Sports injuries can and do occur while taking part in a sport or during exercise. Being out of shape, not properly warming up, and poor movement patterns can greatly increase the chance of injury.
Athletes of all levels should have routine checkups with a physician. This can often catch potential problems before they become a debilitating injury.
Common Sports Injuries
Some of the more common sports injuries that result in damage to the body include:
- Muscle strains
- Ankle sprains
- Broken bones
- Shoulder, elbow, or knee dislocations
- Reducing upper and lower back muscle pain
- Reducing muscle soreness
- Neck Pain
- Torn tendons and ligaments
- Muscle swelling
- Reducing pain
Trauma, repetitive movements, and overwork can cause injuries to muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Usually, these injuries heal by themselves over time. However, the formation of scar tissue during this process can cause a variety of problems in the long term, including chronic tension in muscles, decreased strength, flexibility, and range of motion, and chronic pain.
In addition to the formation of scar tissue, the muscles surrounding an injury will tighten up and lock down to protect the injured site. While this is necessary at the start of the healing process, it can cause problems later if not dealt with.

Physiological Effects of Injury Rehabilitation Therapy
Pumping – Fluids (blood and lymph) have difficulty moving through blood vessels and lymph vessels when muscles are tight and damaged. Injury Rehabilitation massage helps soften hyper-toned muscles increasing the movement of fluids and sending vital nutrients and energy to repair the tissue.
Increased tissue recovery – Deep tissue massage causes the pores in the tissue membranes to open, allowing fluids and nutrients needed for healing to flow through. In addition, waste products in your muscle tissue are flushed out lessening inflammation. More nutrients and less waste products help in expediting the recovery process.
Increased flexibility and Range of Motion – Muscles that are hypertoned and full of trigger points (knots) and scar tissue do not stretch or contract to their full capability. This leads do a decreased range of motion in the joints those muscles affect. Injury Rehabilitation massage works to restore normal tone in the muscles, calm trigger points, and break up scar tissue. As these changes occur, flexibility and range of motion are restored and enhanced.
Reduced Scar tissue – Scar tissue forms over time as a result of injuries and trauma. Scar tissue is actually stronger than the original muscle tissue. Unfortunately, it creates issues with muscles, tendons, and ligaments leading to rigid tissues more susceptible to injury and pain. The breaking up of scar tissue has a profound impact on the health of the muscles and other soft tissues.
Pain reduction – Reducing tension, calming trigger points, restoring healthy fluid movement, and softening hypertoned muscles often results in noticeable pain reduction. Healthy muscles don’t hurt. In addition, Injury Rehabilitation massage often leads to the release of endorphins, the body’s natural pain medicators.
Relaxation – Injured muscles keep the body’s nervous systems on high alert. Injury Rehabilitation massage helps to calm the nervous system, leading to full body relaxation, not just in the muscles.
Psychological Effects of Injury Rehabilitation Therapy
Anxiety reduction – Injuries often cause anxiety until healing occurs. Getting the right massage therapy treatment for your condition or injury is crucial. The right treatment helps heal and relax your muscles. Anxiety is reduced and/or eliminated as the injury heals and progressively feels better. Lower anxiety levels allow one to live a more fulfilling life.
Injury rehabilitation therapy is one method to relieve lower back pain, upper back pain, knee pain, shoulder pain, and neck pain.
