Why choose sports massage? Today, Sports Massage has become an integral component of a winning game plan. In case after case, Sports Massage has helped athletes achieve greater heights, prevent injuries, extend careers, and add a strategic edge to athletic training.Each of these factors can cause your body to produce tough, dense scar tissue in the affected area.  This scar tissue binds up and ties down tissues that need to move freely.  As scar tissue builds up, muscles become shorter and weaker.

Sports massage can help alleviate back pain, shin splints, shoulder pain, plantar fasciitis, knee problems and tennis elbow.  These are just a few of the many conditions that can be resolved quickly as they share the common root cause, overused muscles.  Over-used muscles ( and other soft tissues) change in three different ways: 
  • acute conditions (pulls, tears, collisions, etc)
  •  accumulation of small tears (micro-trauma)
  • not getting enough oxygen (hypoxia)
Each of these factors can cause your body to produce tough, dense scar tissue in the affected area.  This scar tissue binds up and ties down tissues that need to move freely.  As scar tissue builds up, muscles become shorter and weaker, tension on tendons causes tendonitis, and nerves can become trapped.  This can cause reduced range of motion, loss of strength ad pain.

If you are an active individual, sports massage would be a good compliment to your work out program.  Call to book your sports massage:  727-502-3464 or visit our website to schedule an appointment online.  http://www.healthybeingllc.com
