Sports Massage Therapy for Active Individuals in Freehold, NJ
Often a key component of a balanced training program, sports massage therapy is appropriate for athletes of all levels – world-class professionals, weekend joggers, and everyone in between can potentially benefit. Many sports medicine specialists, including the doctors of osteopathic medicine (DOs) at Advanced Health and Wellness Center of New Jersey in Freehold, NJ, believe that a complete workout routine includes not only performing the exercise itself, but also addressing the resulting wear and tear on the body, as well as the minor injuries that naturally occur with strenuous movement. The physiological and psychological benefits of therapeutic massage make it an ideal complement to a total conditioning program.
At Advanced Health and Wellness Center of New Jersey in Freehold, we fully tailor the techniques used during a sports massage to an athlete’s chosen sport. This is important because it allows us to focus on specific muscle groups in areas of the body that are stressed by sudden or repetitive movements. Much more than simply providing a relaxing spa experience – although it can do that, too – a specially designed sports massage can:
- Promote flexibility
- Enhance range of motion
- Reduce fatigue
- Alleviate muscle pain and stiffness
- Improve endurance
- Prevent injuries
- Help prepare both the body and the mind for optimal performance
- Shorten post-performance and injury recovery time
If you routinely stretch your physical limits through movement, a periodic sports massage would likely be a beneficial addition to your current conditioning regimen. This holds true whether you participate in a traditional sport, such as running, cycling, hiking, swimming, skiing, or tennis, or you dance, garden, or care for small children.
