At Living Touch Massage, we see a steady flow of athletes who suffer from sports injuries. In most occasions, the injuries are minor, but the highly competitive nature of athletics, especially at the high school and collegiate levels, athletes are pushed to perform without a chance to recover fully. As a result, minor injuries inhibit performance and can turn into a much more serious injury. But, the faster an injury is addressed, the faster it can be resolved.
Massage encourages circulatory movement and relaxes muscles, while helping the body pump more oxygen and nutrients into tissues and vital organs that allow accelerated recovery. Through a customized massage regimen, Living Touch Massage is able to help athletes prevent and recover from injuries, as well as increase strength and flexibility.
After an injury like a sprained ankle or strained muscle, massage can help nurture young athletes back to full strength. Before seeking out massage therapy, athletes should always consult with their primary care physician to be sure the injury is not serious or life threatening. Living Touch Massage has worked with a variety of athletes, and in addition to injury recovery, we have seen athletes excel in their sport. By committing to a continual massage program, we can help prevent injuries, accelerate the recovery process, and even increase performance.
