Good conditioning, massage can keep you healthy on the course or court, says Massage Envy
Most tennis and golf-related injuries occur because players don’t adequately train and then overdo it on the course or court.
Golfers tend to swing too vigorously, spraining or straining the muscles in their backs and arms. They’re also prone to injuries from lifting and lugging overloaded golf bags.
Gripping the racquet too tightly is to blame for many tennis injuries to the elbow and arm. Rotator cuff damage can result from aggressive swinging. Hamstrings, knees and feet also take a beating on the court.
To prevent sports-related injuries, prepare for the demands of your sport. If you can’t walk a mile or two without anything hurting, you shouldn’t think about any activity until you can.
If you’re plagued by recurring pain or injury, consult a doctor and a golf or tennis pro. A professional instructor can pinpoint seemingly minor errors in your grip or swing that can cause major damage to your muscles and tendons.
Even if you concentrate on conditioning, sometimes injuries do happen. Doctors often recommend applying ice to any strain or sprain during the first 72 hours, then switching to a moist heating pad. Nonprescription medicine can help control pain. And a massage will promote healing.
“Massage is great in helping to bring blood and nutrients to the affected area to repair the soft tissue,” said CG Funk, Vice President of Industry Relations for Massage Envy, the leading provider of massage therapy in the U.S. “Massage also can help break up scar tissue and keep the muscles supple so less scar tissue develops in the first place.”
Even when there’s no injury, massage also helps athletes of all levels improve their flexibility and muscle suppleness. The kneading action of a massage disperses the accumulation of lactic acid, which causes fatigued, sore muscles.
When you book your Massage Envy massage, request a therapist experienced in sports massage, and ask that special attention be paid to any injured areas. A massage therapist can also stretch the muscles in trouble areas, promoting increased flexibility when the body is warm and more elastic.
