We have an experienced team of Chichester based Sports Massage therapists at The Boxgrove clinic who are experienced in treating pain and soft tissue injuries.
Sports Massage is a manual therapy which uses a variety of soft tissue techniques. Our bodies are made up of 70% soft tissue which includes muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia. Our therapists are Soft Tissue specialists who are experienced in understanding the anatomy of soft tissue and why they are not working effectively. They use this understanding to ‘iron out’ unhappy soft tissue and return it to its natural, relaxed state.
Soft tissue can cause pain and restricted movement for a number of reasons: muscles can become too tight (exercise or stress); soft tissue can be injured (strain or sprain); muscles can ‘lock down’ when under threat (e.g. whiplash). Our muscle memory helps us go about our day without having to think eg walking. However we also create negative muscle memory from repeated actions such as typing at a desk or texting. These need to be re-corrected back to positive muscle memory.
Our experienced Sports Massage therapists in Chichester will work with you to understand what is causing your pain or restriction, help you to understand what actions might be causing the problem and ultimately provide pain relief & improvement with treatment. Once we have worked your muscles and relieved the pain patterns we’ll help you to understand little actions you can do in daily life to minimise the effects of our lifestyles on our bodies. This gives you the opportunity to help yourself reduce pain.
