Sports Massage

Physio for India is formed after understanding the difficulties of private practitioners. With almost one lakh and 25 thousand physiotherapists in India Massage is known for its benefits for hundreds of decades.

Massage itself has evolved with many branches. Some of them are Ayurvedic, Swedish and sports massage.

Sports massage has gained its popularity since sports started developing in India. Sports Massage is not only for Athletes, but also for the general population who want to reduce the stiffness for their tight muscles, this can also be for corporate sectors which have more sitting jobs. Sports massage is also for gym goers, who are pushing their limits to maximum level to develop strength. Sports Massage basically improves the recovery time.

Sports massage therapy can be useful for pre, during and post exercises depending on different techniques. Athletes have discovered that specially designed sports massage promotes flexibility, reduces fatigue, improves endurance, helps prevent injuries and prepares their body and mind for optimal performance.

Sports massage is science in itself, massage therapists basically learn Anatomy, Muscles etc to optimise the effect. Sports Massage has its benefits at various systems of the body;

  • Muscles:- Sports massage specially done with grade 2 or 3 level, helps in reducing the stiffness of the muscles, relaxes the muscles and also helps in quick recovery post event or exercises.
  • Joints:- Normally, massages are not recommended on joints or ligaments. However, indirect massage on muscles, helps in improving joint range of motion which increases flexibility to certain extent. But Massage is not an alternative to Flexibility training
  • .
  • Nervous system:- Some techniques of Massage help stimulate the nervous system which stimulates the muscles and gives sense of preparedness. However, massage is just an adjunct to warm up, and cannot be replaced.
  • Blood flow:- Massage is useful to flush out the waste metabolites, and reduces soreness pain or stiffness pain in muscles or tendons.
  • Relaxation:- Massage is known for its relaxation techniques, massage releases many good hormones which is directly related to mood of the human being, after massage one can feel the sense of relaxation and also reduces the stress.

There is much research done to prove its effectiveness. A 2010 study in the journal of Strength and Conditioning Research found that even a 30-second massage improved hip-flexor range of motion. Another study conducted by Margaret Jones, Ph.D. of the American College of Sports Medicine, demonstrated a notable trend toward decreased muscle soreness in the athletes who received a Massage either before or after exercise. As study done in 2008 shows, the massage enhances the recovery by means of physiological and psychological benefits.

How do you identify the Sports Massage Therapist- this is a branch of Sports Science Team, and therefore they should be certified in sports massage therapy and also should be able to best judge the post effectiveness of Sports Massage Therapy.

Sports massage is good for anyone who wants to relax or reduce their muscle stiffness, however, a proper dose is very important and that should be properly directed by your massage therapist.
