competitions benefit enormously from having regular massage treatments. This helps maintain the flexibility and tone of the muscles and keeps them in excellent condition.
