Just a few of the sports injuries we treat with clinical massage therapy:
Massage therapy applied correctly can treat knee problems such as patellar tendonosis and tracking issues, ACL and MCL pain. Be patient, tendons and ligaments take time to repair and you may be asked to lay off offending activities until symptoms have subsided. The IT band may cause lateral knee pain and is also treatable with massage therapy.
Lateral ankle sprains are the most common type of ankle sprains because it is easier, anatomically speaking, to roll your ankle outward than in. Swelling is common depending on severity. Massage therapy can be helpful after PRICE (protection, rest, ice, compression, elevation) to reduce muscle spasm in the lower leg and help scar tissue align properly.
Commonly known as Tennis Elbow, lateral epicondylitis can be painful and limit you from activities requiring grip strength or wrist flexion. It is an over use injury and massage therapy can help to heal the tendons involved. Many causes are misdiagnosed as inflammatory when instead it is actually tendonosis, a break down of collagen.
The hamstrings are strong muscles but are vulnerable to strains. Once a hamstring strain has occurred, you are prone to re-injury. Massage can reduce tightness in the muscles and help functional scar tissue develop. Stretching with massage can help to reduce the chance of future injury.

“Brianna is simply the best massage therapist that I know! I love to run and recently completed the St George Marathon in 3:47:23. This was my first marathon and there were many sore days and minor injuries along the way. I do not think I would have been able to have done as well as I did without Brianna’s help. She knows exactly how to work out the sore spots without completely beating you up in the process. She truly cares about her clients and enjoys helping people.”
