Sports Massage

As an athlete you have unique needs, and you deserve personalized massage to fit those needs. At Main Line Massage it is our goal to help you meet those needs and goals as quickly and effectively as possible. We combine knowledge, experience and diversity to deliver high impact sports massages to athletes of every kind.

We target our massages towards:
  • Athlete's looking to improve their performance
  • Teams during local or national games and tournaments
  • Athlete's recovering from or avoiding injury

The benefits of sports massage include:
  • Increase in general flexibility, range of motion, and mobility
  • Improved performance and endurance 
  • Improving circulation, warming up the muscles, and preparing the body with pre-game massage
  • Injury prevention and/or treatment (common injuries discussed below)
  • Reducing post-event soreness and fatigue by reducing lactic acid and toxins

Common sports injuries that can be treated/prevented with massage are:
  • Rotator cuff/shoulder girdle pain, strains, tears, and adhesive capsulitis (frozen shoulder)
  • Tennis and golfer elbow
  • Sciatica
  • Knee pain/tears
  • Shin splits
  • Torn ankle ligaments
  • And many more

Treatment methods/planning for injuries, pain, or problem areas:
Approaching these types of injuries with massage can bring lasting results when a detailed, customized treatment plan is made and executed. Every athlete has different needs, so your therapist will assess your physical condition and make a plan for your personal treatment. Most treatment plans follow this pattern and often include these techniques:

  1. Focus on reducing inflammation through cryotherapy and lymphatic drainage
  2. Focus on reducing pain and restrictions using compression techniques, cross fiber friction, and passive/active stretching
  3. Focus on increasing range of motion and mobility using soft-tissue release techniques and PNF stretching
  4. Focus on improving strength, mobility, and endurance using soft-tissue release, isometric stretching, and boosting circulation
  5. Reassess the athlete for any further treatment planning. See them as-needed to maintain results and for any new issues

Main Line Massage will travel with you or your team locally, regionally, and nationally to deliver personalized sports massages that you need to keep you performing at your peak. Pricing varies based on the number of athletes, length of the event, travel times, and more.
