sports soft tissue therapy

Sports Soft Tissue Therapy (also known as sports massage) is a maintenance therapy designed to enhance and aid in athletic performance and recovery using specific combination of advanced soft tissue manipulation techniques to include friction, kneading and flushing. It is a type of soft tissue therapy designed for highly active people. Soft tissue therapy specializes in the treatment of the body’s soft tissues including the muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia. Sports Soft Tissue Therapy is not just for athletes but can benefit any active individual experiencing pain due to injury or restricted movements. More than a treatment for injuries, SSTT produces overwhelming benefits for athletes on the physical, physiological and psychological level. It is designed to prepare the athlete for their best performance, reduce fatigue and relieve muscle swelling and tension. Engaging in an active lifestyle is harsh on the body and can often lead to injuries in both the short and long term. To achieve optimal results multiple modalities may be incorporated along with muscle activation technique, corrective exercises and self treatment strategies.
