The Benefits of Sports Massage at West Omaha Chiropractic & Sports Injury Clinic

Sports massages are beneficial for athletes and non-athletes. Our massage therapist recommends these massages for anyone who works out on a regular basis, runs or jogs and those who perform strenuous activities or play amateur or professional sports.

Reduce Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS) After Workouts in Omaha, NE

Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS) is characterized by increasing muscle pain after a strenuous workout. The pain and stiffness tend to increase from 24 to 72 hours after the workout. Getting a sports massage in Omaha, NE may help reduce the pain and the duration of DOMS so that you can get back to your favorite physical activities.

Improve Athletic Performance

Getting a sports massage before a big game or before a run or workout may help improve your performance. These targeted massages help improve circulation and warm up muscles, making them less prone to injury. Massage also helps to physically and mentally relax the individual and improve their mindset before the event.

Increase Range of Motion

Sports massages utilize moderate to firm pressure to relax the deep soft tissues, including muscles and tendons. They are targeted massages that are designed to address specific issues, like soreness, pain and loss of range of motion. Since these massages can be used to target the muscles and tendons, they can help improve the range of motion of the muscle and the affected joint, which results in better performance.

Reduces Post Workout Recovery Time

Sports massages help the muscles release lactic acid, which contributes to muscle soreness. Getting a sports massage and drinking water after your exercise session or sporting event can help flush you muscles of excess lactic acid and reduce your post workout recovery time.
