Sports massage is a form of massage that involves the manipulation of soft tissue such as muscles and fascia. It is a highly effective way of reducing muscle tightness and soreness, whether caused by training for a sport, injury or stresses of everyday life i.e. sitting over a laptop or phone.
During the session, we will assess your problem area, carry out the appropriate treatment and also provide a corrective/rehabilitation plan.
The clinic is designed for people with chronic pain, reoccurring injury or recovering from an injury (but can also be used for prehab or performance improvement).
Our initial consultation lasts for 90-120 minutes. This allows us to complete a very detailed assessment ensuring we can find the root cause of your problems, as well as providing treatment.
The assessment includes:
- Full injury history dating back to birth
- Postural Assessment
- Gait analysis/ movement pattern assessment (Anatomy in Motion - AiM)
- Joint Mobility (Functional Range Conditioning - FRC)
With this information we will provide treatment to rectify these issues, using a combination of corrective exercises and soft tissue therapy. We will also provide you with a corrective/rehabilitation plan.
