Preventing Running Injuries: Adding Sports Massage

Liz Garrison, LMT Nov 3, 2014

If you are a runner and you have ever been injured, there is something you should consider--getting a regular sports massage.

Massage improves flexibility and reduces risk of injury while running.  Constant running shortens muscles such as hamstrings and leads to a loss of range of motion (ROM) and decreased circulation to compressed muscle tissues.

Regular massage gets more oxygen to your muscles by improving circulation and helping your system remove excess toxins from the tissue, allowing you to perform better.  The massage also keeps muscles from getting too tight and this prevents new injuries.  Regular massage can even help you recover faster from a run or race.

If you are in the Dallas area, your local Elements Massage at West Plano can help.  They offer an introductory massage starting at $49 to get you started and a monthly Wellness Program starting at $59 to keep you going.
