Massage has been practiced in one form or another for thousands of years and its beneficial effects are well established. There are now several specialized forms of massage within the whole spectrum, Sports and Remedial massage are two specialist areas that have a fundamentally different approach from all other styles of therapy.
Sports and Remedial Massage have evolved with time using techniques from various cultures and from other professions such as osteopathic methods or physiotherapy assessments and techniques.
Now at the Golf Injury Clinic we incorporate Pilates into our massage sessions not only for corrective exercise but also for stretching and mobilizing clients prior, during or after treatments. Sports and Remedial Massage is utilised as a preventative, corrective and rehabilitative therapy.
Most Golfers will experience tightness and tenderness in various muscles associated with golf which can be exacerbated by poor posture, poor golf technique, no warm-up or preparation and intense practice regimes.
Specific points of tenderness can be where muscles join the tendons or where the tendons join onto the bones. However, golfers also can experience spasm in bellies of the muscles themselves. To alleviate these problems, ‘Remedial and Sports' massage can be used.
Remedial massage can be defined as the utilisation of a range of physical modalities used in the assessment and treatment of muscular conditions that cause pain and influence the body's human movement.
Remedial Massage is a treatment that can be applied specifically to help prevent an injury or the recurrence of a past injury. In a sport like golf where the vast majority of injuries are caused by overuse or are chronic in nature and often a result of poor everyday posture and muscle imbalances resulting in poor technique, this is very important.
Remedial Massage is a hands on approach, working on many levels within the body. It is the unique way in which it combines the various techniques of massage to suit the individual golfer which makes it such a versatile and effective treatment method.
At the Melbourne Golf Injury Clinic we measure our success not by how well the athlete recovers from an injury but how few injuries occur.
From a golfer's point of view our style of Remedial or Sports massage can correct an injury if necessary, or through postural re-training, assist in improving one's game no matter what level or standard he/she plays at.
