Sports Massage

At The Back Practice our team of skilled Sports Massage Therapists are experienced in the effective delivery of sports massage to both aid your recovery and to enhance your performance. Sports Massage Therapy is one of the most effective therapies for releasing muscle tension and restoring balance to the musculoskeletal system.
Regular SMT helps athletes prevent injuries, which might otherwise be caused by continual overuse. A constant build-up of tension in the muscles from regular activity may lead to stress on the joints, ligaments, tendons, as well as the muscles themselves. Muscular imbalances often go undiagnosed until they are serious enough to cause discomfort or encumber performance.
At The Back Practice our Sports Massage Therapists and Chartered Physiotherapists will detect variations in the soft tissues and suitably apply the correct techniques to restore muscular balance, helping to prevent injury and to optimise performance.

  1. All chronic muscular aches & pains
  2. Sports injuries, sprains and strains
  3. Back ache

  5. Sore neck & shoulders
  6. Headaches
