Covid-19 Update (18.07.2020)
This isn't the update that I thought I would be sending this week, in fact the complete opposite. Whilst massage therapists got the green light to return on Monday just gone, I had started on my return to work plan and was intending to open my doors from the 3rd August 2020. However, upon reading further guidance and some personal changes, it is with a very sad heart that I won't be reopening. I don't want to say that it will be forever, but as this year has shown us all - you really don't know what is round the corner.
I cannot thank you enough for all of your support over the years, it has always meant so much! I wish you all the very best.
Commonly Treated Injuries/Aches/Pains
Please see below for examples:
Ankle and foot pain
Such as the injury, 'Plantar Fasciitis'
which is a term given to a person who is experiencing pain on the sole of the foot. Plantar Fasciitis usually develops as a result of a tight calf and rigid foot.
Sports massage therapy can restore muscle flexibility and as a result increase joint mobility helping resolve the issue.
Many patients experience pain in their back, buttock and down their leg. This is often given the term, 'Sciatica'. This pain usually originates in the nerves of the lower back. The symptoms of which can be relieved through massage therapy and strengthening exercises of the core.
Neck and shoulder pain
For example, the injury known as 'Shoulder impingement syndrome'
is caused by the tendons of the rotator cuff muscles becoming impinged as they pass through a narrow bony space called the subacromial space. With repetitive pinching, the tendons become irritated and inflamed. Sports massage therapy can be used to help relax any tight muscles, such as the rotator cuff and upper back muscles.
Stress and tension headaches
Tension headaches typically develop because of tightness in the upper back and neck muscles. Sports massage therapy focuses on improving the mobility of the upper back which takes the tension off of the muscles.
Hip and knee pain
Most hip and knee problems are a result of poor alignment which results in misuse. It is very important to observe joint alignment and ensure all the muscles are working as they should.
