Boulder has athletes of every kind, from world-class professionals to weekend joggers. A sports/orthopedic massage is customized to the athlete’s sport of choice and often focuses on a particular troublesome area like the knee or shoulder.
Sports massage promotes flexibility, removes fatigue, improves endurance, helps prevent injuries and prepares athletes to compete at their absolute best. It enhances pre-event preparation, reduces recovery time between workouts, helps athletes achieve maximum performance during training and aids in recovery after an event.
Orthopedic massage involves therapeutic assessment, manipulation and movement of soft tissue to reduce pain and dysfunction. When a trauma or overuse injury comes about, the body develops compensations that may create new pains in adjacent areas of the injury. Orthopedic massage helps restore structural balance throughout the body and prevents and rehabilitates musculoskeletal dysfunctions.
