Sports Massage Therapy
A necessity for any athlete
Contrary to popular belief, golf is very physically demanding. An effective golf swing requires strength, stability, explosive power, flexibility and athletic ability to perform a movement that produces some of the fastest club head and ball speeds of any sport.
The effect of these repeated large forces on the body can lead to many different types of injuries, which are often specific to certain areas and sides of the body in golfers, depending on their lead side. From lower back pain, tennis elbow to rotator cuff/shoulder injuries, sports massage therapy helps to relieve pain and improve overall performance.
By realigning and stretching the muscles of the back, shoulders, forearms, hamstrings, hip flexors and wrists, sports massage therapy can help improve a player’s range of motion. With greater flexibility, you will be able to swing the club as you always wanted to...and play pain free!
