our Sports Massage program. Athletes are continually pushing the
envelope of performance leading to various strains, sprains and
other injuries. We provide orthopedic assessment in order to provide
the appropriate techniques for the condition present. Deep tissue
work along with myofascial release is often most effective in
working with common soft tissue issues that the athlete faces.
A critical component of any training regimen is prevention of
injuries. Working closely with a licensed massage therapist all
athletes can add another line of defense against injury. Getting to
know an athlete is the massage therapists strength. Being able to
monitor muscles and tissue through regular palpation will allow the
therapist to locate potential problem areas before they become
significant. Dealing with a tight hamstring or low back prior to it
becoming strained during activity will keep the athlete in the game
and not on the bench.
