Increased range of movement

Massage therapy is a form of treatment that can enable an increase in range of movement by improving flexibility at the joints. By manually working on the muscles, ligaments, connective tissues and joints, a regular massage can help to improve and gain a greater range of movement but also making movements more fluid and decrease the chances of injury.

Increasing range of movement is an important factor that a have a significant impact on performance and everyday living.



Who can it help?



By increasing the range of movement that an individual has can have major effects on other parts of their life especially if they are a keen participant in a sporting activity. The more sedentary people are the less fluidity movements become and can actually lead to a great loss in range of movement. Incorporating a regular massage into a fitness regime to increase range of movement can have other benefits as a by-product.







Individuals that may benefit from massage to increase range of movement:-
  • Elite athletes
  • Recreational athletes
  • Individuals in sedentary jobs
  • Rehabilitation from injury
  • Preventing injury

Benefits of increasing range of movement



With all massages there will be an increase in circulation which increases the supply of nutrients to the muscles, this can aid in reducing delayed onset muscle soreness and also improve performance. As people age the length of muscles becomes shorter and tighter which can restrict range of movement and quality of life leading to other complications. Passively stretching the tissues by massage can decrease the chances of injury and increase overall muscle balance.







Benefits of massage for range of movement:-
  • Increase circulation
  • Increase nutrients
  • Prevent injury
  • Reduce pain
  • Reduces stress on joints
The muscles that have become tight over a period of time would benefit from massage as it stretches out the muscles which also release endorphins which improve the mood of individuals. It can also help to realign chronically tight muscles causing postural problems. For instance a massage concentrating on the hip flexors, lower back muscles and quadriceps will help to reduce tightness and realign bad posture and reduce pain whilst increasing range of movement at the same time.








Summary
