What is Post-Event Sports Massage ?
Updated: May 14, 2021
Post-Event Sports Massage takes place after you have performed your sport and is aimed at helping you convalesce and recover from your sporting activity.
Massage techniques differ from those used in Pre-event and include, compression and kneading combined with specific therapeutic stretches to help regain joint mobility and flexibility.
Primarily Post-Event Sports Massage helps speed up your recovery process from muscle soreness, stiffness and general muscles strains as well as aid the removal of toxins like lactic acid.
One of the main advantages to this type of massage is to minimise the onset of (DOMS) Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness.
This treatment is ideally performed immediately after the event or as soon as possible, so if you are a keen distance runner seek out a good Sports Massage Therapist to avoid injury.
