If you're an avid athlete or simply participate in sports often, then you know that injuries are inevitable from time to time. To avoid having lasting injuries that deteriorate your ability to completely play or compete in sports, we're here to offer our professional services for athletic injuries ranging from a foot to arm to generic muscle injuries. Athletic injuries, when not treated immediately, can ultimately result in poor healing conditions and can leave you with lasting pain, even after the injury itself.
Foot injuries are common in sports because of the need to run and jump. When running or jumping, your feet are given the pressure of balancing your body weight and staying active in the game. When this doesn’t happen, it can result in your foot or ankles becoming injured, making it difficult to walk or run. If you’ve been severely injured, we recommend seeing a medical professional before coming to us for assistance. If you’ve been cleared by your medical professional but still find that you’re experiencing pain in your foot or ankle, you can contact us for further information on how we can care for foot and ankle injuries with exercises and deep tissue massages that help the joints too.
Muscle injuries include those that occur when a muscle is strained or sprained. This often happens when running, jumping, or simply overworking a muscle that is not used to the activity level. When muscle injuries are not given proper care, they can lead to stiffness and soreness that can be difficult to rid the muscle area of if not treated right away. We recommend our sports massages for athletic injuries that include muscles and joints, where you might need targeted care and attention.
Arm and Shoulder Injuries
Arm and shoulder injuries can happen in certain sports like tennis, football, and basketball, where your arm and shoulder strength is at peak and needed for optimal participation. In putting force and pressure into your arms and shoulders, you’re more likely to overstretch or overextend your arms and shoulders, which can create discomfort and a muscle strain in your joints and shoulder blades. Arm and shoulder injuries don’t need to stop you from perfecting your serve or shooting hoops on target, but they can if you aren’t treated by professional massage therapists!
Neck and Back Injuries
Neck and back injuries are slightly less common in non-contact sports. However, in sports like football, where the players quite literally tackle each other, your body is more prone to an athletic injury from being hit with blunt force and at awkward positions. This can sometimes result in the need for back braces and neck braces until your posture and ability to sit straight has improved. To avoid having a neck or back brace in case of an injury, our massages are designed to halt the pain before it spreads and reduces its appearance and swelling by opening its blood flow and encouraging stimulation of oxygen to the source of the pain.
