Soft tissue techniques employed by our sports
massage therapist are effective in the management of
both acute and chronic injuries. For example, adding lymphatic
massage to the standard care procedure in the acute stage of
injury will improve control of secondary, edema formation and enhance
lymphatic uptake of fluid throughout the healing cycle.
Trigger point techniques reduce the spasms and pain that occur,
both in the injured and compensation muscles.
Cross-fiber friction techniques
applied during the sub-acute and maturation phases of healing improve the formation of strong
and flexible repair tissue, which is vital in maintaining full pain-free range of motion during rehabilitation.
