SPORTS MASSAGE FOR ATHLETES

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 Utah 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 Utah, 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 Utah, you can discuss the treatment plan that is best for you.

I was pleased with the care at Rock Run. They were courteous, kind, and very professional. They pushed me hard so as to strengthen my knee, and help me get into a good place by the end of my treatments

— Terry E., Posted April 20, 2020

This was my very first injury in my life. As scary and unsure about how things can turn out, it was nice to have Brenda and her team be so kind and informative. I was able to schedule around work and get in when needed. I would have liked more goal and advancements in treatments from day to day, but other than that its been a great time!

After having a third shoulder surgery, I was apprehensive of physical therapy and the results I hoped to achieve. My treatment was better than expected and Im well on my way to a full recovery. The Rock Run team is very knowledgeable and respectful. I would come back anytime

I had a great experience with Rock Run Physical Therapy. Professional, knowledgeable and friendly staff. They took the time to get to know me and I felt like I was always in good hands. The physical therapists helped me become more informed with my shoulder issues, and helped me in making decisions for further treatment.

— Randy J., Posted April 20, 2020

Great visit Consistent pain that was present when I first came here is now gone. Hopefully with the exercises I have been given for home, the pain will not return.

— Randal G., Posted April 20, 2020
