Some Physiotherapists may also be trained in Sports Massage Therapy or Deep Tissue Massage, particularly if they regularly see athletic clients, or those that have ongoing musculoskeletal conditions.
It has been found that such Physiotherapy and Massage Therapy techniques compliment each other, heightening the benefits of each solo therapy. A combination of the two therapies are thought to work well as routine maintenance for athletes or those with long-term conditions, as part of sports Physiotherapy care or for a specific event, or as rehabilitation.

What is Sports Massage?

Sports Massage is a type of massage that is typically used to treat sports injuries or long-term musculoskeletal conditions that are isolated to a specific part of the body, usually a result of over-training, trauma, muscle imbalance, or poor biomechanics. The treatment aims to aid recovery, reduce the risk of recurrence, or assist with performance ahead of an event.

Benefits of Sports Massage

Sports Massage has a number of benefits, both mental and physical, which compliment Physiotherapy very well:

  • Increased range of motion;
  • Increased flexibility;
  • Increased sense of wellbeing;
  • Decreases recovery time;
  • Decreased muscle tension;
  • Decreased muscle spasms;
  • Better sleep.
