Do you need a sports massage in Lexington? There is not one athlete that sports massages are directed towards. This type of massage benefits anyone from an occasional jogger to a professional athlete. This is because sports massage therapy is tailored to the sport and the athlete. During a sports massage, the therapist at Eagle Creek Massage focuses on parts of the body that are repetitively stressed and overworked.
It is common to use sports massage as a part of an athlete’s regular training schedule. In order to prepare for an event, sports massage therapy is likely to be used as well as a means to minimize the amount of time need to recover from a maximum performance. Along with chiropractic adjustments, sports massage can increase flexibility and endurance. Athletes also can expect less fatigue. A substantial benefit for athletes that combine chiropractic adjustments and sports massage therapy is decreased likelihood of injury and maximum physical potential.
A primary benefit of combining these treatments is treating both the body’s musculature and structure. A study found that performing a single 45-second massage increases range of motion while another study found by receiving massages before or after a performance reduces the amount of muscular soreness the athlete feels.
