Our Soccer Sports Massage Therapy is designed keeping the special needs of a soccer player in mind. Soccer is an intense sport and places stress on the entire cardiovascular and musculoskeletal system.The muscles of the lower body work the hardest and are used for running, dribbling, moving side-to-side, jumping, and kicking the ball. The trunk, core and arms are used to maneuver and change positions quickly, helping move the body forward, sideways, or backwards. The cardiovascular system is working hard to keep oxygen and nutrition flowing to all organs and muscles, both while sprinting and endurance running. Great stamina and total-body strength is needed to succeed in the game of soccer, no matter which position you play.
Injuries to the thighs and calves are the most common soccer-related injuries, but other body parts are affected as well. Our Therapeutic Sports Massage Therapy can help rehabilitate soccer-related injuries.
