What is a sports massage?

A sports massage – also known as a Swedish massage – is a deep tissue massage combined with soft tissue manipulation. It works deep into the muscles to promote and support healthy muscle growth, improve mobility, ease tension and also reduce the risk of injury.

Here, we go into sports massage therapy in more detail. But, if you’re suffering, please contact us for a free consultation today.

What can a sports massage be used for?

A sports massage is a specific massage technique all over the body that helps muscles repair and heal from discomfort and tension. Although it’s commonly used to help athletes and sportspeople to boost their recovery time, it’s also an effective treatment for those suffering with pain caused by everyday life.

Unlike a traditional massage, which is used for relaxation, this type of massage can be used to:

  • Reduce pains and strains
  • Decrease blood pressure
  • Aid blood flow
  • Boost sporting performance
  • Improve sleep 
  • Reduce anxiety, stress and tension

Many symptoms can be treated via this method, however, it may that you need a specific course of alternative treatment. Your consultant will be able to advise you in this case.

Do I need a sports massage?

Many people think that sports massages are only for athletes. However, the truth is, whether you play any kind of sport or exercise regularly, then a sports massage can be an effective treatment for aches and pains. Even those who don’t do any physical activity often see the benefits of a sports massage and find that it relieves their symptoms.

What does a sports massage treatment include?

you seeking treatment. They will determine the root cause of your pain – whether that’s a sports injury or general tension in the muscles – before prescribing the best course of action.

The number of treatments will depend on the cause of your pain. Not to mention how well your body responds to the massage. After a few sessions, it may be that you need more specialised treatment

How does Chiropractic help?

If you’re suffering with aches and pains, you’ll be pleased to know that there is a solution. Chiropractor treatment varies from patient to patient, but our team will make you feel at ease and explain exactly what we will do before any treatment to make sure you are comfortable and understand.

A Chiropractor can also aid your recovery by combining other treatments such as exercise rehabilitation and nutritional education.

Before your first visit, our receptionist will confirm your appointment time 24 hours beforehand and will make sure you have directions and a place to park. When you arrive, we will ask you to fill out a health history form and then you will see Dr Jeremy for a consultation. The consultation will involve a medical history, physical examination, posture assessment and X-rays if clinically necessary.

Once we have completed your initial consultation it will take 2 hours to process the results and propose a treatment plan.  The chiropractic assistant will invite you back at a time that is suitable for you either later on in the day or week. At the second visit Dr Jeremy will go over your results, show you your x-rays (if taken) and outline the plan to help achieve your goals.

The treatments don’t hurt, however following the adjustment there maybe some muscles and ligaments that will need to adapt due to your new posture. This can cause some stiffness in certain areas, this is normal and we advise you to pop an ice pack on the area for 10 minutes after your adjustment and drink plenty of water.

The cracking or popping noise when you receive an adjustment is gas being released from the joints. This is normal.

The first consultation costs £55, this is a full spinal assessment which involves muscle and nerve testing, posture analysis, orthopaedic testing and X-rays (£60)  if clinically necessary.

An adjustment is £55 if you pay as you go. However, we do have discount options available depending on what works best for you.

Monday – Friday 8am-8pm, Saturday and Sunday – closed

Everybody is different and has different responses. We start very easy and explain everything that we will do on the first adjustment clearly before we perform it. Some people may feel looser more flexible afterwards, some people nothing after the first one and others may feel stiffer in the areas we have worked on. Each response is normal when we move the body around, it’s important to remember if the problem has been there for a while it will take more than one adjustment to respond.

This depends on the chronicity of the condition – whether it has been weeks, months or years will play a big part. The severity of the condition is also an important factor that your Chiropractor will be able to advise on. In the report the Chiropractor will outline the problem and tell you based off the examination how long it should typically take to feel better.

We understand that everyone is busy and has a life outside of West Chiropractic, but we ask you to please let us know as soon as possible if you can’t make an appointment and we will do our best to re-schedule this for you. We are very flexible and will always try to keep you on schedule.
