Massage can help maintain healthy muscles. Healthy muscles enable you to move more freely and help maintain strength.
Strong muscles assist your joints in movement and balance. Healthy muscles can also help prevent injuries from occurring. Massage performed on a regular basis removes waste products and prevents a build-up of tension in the muscles. Massage therapists at Manchester Physio provide a wide range of massage therapy services to maintain healthy muscles.
When can massage be used to maintain healthy muscles?
Massage used to maintain healthy muscles can be used:
Massage is an effective treatment to maintain healthy muscles post event. Massage helps maintain healthy muscles by reducing tightness, decreasing inflammation removing waste products. Muscles can feel sore and tight after exercise which can then lead to injury. It is important to regain healthy muscle fibres so that training can be continued and the risk of injury is reduced.
Massage can be used to maintain healthy muscles before a sporting event, such as, a football match or a 10k run. Regaining healthy muscles before a sporting event can help maximise performance and reduce the risk of injury. Massage helps to flush out waste products before exercise to prevent tightness and soreness from occurring.
Massage can also be used as an effective treatment to maintain healthy muscles during a training programme. Intense training can have an effect on muscle condition. Massage can help maintain fresh blood circulation to the muscles and flush out waste products.
Massage helps to maintain healthy muscles after injury. When injury occurs muscles surrounding an area can be affected. Muscles can tighten around an injury to provide protection. Massage can help treat the muscles by reducing tightness and repairing any damaged cells. Massage stimulates blood flow through tight muscles, increasing temperature and allowing them to relax. Massage also stretches and loosens the muscle fibres so there is an increase of movement.
How does massage help maintain healthy muscles?
Massage helps to maintain healthy muscles by increasing blood circulation, removing waste products and increasing tissue elasticity.
Massage helps to maintain healthy muscles by increasing blood circulation. Massage creates friction against the skin creating vasodilation and capiliarisation in the blood flow. Vasodilation and capiliarisation is the increase of size and number of blood cells. An increase of blood circulation also delivers an increase of oxygen and nutrients into the muscles. The delivery of oxygen and nutrients in the muscles increases more cellular exchange. Cellular exchange removes bad cells from the muscles and replaces them with healthier cells.
Massage can also help maintain healthy muscles by flushing out waste products. Waste products such as lactic acid, build up in the muscle during and after exercise. If the body does not flush out lactic acid it can build up in the muscle causing pain, stiffness and fatigue. Massage can be performed before and exercise to help prevent and treat build-up of lactic acid. Lymphatic drainage is a common massage technique which is use post exercise to stimulate the lymphatic system and flushes toxins away to keep the muscles healthy. The lymphatic system carries lymph flow which is made up of white blood cells through the body. White blood cells are part of the immune system which defends the body against infection and can work to prevent muscles becoming unhealthy.
Massage helps maintain healthy muscles by increasing tissue elasticity and maintaining muscle flexibility. Massage helps to increase elasticity my increasing temperature of the soft tissues and breaking down adhesions. Massage increases temperature of the muscle allowing muscle fibres to loosen. Massage helps to stretch out muscle fibres and increase flexibility. Increasing tissue elasticity is important to keeping muscles healthy and preventing tightness and restricted movement.
What are the benefits of receiving a massage to maintain healthy muscles?
Massage used to maintain healthy muscles have many benefits. The benefits of a massage to maintain healthy muscles include:
One benefit of receiving a massage for maintaining healthy muscles is reduced tension. Tension can build up in the muscles creating pain and stiffness. Massage is able to relieve tension, decrease pain and improve range of movement.
Massage helps to increase range of movement by increasing the temperature of soft tissues, increasing tissue elasticity and breaking down adhesions. The benefit of increased range of movement can help reduce pain and improve sporting performance.
Massage can help maintain healthy muscles by increasing healing to damaged muscle fibres. Massage helps speed up the healing process by increasing blood circulation. Increased blood circulation delivers oxygen and nutrients into the muscles. More oxygen and nutrients in the muscle fibres help repair and heal soft tissues.
Massage can also help to maintain healthy muscles by decreasing pain. Massage helps to reduce pain induced inflammation in the muscles and boosts the healing process. Regular massage is used throughout exercise to flush out toxins. This is important so that waste products and toxins do not build up and damage the muscles causing pain.
Massage to maintain muscles are used to prevent any damage or injury to occur. Massage reduces tension, decreases pain and improves range of movement. It is important to maintain healthy muscles around joints to prevent any serious injuries or allow a quicker recovery. Massage therapists at Manchester Physio provide a wide range of massage therapy services to maintain healthy muscles.
