High school athletes and performance pressures have led to unnecessary injuries. Massage therapy will target troubled areas and treat their body to withstand today's sports requirements. Aside from sports, massage is beneficial during growth spurts as bones lengthen at a greater rate than surrounding tissue. In turn this can be helpful for a child's immune system and those with learning, behavioral and sensory difficulties. Massage has also been shown to decrease hyperactivity and irritability.
Sports massage works to decrease muscle tension, targeting specific muscles and tendons to relieve strain or stress.Teen athletes require additional consideration during treatment. Teen athletes’ bodies are still growing and developing, and as their bones and muscles are getting longer, the muscles will often feel sore or even painful—before the rigors and strain of athletic training.
Not only does sports massage reduce pain, but it also improves muscle flexibility and range of motion. This helps the growing body and also improves overall physical condition as well as athletic performance.
We treat teens for many reasons including, but not limited to what you see below:
Falls in gymnastics, cheer and dance
Repetitive use injuries from throwing or swimming
Missteps on the basketball court or soccer field
Strained muscles from track or over-reaching in volleyball
Let our therapists come up with a plan to get you back into the activity.
