What is Deep Tissue Massage?
Deep tissue massage is a technique used specifically in the treatment of musculoskeletal issues – including strains and sports injuries, which are quite common. This technique involves applying pressure by using slow, deep strokes. Through this method, the inner layers of the muscles are targeted, facilitating a fast recovery. Concurrently, this diminishes the tension build up in the tissue and muscles, increasing blood flow and reducing inflammation.
How can Deep Tissue Massage benefit you?
Compared to traditional massage techniques that concentrate mainly on relaxation, deep tissue massage contributes to treating muscle pain. If you’re dealing with sciatica, high blood pressure, tennis elbow, fibromyalgia, plantar fasciitis, or other sports injuries, deep tissue massage can help.
Here at Select Spine and Sports Medicine, one of our proficient therapists works in tandem with your chiropractor to facilitate your specific treatment plan.
What is Sports Massage?
This form of therapy focuses on the soft tissue of a patient that is involved in strenuous physical activity. Soft tissue represents the connective tissue, encompassing skin, tendons, muscles, ligaments and fascia. Sports massage represents a mixture of several massage techniques, usually customized, depending on the type of activities a patient is engaged in.
When properly administered, a sports massage can contribute to flushing out lactic acid out of the muscles. Optimized blood flow to the targeted area and a diminished recovery time are other common benefits of a sports massage.
