Groin Strain in Runners – Remedial massage as a treatment

Try Remedial Massage Treatment for your Groin Injury

We are into the new year and we all have renewed our determination to get lean and fit again, but what if your groin strain is preventing you from running? There are more than one type of groin strain in runners and it is important to rest and get some help if you are to prevent your groin strain becoming a chronic injury.

Groin strains often arise from a sudden increase in training or perhaps overtraining after a bit of a lay off, so be aware that if you have had a niggling groin you will be more vulnerable after the christmas break.

Remedial massage treatment may well be helpful, we can look at your posture and any underlying weak spots and work on addressing those at my clinics for massage in Ely and hopefully you will be back clocking up PB’s in no time. Still time to address a fresh groin strain to get you back running in the frostbite league.

Remedial Massage for Paralysis

Considering Remedial Massage in cases of Paralysis

Paralysis can arrive for very many reasons, as the result of a stroke, Cerebal Palsy from birth damage as a result of Guillaume Barre Syndrome from an accident the causes are myriad and all very different. Many conditions where there is partial paralysis can lead to overtightened muscles and their partner muscles become flaccid and weak.

Massage can stimulate blood flow to the muscles, specialised techniques can work directly on the nerve reflex to fool the muscles into releasing and this may help to ease the pain and spasm which can be associated with hypertonic muscles.

Massage may sometimes be uncomfortable if there is partial sensation as it can lead to a pins and needles sensation, but generally the benefits of massage should outweigh the discomfort.Regularly stimulating non responsive or spasming muscles with massage may help to reduce the pain and discomfort which is often felt and stretching them will help to prevent contractures forming.
