Nothing beats the exhilarating feeling that comes with playing sports. Sometimes, however, the rush it gives may keep athletes from recognizing injury, or even if they do, they keep playing so as not to pass up a chance for victory. Yes, a determined mindset may be the main ingredient for victory but it’s also important to note that the body has its limits too. One of the top sports-related injuries is muscular strain resulting from overuse. According to the Pacific College of Medicine, heavily-used muscles tend to lose their ability to relax. The tightening and loss of flexibility is accompanied by soreness and muscle tears that eventually lead to stress fractures, a case when the muscle becomes overly fatigued and is no longer able to tolerate shock. The tight muscles also restrict blood flow, causing pain. A Vancouver RMT recommends a regular sports massage as an excellent way for athletes to fight the debilitating effects of strenuous exercises after a tough training session.
