Welcome to Cannock Sports Injury Clinic
C.S.I. Clinic - What we are about!
When the body is not able to recover between sessions and performance is reduced, sports massage (and other treatments, such as paraffin wax etc.) can be most beneficial. Between & after sessions/exercise, muscles can become painful, joint/tendon pain can occur & inflammation arises. This then causes the area to become vulnerable and highly susceptible to injury, trauma & repetitive strain complications.
Sports massage (sole alone or coupled with other treatments, we offer) targets areas that hold tension, become injured or affected by repetitive movement/positions. It can be superficial to a very deep pressure massage. This may be painful, but allows for the removal of lactic acid/toxins within the soft tissue (muscles, tendons, ligaments), loosens & lengthens tight tissue. This then further protects the body from injury &/or soft tissue dysfunction. This then provides a quicker recovery from pain/injuries/tissue dysfunction etc.
Getting regular sports massages will help in reducing injury by breaking up lactic acid in muscle tissue that causes stress &/or tension, preventing repetitive &/or overuse injuries. Keeping the soft tissue loose, free from toxins/adhesions & in top shape will increase flexibility, not only in the muscles but also in tendons and ligaments, further reducing dysfunction & injury. Range of motion is increased over time as muscles are worked, making it easier to maintain good form/definition during workout sessions.
