Massage does so much more than just help you unwind. Getting in for a massage session can help improve:
The truth is, it can be a little uncomfortable at times, but make sure you communicate your desired pressure with your therapist. There are different types of massage for different needs and comfort levels.
If you have an injury, you’ll probably benefit from having a sports massage, which is gentle and improves blood flow to your injured area. Sports massages can even help prevent injury and improve flexibility.
With a Swedish massage, you’ll be getting a gentle, relaxing massage that includes long strokes and circular motions to loosen up your muscles.
Deep tissue massage:
If you’re really tense, you may benefit from a deep tissue massage that involves deep strokes to reach even further down into muscle and connective tissue.
Trigger point massage:
This type of massage specifically targets tight fibers that stiffen your muscles when you have an injury, or overuse them. While trigger point massage might be a little uncomfortable, you’ll leave feeling loose and refreshed.
Your soreness will depend on the condition of your muscles before the massage and which type of massage you have. Your therapist will go over what to expect for each type of massage so there are no surprises. One of the best things you can do to prepare your body before a massage — and for recovery afterwards — is to drink plenty of water. Start hydrating the day before.
Continue drinking water after your massage to help your body stay hydrated after all that work was done on your muscles. Your therapist might also use ice or heat at the end of your session, to alleviate potential soreness.
Probably, yes. But it depends on your needs and your pain level. During your consultation and continuing evaluations, Dr. Payne can adjust your massage therapy schedule as needed. Some men and women get a massage as often as once or twice a week. You might only need a massage a couple times each month, especially if your injury continues to improve.
