Sports massage is specific and targeted massage technique that aims to release trigger points (knots), relieve delayed-onset muscle soreness (DOMS), reduce muscle tightness,
In releasing these tensions, sports massage can help to enhance recovery and prevent injuries.
The technique involves deep muscle and fascia releases and is suitable not only for active individuals but also sedentary office workers. These group of patients usually have very tight postural muscles that often leads to neck aches and pains.
Sports massage is often used in recovery phase of a training cycle, where tight muscles are “reset” so that the body is ready to handle the load again. This is a very effective way to prevent re-injury.
At BMJ Therapy – Physiotherapy Singapore, we offer sports massage therapy for individuals who are constantly engaging in sports as well as for individuals who experience muscle distress caused when they have taken part in a sports activity.
