The Benefits of Sports Massage


With its joint aim of injury rehabilitation and prevention, sports massage is an incredibly important aspect of healthcare for those taking part in regular exercise. As one of the specialist areas of expertise that our team at Gosforth Physio & Wellness excel at, we provide sports massage in Newcastle, guiding both professional athletes and casual sports players to being pain and injury free. With a range of advantages to the practice, that are physical, physiological and psychological, we’ve listed some key sports massage benefits here:

Enhance Performance

For anybody engaging in regular sports, professional sports massage will help to enhance your performance in whatever sport you engage in. Muscles, tendons and ligaments that are well looked after will allow you to swim further, run faster, lift heavier, and jump higher.

Alleviate Pain & Muscle Soreness

Delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) is the reason why many people struggle to move properly a day or two after a workout. Sports massage will allow your muscle tissue to relax, helping them to repair and alleviating your pains.

Rehabilitate Injury Quicker

Additionally, a sports massage gives any injured muscles the chance to properly heal before getting back to exercise. Our sports massage specialists will ensure that you receive correct repair to any injuries, allowing you to get back to sport in a reduced time frame.

Improve Joint Movement

By stretching out your muscles, a sports massage can also increase the synovial fluid within your joints, leading to improved overall joint movement.

Relaxation & Stress Relief

It’s a fact - the body does not function properly when under stress. Sports massage increases relaxation by reducing the production of stress hormones running. This results in a more efficient vascular system, lowering blood pressure and preventing unwanted illnesses.
