Sports Massage

Sports massage is the term applied to the discipline of using massage for the specific benefit of all sports and exercise participants. It is the vigorous manipulation of the soft tissues in the body for the athlete or active individual.

All therapists here at The Physio Lounge are qualified physiotherapists and have experience working in sport at the highest level and are more than capable of meeting your requirements. Sports massage is often used in conjunction with Sports Rehabilitation and Sports Screening to optimise the effect.

    BENEFITS OF SPORTS MASSAGE

    A

    WHEN WOULD SPORTS MASSAGE HELP?

    A
    Pre-event – assists in event preparation, ensuring muscles and soft tissue are supple and ready for activity.
    A
    Post-event – accelerates recovery and ensures on-going training is not disrupted.
    A
    Maintenance – assists in managing longer-term issues, and addressing on-going postural or repetitive strain issues.

    What the treatment involves

    During the first session your therapist will ask some brief health related questions to ensure that there are no reasons why a sports massage cannot be performed. Depending on the area that you require treating you may need to remove relevant clothing.

    What should I wear? 

    Long cycling shorts and tracksuit bottoms restrict access to your thighs and hips and are not suitable for treatment sessions.

    Ladies: Please bring something suitable for us to access the area that you require treatment for, this could simply be a sports bra/vest and shorts. However, we also use towels regularly during sports massage sessions.

    Gents: Briefs, tight fitting boxers or shorts are fine. Loose fitting running shorts are ideal.

    Hydration

    Drink plenty of water before your session and after your session, a good guide would be 500ml before and 1L in the hours after your session. Try to avoid any substances that may dehydrate you before and after your massage, such as caffeine and alcohol.

    What type of oil/wax is used?

    We use a simple hypoallergenic massage lotion called Chemodol. Allergic reactions to this products is rare but if you have any concerns, please raise these with your therapist who will be happy to offer an alternative.

    How can I maintain the benefits of massage in between sessions? 

    Our therapists will complete your session by advising you on general and specific ways to maintain the benefits of your massage.  This may include foam roller/trigger point ball use, myofascial release techniques, stretching, postural cues and workstation modification.  Additionally, make sure you drink lots of water, minimise long periods of sitting and use appropriate warm-up and cool-down strategies.

    Persistent symptoms should not be ignored and may be related to other joint or stability issues. However your physiotherapist will be able to identify persistent issues and may recommend a physiotherapy assessment, if appropriate, to treat the cause of your issue at the root.

    I genuinely couldn’t recommend these guys enough. I ruptured my Achilles’ tendon in January this year, and I knew I needed to find a physio with a professional sports background to get me back to the level I needed to be at. They helped me throughout lockdown whenever possible, and was always on hand with any help or advice I needed. Once I became more mobile and had reached the level where I could really start pushing hard again, I was introduced to Tom. This couldn’t have come at a better time, as I was at a level where I was ready to bridge that gap between feeling strong again, but not quite ready for the explosive aspect of my job. Tom recognised straight away what needed to be addressed, and he broke down all the big movements with me over the next few weeks. He took me from not having the confidence in my Achilles to single leg hop, to sprinting close to 100% in the space of 3 weeks. His knowledge is second to none and I’m so grateful to him and the rest of the guys at the physio lounge for getting me back to where I needed to be. Aside from that, all the staff are great people, friendly, and only have you’re best interests at heart.

    Developed severe lower back pain through working from home during the Covid-19 pandemic. Phsyio Lounge carried out ergonomic desk assessment (with Craig) and had 4 video physiotherapy sessions with Sam which has worked wonders. Improved with every session, almost pain free, but left fully understanding what i need to do to make the final step be be totally pain free. Initially sceptical about video sessions but they did work effectively. Sam was very professional, fully explained everything in detail throughout the course of treatment. Well impressed with set up. Would definitely recommend. Thank you Sam, thank you Physio Lounge. P.S. The exercises have even improved my golf swing!! Bonus!

    I would like to thank The Physio Lounge for the recent help i received. I had hurt my lower back and was in extreme pain. I thought due to the covid 19 restrictions i would have to suffer. However i contacted the Physio Lounge and a video call was set up . Craig was extremely sympathetic, knowledgeable and professional. He soon set me up with exercises and regular updates. I highly recommend The Physio Lounge .

    Had a virtual assessment with Craig due to a running injury during lockdown. I was so pleased with the virtual appointment and didn’t expect to receive such a fabulous service and excellent advice on a video appointment. Thank you Craig you’ve helped me to continue with my running during lockdown. An excellent service provided even in these difficult times.

    I have been attending The Physio Lounge since September 2019 twice a week after a serious motorcycle accident with very complex injuries. I have nothing but admiration for Craig and his colleagues dealing and treating me. They have shown me total respect, and without doubt have made my recovery better and quicker than I could of ever expected. I am very fortunate that my case manager engaged The Physio Lounge to help and manage the physio treatment I needed. I can not sing loud enough the praises for Craig and his staff in helping me.

    Worked with Craig from the Physio Lounge. He has helped me massively with lower back pain due to over rotation of my spine. He has helped to treat my current symptoms with acupuncture and has also created a bespoke programme for me to follow which has helped to solve the issue on a long term basis. I would highly recommend him and the Physio Lounge!

    I can honestly say that in all my time of training in a gym, bodybuilding and training 100's of clients I have never come across a Physio who is this knowledgeable as Craig. His thirst for learning is evident! He regularly ensures he is up to date with the latest science led studies to ensure he is helping his clients the best way. On top of that he is highly professional and very comfortable to be around. He puts you at ease and listens and asks all the right questions to diagnose you. He is worth traveling to I will never go anywhere else! Thank you Craig, you have changed my life!

    I have been treated by Craig at the Physiolounge several times over the last few years for various different running injuries. I’m always impressed by his knowledge, dedication and skill. He even managed In the last few weeks to remotely diagnose and cure a knee problem I had! I would highly recommend Physiolounge.

    Multiple Rugby Injuries I’ve had many injuries over the past few years including shoulder, hamstring and ankle to name a few. I’ve used Physio Lounge consistently and they’ve done a tremendous job.

    Following a bad skiing injury to my shoulder and fearing the worst, I have been nothing other than thoroughly impressed with the PhysioLounge. I was thankfully able to see Craig for a 'live' consultation pre-lockdown, and then have had 4 online physio sessions which have worked perfectly and through which he has enabled me to build up strength in the shoulder. Not only that, but he has also attended to weaknesses in posture and physique that will hopefully benefit me in future triathlons (looking ahead in faith!)
