What is Sports injury Massage?

Sports injury massage is a specialised therapy designed to treat and prevent injuries related to sports and physical activities. It focuses on enhancing athletic performance, reducing muscle soreness, and accelerating recovery from sports-related injuries.

Benefits of Sports Injury Massage

Our Approach

At Activ8 Myotherapy, our approach to sports injury massage combines deep tissue techniques, therapeutic stretching, and targeted muscle manipulation. We tailor each session to your specific sport and injury, ensuring that the treatment aligns with your athletic goals and recovery needs.

How Sports Injury Massage Works

The therapy involves applying firm pressure to specific muscles and connective tissues, breaking down scar tissue, improving blood flow, and reducing muscle tension. Techniques such as deep tissue massage, myofascial release, and stretching are used to address and alleviate the pain.
