Sports massage on piriformis muscle
Sports Massage for Solihull, Birmingham, Lichfield and Tamworth runners should be an important part of the preparation for long distance running events such as the 2010 Virgin London Marathon, Great North Run, Birmingham Half Marathon or the shorter Lichfield 10k.
Massage helps to keep you running and eases the stiffness and aches and pains after a long training run.
Sports massage is not swedish body massage with more pressure applied, neither is it supposed to give the patient pain and agony. Firm pressure with deep tissue massage should be gradually increased until the patients pain threshold has been reached. Once the patient shows sign of tensing the target muscle, pressure should be eased off in order to manipulate the relaxed muscle.
Other techniques used may be muscle energy techniques or trigger point therapy for treating painful trigger points in muscles. Generally this is performed by experienced Sports Physiotherapists who also provide physiotherapy for runners
