Orthopedic sports massage is geared towards the elite athlete and uses a combination of massage and bodywork techniques – including both JFB-MFR and traditional sports and neuromuscular therapies. Orthopedic sport massage is most commonly used in cases of acute injuries to promote faster healing.
A unique multidisciplinary approach will be utilized to restore structural balance throughout your body which will allow us to focus on the prevention and rehabilitation of your musculoskeletal dysfunctions, chronic pain, and sports injuries. This involves functional assessment, structural myofascial release, neuromuscular therapy, scar tissue mobilization techniques, PNF stretching, and neuromuscular re-educations to reduce or eliminate pain and dysfunctions.
Unlike other traditional forms of massage therapy, the emphasis of this is placed on understanding the injury as well as what it will take to heal that injury. While this style of bodywork is generally used to help heal soft-tissue injuries, many athletes and dancers receive orthopedic sports massage regularly to enhance their performances, pre and post events.
