Young Man Getting Physiotherapy At Clinic

I hurt my shoulder when I slipped on the ice just before Christmas 2022. I expected it would get better quickly, but it didn't - it was very painful to raise my arm beyond the horizontal. Important travel plans took me out of the country just after New Year so it was mid-February before I could seek professional help. I was delighted to be able to see Brian at Releaf Physio (Benton): he examined my shoulder very thoroughly and diagnosed a partial tear of the tendon of the supraspinatus muscle (he explained this to me with some excellent computerised drawings). Over the last 4 months he's seen me 4 more times and given me a series of graded strengthening exercises to do at home, explaining them carefully and providing an app to help guide me through them. On each visit he also massaged my shoulder to help free up its movement. He's always been very encouraging, which has helped me to carry on putting in the effort with the exercises at home. So it's taken a while but normal strength has now returned to my shoulder and I can even reach up to trim my long, high garden hedge with manual shears with hardly any discomfort. Because it's so much better I'm not planning any more appointments but Brian is happy to see me again if necessary. I recommend him strongly, he clearly knows his job very well indeed and has an excellent "bedside manner" to go along with it.

Saw Brian around October 2021 for chronic lower back pain relating to crossfit and tennis. Had back pain for about 4 years + Sleeping was painful, waking up in the morning I could barely bend over to out trousers on without sitting on the edge of the bed for about 2 mins. I am 35 and pretty fit so having all this was annoying and making me not want to do any exercise. Now after monthly physio sessions, a progressive physiotherapy plan that was done almost every single day, I am now pain free, doing crossfit again and playing tennis without much concern. Overall treatment was for 5 months, and i am now just maintaining it to prevent injury. Can’t recommend this guy enough!

I went to see Robert yesterday as I have been suffering with lower back pain for weeks now and it’s the best thing I’ve done. Robert was excellent from start to finish. Immensely knowledgeable and a credit to Releaf Physio. I will be a very regular customer and I’d recommend anyone to Robert.

Had my initial assessment on Saturday for my shoulder. Brian was friendly and very knowledgeable. My shoulder felt better and I was sent an email with videos of the exercises I need to do at home plus the reassurance I can message him at any time. Definitely going to go back for a review. Brilliant service thank you

Benefits of Getting Regular Sports Massage Therapy

Regular sports massage therapy offers a multitude of advantages for athletes and all active individuals. Here are some major benefits of incorporating it into your training regimen:

Better Performance

Regular sports massages optimise your physical performance and reduce muscle tension, promoting flexibility and improving blood circulation. This results in increased muscle strength, endurance, and overall athletic prowess.

Faster Recovery

By accelerating the recovery process, sports massage helps alleviate muscle soreness and minimise downtime between training sessions. It also aids in the removal of metabolic waste, reduces inflammation, and promotes the healing of micro-tears, allowing you to bounce back quicker and get back in a short time.

Injury Prevention

Sports massage plays a crucial role in injury prevention by identifying and addressing muscular imbalances and areas of tension. It helps release fascial restrictions, enhances joint mobility, and promotes proper movement patterns, reducing the risk of injuries caused by overuse or poor biomechanics.

Improved Flexibility and Range of Motion

Regular massage will enhance muscle flexibility and increase your range of motion. By targeting and releasing tight muscles, fascia, and connective tissues, you can perform optimally and with reduced strain.

Improved General Wellness

Beyond the physical benefits, sports massage provides a psychological and emotional respite. It promotes relaxation, reduces stress hormones, and stimulates the release of endorphins, creating a sense of well-being and rejuvenation. This holistic approach fosters a positive mindset and boosts overall performance. Incorporating regular sports massage therapy into your training routine is a wise investment in your physical and mental well-being. Contact us to book your massage session today!

When is the Best Time to Schedule Your Sports Massage Therapy?

Determining the optimal timing for a sports massage therapy session is essential to enjoying more of its benefits. Consider the following factors to find the best time to schedule your sports massage:

  • Pre-Event Massage: If you have an upcoming competition, scheduling a sports massage 2-3 days before the event can help prime your body for optimal performance. 

  • Post-Event Massage: After a strenuous competition or intense training session, booking a sports massage within 24-48 hours can promote your recovery process, support the removal of metabolic waste, relieve stiffness and promote muscle repair.

  • Maintenance and Injury Prevention: You may also opt for regular maintenance sessions, such as weekly or bi-weekly sports massages, to help prevent injuries. These sessions can be scheduled during your off-season or during periods of reduced training intensity.

  • Training Cycles: During periods of intense training or high-volume workouts, scheduling sports massages at regular intervals, such as every 2-4 weeks, can help you manage muscle fatigue and prevent overuse injuries.

  • Individual Needs and Recovery: Your body can tell you when you need it. Listen to your body and pay attention to its signals. If you feel persistent muscle tightness, increased fatigue, or a decline in performance, it may be a sign.

Whatever your preference, you are guaranteed to receive the best sports massage from Releaf Physio. Do you have any questions? Feel free to contact us!
