Sports and remedial massage is an important part of patient care at West London Physiotherapy. For over a decade we have been helping patients overcome a range of conditions; from short term muscle spasm or tightness, through to longer term postural or movement issues.
Muscle soreness or tightness is common and be caused by a range of things including stress, posture, sport or exercise, or after surgery. When muscles becomes overactive they can cause pain, fatigue, headaches, and restricted movement.
One of the most effective ways to relieve muscle tightness is to use sports or remedial massage. Massage works both physically and mentally in helping relax tight or overactive muscles.
