Sports Therapy – What Is It?

Do you understand what Sports Therapy is? Or what benefits it can bring you? If the answer is no, then don’t worry – you’re not alone. It is surprising just how many people we come across here at A1 Infinite Performance that are unsure about Sports Therapy and how it can help them… 


What Is Sports Therapy?


Sports Therapy simply focuses on preparing oneself for long-term health. Whether that be preparing an athlete for maximum mental and physical performance during their training, or to help mend any issues they may have adopted from an injury or accident. Or alternatively you can go along to visit your local Sports Therapist to help with reducing stress tension, general aches and pains causing you difficulty with life’s everyday activities, or to help ease the discomfort that could be caused from a workout regime. 


How Do I Know If I Need Sports Therapy? 


This can differ depending on the specific individual. If you are not an athlete by career, and you just like to upkeep a rigorous fitness regime then you may often experience the following symptoms such as regular aches and pains, a key area of your body causing you concern, you struggle with certain day to day tasks. Or perhaps, in general, you lead quite a stressful lifestyle, or you work in an extremely stressful or demanding environment causing tension in your overall posture, or you just think you may need to start looking after yourself more? Sports Therapy could be the answer to your problems with a deep, intense massage to fix your issues and help to relax you. 

What Are The Benefits Of Sports Therapy?


We have to remember that no matter how fit and healthy we feel, our bodies are certainly not indestructible and over time, if pushed to our absolute limit, you will begin to notice or feel a difference and experience issues. The best way to prevent this from happening is to be sensible with your body when working out and simply look after yourself. Treat yourself from time to time; if you do happen to be a professional athlete, whether that be in football, swimming, horse-riding, etc – book yourself in for a Sports Therapy massage every now and then to give your muscles and joints the revitalising care they need. Trust us, your career will thank you for it! 


There are many benefits that can come from enjoying Sports Therapy, such as:


– Helps to reduce tension and your body’s waste products (which can ultimately cause pain)


– Your muscles will relax with the heat generated, circulation and stretching


– Your mechanoreceptors that sense touch, pressure, tissue length and warmth are stimulated causing a reflex relaxation 


– Enhances your mental relaxation 


– Reduced anxiety


– Improves your overall mood


– Soothes the mind and can be a release of distraction 


– Can increase mental alertness
