SportsINJURIES

Massage therapy is a system of treatment that works by stroking, kneading, tapping or pressing the soft tissues of the body.
Massage therapy has been used for centuries. It aims to relax you mentally and physically. It may concentrate on the muscles, the soft tissues, or on the acupuncture points.

Massage techniques can range from being soft and gentle to vigorous and brisk. They may sometimes even be a bit uncomfortable. Therapists may treat your whole body or concentrate on a specific part, such as your head, neck or shoulders.
There are several types of massage:

• Swedish massage – most common type of full body massage
• aromatherapy massage
• deep tissue massage – used for long standing, deep muscular problems
• sports massage – used before or after sport or to help heal sports injuries
• Shiatsu
• neuromuscular massage – helps to balance the nervous system and the muscle
• reflexology – applied to points on the hands and feet with the aim of improving the health of other parts of the body

Pinpointing biomechanical abnormalities via gait & posture analysis.

  • Gate and Posture analysis
  • £5.00
  • Included with all massages
  • What does a gait analysis show? When an athlete is analysed statically, dynamically, and then running on the treadmill during a gait analysis, it serves to provide a unique, personal movement "map." Gait analysis uncovers precisely how your body is moving.

Helping to maintain flexibility & suppleness

  • Stretch Bands
  • £10/15min
  • Included with all massages
  • Why it's important… Stretching keeps the muscles flexible, strong, and healthy, and we need that flexibility to maintain a range of motion in the joints. Without it, the muscles shorten and become tight. Then, when you call on the muscles for activity, they are weak and unable to extend all the way.

Sport injuries

Prevention First

The best way to deal with sports injuries is to keep them from happening in the first place.

Think of avoiding injury as just another part of playing by the rulebook. Knowing the rules of the game you're playing and using the right equipment can go a long way toward preventing injuries.

Types of Sports Injuries

Common reasons why we get injured playing sports include:
·         not training or playing properly
·         training too much
·         not wearing the right footwear
·         not wearing the right safety equipment
·         rapid growth during puberty

There are two kinds of sports injuries

1.    Acute traumatic injuries are things like fractures, sprains and strains, concussions, and cuts. They usually happen after a blow or force — like getting tackled in football or wiping out while skateboarding.

2.    Overuse injuries include things like stress fractures and tendonitis. These injuries are also called chronic injuries because they happen over time, usually from repetitive training, like running, overhand throwing, or serving a ball in tennis. Overuse injuries can be just as damaging as acute injuries, even though they might not seem serious at first. If they're not treated, they usually get worse.
