The life of an athlete is a strict one. With a strict diet, strict schedule to work around and the overall working of one’s muscles, it’s inevitable for your muscles to get tired. While implemented rest days are a great way to give your muscles a break, they need much more than that to withstand the lifestyle of an athlete.
At Coastal Chiropractic, Massage & Wellness, your Greenacres massage therapy facility, we offer a massage that is based entirely on the attention that an athlete’s soft muscle tissue needs.
For an athlete to achieve their optimal performance, their bodies must be able to obtain the flexibility needed. Massages stretch muscle fibers where flexibility is maintained. With high intensity workouts or a busy practice schedule, muscle fibers tighten. This increases your chance for injury.
Massage therapy improves circulation, which makes movement for an athlete smoother and breathing during exercise easier. Having strong circulation keeps blood and oxygen pumping through the body, which in turn improves the effectiveness of an athlete’s training and lowers the chances of injury.
An athlete is likely to overwork at times, which is hard on the muscles. Having a deep tissue and soft tissue massage weekly helps alleviate any pain that the muscles are feeling, whether that be from overwork, stress or injury.
These are only 3 of the benefits of partaking in an athlete’s massage at your massage therapy location in Greenacres. The changes that your body will face and the difference it will make on your athletic abilities will be noticeable.
