Massage therapy uses a variety of techniques to manipulate your joints and soft tissue to improve your body’s overall health. Massage increases the body’s supply of oxygen and nutrients to your muscles, which help release waste from the muscle tissue. Massage also accelerates your body's own natural ability to heal itself.
Here at Sydney Sports and Orthopaedic Physiotherapy, we take pride in fixing sports injuries or simply offering advice and provide a range of sports massage services.
As sports people ourselves, we know the value of a good sports massage but more importantly we know what works. Remedial Massage Therapy uses the same techniques as Sports Massage, but is applied to non-sports people. It is used to aid recovery from the injuries of everyday life and to help redress postural problems. We are remedial massage therapists specialising in Sport and Remedial Massage where each treatment is tailored to the individuals needs.
By receiving regular massage treatments we can help you prevent a problem area developing into a more serious and/or longer term condition. As we all have the same musculoskeletal system then these treatments can be beneficial to anyone, whether or not they partake in serious/frequent sporting activities or simply have general muscular issues they would like addressed.
The key to a good sports and remedial massage is to effect a change in the tissues and then to ensure any rehab exercises are effective in changing the structure of the body back to a more normal state
