Professional sports stars, amateur athletes, and even those of us aspiring to live more active lifestyles, can each benefit from sports massage therapy.
Sports massages therapy takes into consideration the impact of certain activities on specific joints, muscle groups, tendons, ligaments, and soft tissue groups. This allows our sports massage therapist to focus on a patient's unique trouble spots, such as shoulder soreness after a basketball tournament, or hamstring tightness after a big race. Sports massage therapists have an in-depth understanding of sports and overuse injuries and can help minimize pain, decrease recovery time, increase mobility and reduce the risk of injury.
As a part of our multidisciplinary care team, our massage therapists take SOAP notes of each encounter to ensure your physical therapist, primary care physician, chiropractor and strength coach are always in the loop, which helps to ensure optimal, comprehensive care, every step of the way.
