Who Should Get Massage Therapy
Here at SportsTec Clinic, we welcome absolutely everyone! We are equipped and qualified to answer the needs of recreational and professional athletes, as well as people who are suffering from chronic pain caused by a sedentary lifestyle.
Therapeutic massage is suitable for people of all ages, even as a standalone treatment. In fact, we have a long list of clients who arrive at our clinic just to enjoy a massage that will keep them relaxed and in good physical condition.
The value of massage therapy is best illustrated by an example. Sometimes, someone with shoulder impingement may have tight pectorals (pecs) and tight latissimus dorsi (lats), which restrict the arm as it goes overhead. This then means muscles have to work harder to lift the arm up overhead, jamming the shoulder and causing pain. Release through the muscles and connective tissue makes this easier and therefore reduces pain.
