Massage Therapy and the CrossFit Athlete
When was the last time you scheduled a massage? Maybe it was last week…a month… or maybe even a few months…hmm… maybe it was actually last year for a special occasion spa day, or maybe you’ve never had a professional massage before. Foam rolling, steel smashing, voodoo floss bands, using a lacrosse ball, stretching, hot/cold therapy, range of motion exercises are all great options for recovery and sometimes do the trick… but ultimately it’s a massage that will help those sore muscles recover.
As CrossFit athletes we demand a lot from our bodies, on top of the overuse dysfunctions from everyday life, for example hunching over on the computer, “text neck” (head tilted down with shoulders rounded forward), standing or sitting for long periods of time, carrying babies on your hip, and driving to name a few. Getting a regular massage once a month (recommended for everyone as maintenance) or more (every 1-2 weeks if you are experiencing pain or injury), can help with reduce muscle soreness and risk of injury, while increasing range of motion, so ultimately you can perform better without those aches and pains.
