Our clinical and hands-on approach always maintains a high-quality standard of treatment. And our sports physio Adelaide and sports massage services are no different.

Our sports physiotherapists take the time to listen to your concerns, resulting in tailored treatments for each patient. We also work with other health professionals, such as sports massage therapists, to create tailored and comprehensive patient treatment plans.

What is Sports Physio Adelaide

Sports physiotherapy diagnoses, treats and prevents injuries incurred during athletic and leisure activities. The sports physio Adelaide must be thoroughly aware of the damage, the physical demands of their sport, and the athlete's short- and long-term objectives to manage sports injuries effectively.

Our physiotherapists collaborate with each athlete to understand these demands and create a management strategy that will enable them to return to sport at their highest level of performance with the slightest chance of further injury.

Our physiotherapists work alongside our sports massage therapists to ensure patients receive a personalised treatment that aligns with their overall health goals.

    What is Sports Massage?

    Sports massage benefits athletes and people who live active lives because it helps increase flexibility, prevent injuries, and treat injuries or strains that have already happened.

    This type of massage therapy uses different massage and muscle manipulation techniques to help treat sports injuries and strained muscles. It stimulates and stretches constricted muscles while also enhancing soft tissue health.

    This aids in easing the stress and tension that exercise or strenuous activities might cause to accumulate in the body. In addition to helping people recover and preventing injuries, sports massage can also help fix soft tissue muscle imbalances caused by repetitive movements, which are common in tennis and golf players.

    Athletes’ careers and performance on the field can suffer significantly from injury. Sports or intense tissue massage targets the deeper tissue layers in the body. Regular massages before and after games help to warm up and loosen muscles, assisting in faster recovery and better conditioning.

    Types of sports massage therapy

    Sports massage uses techniques from many different fields, like physiotherapy, but here are some of the most common ones:

    Soft Tissue Massage

    Soft tissue massage concentrates on joints and soft tissue to relieve muscle stress and pain. It stretches muscle fibers to improve circulation, increase flexibility, reduce discomfort, and release tension.

    Deep Tissue Massage

    Prolonged or repetitive activity can damage muscle fibres, and toxins can build up, causing pain, discomfort, and stiffness. Deep tissue massage is the application of pressure (sometimes referred to as "stripping") with the elbows or hands and utilising the fingers to apply pressure to particular muscle fibres to help reduce tension.

    Whole Body Massage

    A Swedish-style full-body massage can help athletes relax and refocus in the downtime between games.

    Benefits of Sports Massage:

    Here are some ways seeing a sports massage therapist in Adelaide can benefit you:

    Increase Flexibility

    Whether you’re an athlete or lead an active lifestyle, training can take a toll on your muscles and potentially result in muscle rigidity. Sports massage can help increase flexibility and improve performance before a big game.

    Speed Up The Recovery Process

    Sports massage can aid in a quick recovery. Massage helps improve blood circulation. Boosting your blood flow will help repair muscles and other tissues that can get damaged when you train.

    Increase Oxygen and Nutrient Supply

    Your body will demand more oxygen and nutrients when playing a sport or exercising. Massage can help your muscles get more oxygen and nutrients because it can help your blood flow better.

    It helps to relax and clear the mind

    It’s not a secret that massage can help calm and clear the mind, even bringing you to a meditative state and allowing you to focus better. This, in turn, can result in better performance on and off the field.

    Reduce Pain

    Sports massage is an excellent way to help lift muscle tension and reduce the inflammation that causes pain. So, sports massage can help reduce muscle swelling and tension while getting you ready to do your best.
