Give Your Knees a Hand with Sports Injury Massage in Ipswich
“Wear and tear” is not a phrase related only to automobiles, but also to the human body. Athletes add wear and tear to their joints and muscles daily and, depending on the particular activity, they are vulnerable to a long list of potential injuries and chronic pain. Sports injury massage can relieve not only the immediate pain, but also the tension and spasms that can lead to further harm.
The knee is one of the most common sources of pain for athletes in any sport. Ruptured ligaments, sprains, and dislocations all affect the soft tissues of the knee joint, which can result in incomplete healing, scar tissue from tearing or surgery, and repetitive re-injury. A 2014 study by the Department of Physical Therapy, Ithaca College, found that a lack of mobility after injury, a condition known as soft tissue restriction, is commonly overlooked and left untreated, which limits an athlete’s ability to return to their sport.
AP Therapies offers professional sports injury massage in Ipswich and the surrounding Queensland area for those suffering from, or wishing to avoid, chronic sports injuries, pain, and restricted mobility. The methods used in sports injury massage focus on restoring elasticity and mobility to joints and muscles, dislodging adhered scar tissue, and relieving tension and muscle pain.
And the benefits of sports injury massage are certainly not limited to the knees. Other injuries that affect the soft tissues include tennis elbow, shin splints and sprains, all of which can be combated with sports injury massage. For those in Ipswich, professional sports injury massage is close at hand at AP Therapies.
