Sports Injuries

Different sports activities and training programs can cause verity of athletic injuries. Wear and tear from repetitive overuse, maximum exertion, and hard contact are some of the leading causes of sports injuries. Sports injuries are more common in young and then in older athletes. 

If you’re curious, how not to get sports injuries, well, sitting on the sofa is not the answer. A general rule to prevent sports injuries is to do warm-up routines at the beginning of the training session and ending the training with proper cool-down stretches. We should make a distinction here, that stretching before practice is better than nothing. But stretching is not a proper pre-workout warm-up. Best pre-workout warm-ups are active dynamic joint mobilization techniques. 

Please, remember that with age it is wise to start softening your training and games, and watch even closely your postural and movement patterns. If you happen to injure yourself, you should be resting not training more and harder, let your body to recover. Keep the injured body part elevated if possible. Immediately after you get injured, ice the area. Ice is good for pain and inflammation. You should see a specialist and get it checked out. It’s better safe than sorry.

Different sports injuries produce various symptoms and complications. Here are some of the most common types of sports injuries:

  • Achilles tendon rupture. The Achilles tendon break or rupture.
  • Sprains. Overstretching or tearing of the ligaments.
  • Strains. Overstretching or tearing of muscles or tendons.
  • Knee injuries. Injuries that interfere with how the knee joints move. Ranging from overstretching to a tear in the muscles or tissues in the knee.
  • Swollen muscles. Swelling is a natural reaction to an injury, causing pain, and weakness.
  • Fractures. Broken bones.
  • Dislocations. When a bone is forced out of its socket.
  • Rotator cuff injury. An injury of any of the four pieces of muscle that form the rotator cuff.

Clinical massage therapy is an effective treatment for chronic muscle spasms, tension, and sports injuries. Therapeutic sports massage, relaxation, and deep tissues techniques are great massage modalities that focus on treating constant tension, spasmodic conditions, soft tissue, and sports injuries, aches, and pain associated with muscle spasms. Sports massage, combined with deep tissue, can help to reduce muscle stiffness, cramps, and tension. This can help with your athletic injuries. Sports massage will help to improve range of motion and relaxation by lowering your heart rate, blood pressure, and helping you relax mentally and emotionally.

Usually, for the first treatment, people come in for a sixty-minute sports massage treatment to try and see if my style of work would benefit their sports injury. And typically, they feel little better right after the first visit. They leave the office with little less pain and a bit bigger smile. For years patient’s feedback has been that after a clinical session with me, they feel ok for a day or two.
