Sports massage is the systematic manual manipulation of the soft-tissues, designed to produce specific responses in the athlete and improve their performance. Sports massage is used in training, preparation, recovery and injury management. Remedial massage is a closely related physical therapy method that incorporates a selection of well-documented manual techniques which have been developed to improve certain ailments or conditions, and in particular musculoskeletal problems. A sports therapist will be able to call upon a variety of sports and remedial massage techniques when working to improve function and performance, injuries, postural problems, restrictions and other conditions. more
