Sports Injuries

Massage Techniques Three main categories of massage used in sports are:- • Effleurage – It is used at the start of the massage in which the whole palm of the hand and fingers are used with changing pressure according to purpose and stage of the massage. • Petrissage – It is used on deeper tissues for mobilizing fluids, stretching muscle fibers, and encouraging relaxation. • Friction – It is used for more painful movements aimed at breaking down lesions, separating muscle fibers, and even breaking down recent scar tissue. 

Different massage has different aims. In all types of massage, the therapist has definite purposes in mind. In Sports massage, athlete’s individual needs are focused. With the growing competition and increased participation in sports, the sports massage has gained popularity because of its recovery property and performance enhancement.
