Sports massage is a form of massage involving the manipulation of soft tissue to benefit a person engaged in regular physical activity. Soft tissue is connective tissue that has not hardened into bone and cartilage; it includes skin, muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia (a form of connective tissue that lines and ens heathes the other soft tissues). Sports massage is designed to assist in correcting problems and imbalances in soft tissue that are caused from repetitive and strenuous physical activity and trauma. The application of sports massage, prior to and after exercise, may enhance performance, aid recovery and prevent injury.
Sports Therapy entails a higher level of training that includes a wider set of skills and supporting knowledge. There is general agreement within the UK of some core areas which are essential to sports therapy although the emphasis will vary amongst training providers with some favouring soft tissue therapy and others leaning towards rehabilitation or emergency care. It is wideliy accepted that sports therapy includes:
- Anatomy and physiology
- Sports massage
- Ethics and Professionalism
- Advanced Manual Therapy Skills
- Injury assessment and treatment
- Gait analysis
- Rehabilitation from injury
- First Aid and advanced trauma care
- Taping for Sport
- Other areas sometimes included are Electrotherapy, Strength & Conditioning, and/or Sports Nutrition.
The general area a sports therapist will work in is to help individuals and teams progress from being able to perform normal daily physical functions to sporting and highly skilled activities.
