Stay in the Game With the Help of Sports Massage

crossfit classWhether you enjoy rugby, golf, cricket, or CrossFit, you’re likely to experience sore muscles at some point. Sports massage is an excellent modality to help athletes of all levels and ages experience relief from muscle pain and tightness.

Chiropractor Dr. Roddy Knight has been providing massage therapy for over 25 years. Each of his sessions focuses solely on the muscles, so 100% of the time it involves hands-on treatment to assist in recovery and loosening tight muscles, preparing for sport and post-activity recovery. Our chiropractor uses soft tissue trigger point therapy techniques. These methods have many benefits:

  • Increases blood flow
  • Decreases muscle tension
  • Warms up the tissues
  • Speeds up recovery from an injury
  • Promotes healing
  • Increases flexibility

A Complement to Other Therapies

Massage therapy is an ideal complement to physiotherapy, osteopathy, and chiropractic care.

As an ideal complement to physiotherapy, massage offers many physical and psychological benefits. This type of bodywork can reduce pain, swelling, and inflammation of soft tissues and muscles, and increase circulation to the affected area, which can help accelerate healing.

Also considered an excellent complement to osteopathy, massage offers many physical and psychological benefits that can help improve overall wellbeing. This treatment can ease pain and inflammation associated with osteopathy treatments, such as manual manipulation and stretching of soft tissues, while also offering additional benefits, such as relaxation and stress relief.

Chiropractic and massage also go hand-in-hand, as this form of bodywork can relax a patient’s muscles, which can help a chiropractor have easier access to the joints that need to be adjusted.


Do I have to be an athlete to benefit from this type of bodywork?

No, the techniques used can help athletes and non-athletes alike.

Does this type of modality hurt?

While some strokes used in this type of bodywork may initially feel uncomfortable after they are performed, you will experience a level of relief like you’ve never felt before, because the deep tissues have become relaxed.
