Sports Massage At The Boxgrove Clinic

Sports massage can help improve circulation, reduce muscle tension, enhance flexibility, prevent injuries, and promote faster recovery after strenuous exercise. The sports massage therapists at The Boxgrove Clinic work closely with the physiotherapy team so that you have a joined up approach that will help you to improve your performance, bounce back from injury or speed up your rehabilitation following surgery.

An Introduction To Sports Massage

Sports massage is a specialist massage technique but not just for professional athletes. It is a great treatment for anyone that takes part in recreational sports or regular physical activity. Your therapist is likely to apply slightly deeper pressure and use more vigorous techniques than regular massage. The approach is designed to address muscle tension, soreness, and flexibility issues. However, we do not follow the ‘no gain, no pain’ philosophy so we only work to a level that you are comfortable with and at all times we welcome feedback so that we can adapt accordingly.

Pre-Event Massage

This type of massage is performed shortly before a sporting event or physical activity. It aims to stimulate the muscles, increase blood flow, and prepare the athlete for optimal performance. Pre-event massage is usually shorter in duration and involves brisk, invigorating strokes.

Post-Event Massage

After a sports activity, a post-event massage is performed to help the body recover. It focuses on reducing muscle soreness, eliminating waste products (such as lactic acid), and promoting relaxation. Post-event massage typically involves slower, gentler strokes and may include stretching.

Maintenance Massage

Maintenance or regular sports massage is done during training periods to prevent injuries and maintain the athlete’s physical condition. It targets specific muscle groups, helps identify and address imbalances, and supports overall muscle recovery.

FAQs about Sports Massage

No that’s not necessary. Our Physiotherapist is trained to evaluate and treat your concerns. However, if you wish to use private health insurance you should contact your insurer before making an appointment as they may require a referral from your GP.

During your first visit to The Boxgrove, the Physiotherapist will give you an initial assessment. This will include discussing the relevant problem, the suggested treatment, and your expected outcome. The suggested treatment will take place during this initial assessment and you may do some work in our Pilates Reformer Studio if relevant to your needs. A tailored treatment plan will then be discussed together and suggested exercises or advice given.

We recommend that you wear loose comfortable clothing. We may ask you to partially remove some clothing so that we can access the area to treat. We provide shorts should you need to change. All rooms are warm and blankets provided. We also use towels to maintain your privacy.

Your therapist will be able to determine approximately how many sessions will be required after the initial consultation.

Of course, if you are nervous or worried about your initial appointment please do bring a friend or family member with you. If you’re under 16 years then an adult will need to be present during the consultation.

All therapists at The Boxgrove are fully qualified, fully insured, and belong to the necessary governing bodies. Each one is hand-picked by us and is a specialist in their field of expertise.
