Sports Massage Therapy Specific To Each Athlete
Advanced Corrective Bodywork provides Sports Massage Therapy to serious and recreational athletes in Wayzata and suburbs of Eden Prairie, Minnetonka, Plymouth, Maple Grove, and Orono, MN.
Sports massage therapy has helped many athletes such as football players, baseball players, golfers, tennis players, and even the weekend jogger, prepare for an event, reduce/eliminate injuries, and speed up recovery time.
Advanced Corrective Bodywork’s sports massage therapy is specific to each athlete. A plan is formulated based upon the athlete’s sport of choice. Sessions are focused on specific areas of the body that are stressed and overused from aggressive and repetitive movements associated with the activity of that sport. For instance, if you have ankle pain or a pulled hamstring, instead of receiving a full-body massage, Phil will focus on your ankle or hamstring.
Sports Massage Therapy will accomplish 3 goals:
- Optimize athletic performance.
- Decrease injury potential.
- Support soft tissue (muscles, tendons, and ligaments) recovery and healing
Sports Massage Therapy Promotes Flexibility, Reduces Fatigue, and Improves Endurance
Phil Gore, Master Bodyworker and Massage Therapist of Advanced Corrective Bodywork, has over 16 years’ experience, including 7 years’ as an instructor of kinesiology and sports massage to various Minneapolis massage schools. His thorough understanding of kinesiology, the study of movement, enables him to know what muscles are overworked and stressed. He knows how to promote flexibility, reduce fatigue, and improve endurance to help prevent injuries and prepare the athlete’s mind and body for optimal performance.
Often, during the course of a lifetime, a person’s joints can get small misalignments causing their muscles to tighten up even more. Good chiropractic care can help correct these misalignments. Although this is very helpful to the healing process, quality deep tissue work is essential to help the muscles regain their health.
