Sports Massage for Athletes


Free Consultation

Sports massage is a type of manual therapy that can help athletes recover from injury, prepare for a sporting event, or prevent the possibility of injury. This type of manual therapy often involves deep tissue simulation and joint mobilizations. The purpose of sports massage is to treat microtears in the muscles that have occurred as a result of excessive physical activity or to warm up the muscles before physical activity to reduce the occurrence of microtears. If you are looking for a sports physical therapist in Layton that specializes in sports massage, the professionals of Rock Run can assist you. Sports physical therapy is one of our top specialities and we are experienced in treating athlete injuries. The benefits of sports massage are various and can help athletes improve their overall performance. After a sports massage, many athletes report:

  • Increased range of motion in previously stiff joints
  • More flexibility
  • Increased sense of well-being
  • Better balance
  • Decreased muscle tension and muscle spasms
  • Improved sleep
  • A decrease in recovery time between workouts
  • Improvement in stiffness and pain

For the best sports physical therapy in Layton, Rock Run offers sports massage in conjunction with other manual therapies. Depending on your needs, our therapists may recommend various massage sessions. If you are dealing with improper alignment, multiple sessions may be needed to correct the imbalances in your muscles and ligaments. A mild injury may only need one massage session in conjunction with physical therapy. Some athletes prefer weekly or biweekly deep tissue sports massages to keep themselves aligned, flexible, and well balanced. Once you meet with your Rock Run physical therapist in Layton, you can discuss the treatment plan that is best for you.
