Sports Massage Mount Pleasant

Myofascial massage is a technique used to treat injuries and discomfort, reducing pain and increasing range of motion. Myofascial massage differs from other types of massage in that it targets the fascia - the membrane surrounding muscles - rather than the muscle itself. Since fascia completely encases every muscle in the body, imbalances in the fascia can have serious effects on your range of motion and comfort level. While other forms of massage can overlook the fascia, myofascial massage focuses specifically on releasing tension in this important membrane.

This Sports Massage in Mount Pleasant is offered by Nancy Montgomery.

Sports Massage / Myofascial Adhesions (AKA trigger points)

Ever wonder what the “knot” or “crunchy” is on your shoulder? Plus, it’s the size of a quarter or golf ball!

When a muscle becomes injured or overused, the fascia between the skin and muscle forms adhesions or trigger points, preventing the muscle from working well.

Fascia is a sheet of connective tissue made of collagen, which stabilizes the muscle and other internal structures. Fascia is everywhere in the body, including organs, muscles, nerves, and blood vessels, and the fascia layer lies between the skin and muscle.

A healthy muscle slides and moves without restrictions, but when a muscle is injured or overused, fibroblasts form in your collagen. The fascia becomes extra dense and creates fascia adhesions. The overproduction of fascia adhesions can affect your mobility in muscles and joints.

Myofascial is fascia that covers the muscles. Myofascial release breaks up the fibrosis that occurs in the fascia, eliminates pain, and restores motion to the tissue. Myofascial release is a soft tissue therapy for treating skeletal muscles with compression, tension, and movement.

Myofascial release is important in sports massage because the trigger points compromise the tissue structure, causing strain on the tissues that must compensate for its weakness. You experience less range of motion in the joints, premature fatigue, chronic pain and injury, and less efficient motor skill performance. This isn’t good for an athlete!

I cannot stress the importance of maintenance sports massage. If you’re an athlete, a sports massage 2-3 times a month helps break down adhesions, improves flexibility and range of motion, prevents injuries, and promotes injury recovery.

Testimonials

  • I have been seeing Nancy recently for various sports related aches, and couldn’t be more pleased with the quality of her strong massages.

    She is very professional, yet warm and caring. Her massages are therapeutic and relaxing, and I like that she listens to my concerns and goes the extra mile to work on my trouble spots. She also works in these wonderful stretches that target those hard to reach areas.

    As someone who’s familiar receiving good sports massages, I highly recommend Nancy.

    My experience has been positive and I leave her office feeling like a new person.

    If you are looking for a quality, conscientious therapist, give Nancy a call!
