Necessary Part of Athlete's Program for Injury Prevention and Rehabilitation
Sports Massage is mainly addressed to athletes but also to those, who face musculoskeletal problems. Designed especially for athletes and mainly for the ones that have been worn off, sports massage is highly recommended as a part of their program because it highly contributes to the prevention of injuries.
In the Physioathens Modern Physiotherapy Centre, we specialize in Sports Massage, employing a range of methods, like Soft Tissue Release (STR), Muscle Energy Technique (MET), Neuromuscular Technique (NMT): -Connective Tissue Massage (CTM), whose main purpose is to break up adhesions, the “knots” in the soft tissue and reduce lactic acid in the muscles.
Sports massage is designed to warm up the athlete before an event, sustain him throughout and help him recover after it, preventing injuries, releasing the tension and relieving the pain.
By focusing on the muscles, ligaments, joints and nerve tissue, applying specialized massage and the indicated pressure, however, we ensure the health and well-being of the athlete and accelerate its natural ability to heal.
