Get more out of your work outs with a sports massage

October 17, 2017

Take your workout to the next level with a sports massage! It doesn’t matter if you implement HIIT (High intensity interval training), jog, swim, lift weights or row a sports massage will help improve your activity as it involves getting deep into the tissue.  This is called myofascial release.  Our bodies get tight and this can cause restrictions in our daily workouts. Myofascial release works by loosening up this connective tissue.  When this happens it improves our ability to move and hence improves the quality of your workout. A restricted muscle such as a tight hamstring can really have a negative impact on your workout and can even lead to an injury.  Sports massage can help alleviate those issues and keep you running at your best.

Sports massage also has other added benefits such as boosting circulation and a massage directly after working out can also help in reducing the dreaded DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness). This works by the body rushing blood to repair any micro tears within the muscle fiber that your workout just destroyed! Pretty neat!

Choosing the Best Chiropractor in Calgary

Finding a chiropractor

If you suffer from lower back pain, chronic headaches, elbow pain, etc, the last thing you need is to feel stressed out trying to find a good chiropractor in your area. There will often be many chiropractors to choose from and it can become very overwhelming trying to find and select a chiropractor to treat your condition.

Here are a few of our recommendations to remove this stress (Obviously we would love to welcome you as a client but if you are not based in the Calgary, Alberta area then hopefully this article can still help you find someone in your local area that can help).

  1.  Search for Chiropractors on Google and visit their website.  This can be great source of information and will often have staff bios that include qualifications, conditions they treat, years in business and more. It can allow you to get a feeling if they take their business seriously.
  2. After completing 1 you can also look at reviews on their google my business listing.  This will give you an idea of what others have thought of their treatment.
  3. Ask family, friends and co-workers.  Often it will be the case that the people you know will have likely used a chiropractor in the past.  Ask them for recommendations.
  4. Ask your physician if they can recommend a trustworthy and reliable chiropractor in your area.

Selecting a chiropractor

After you have come up with one or more chiropractors do not be afraid to call and discuss your treatment options. Often you will be able to get a feeling if they will be suitable for you from just a simple phone conversation. Some chiropractors may offer phone consultations or an in office consultation.
