What to expect from you Sports Massage appointment?
For your initial appointment, the therapist will go through a clinical assessment which will involve answering questions about your lifestyle (occupation and sport/exercise), general health and previous medical history. The therapist will then ask about your reason for visiting the clinic and make notes on your current medical/injury history. They will then assess this area which may involve testing the movement of the joint and palpating the specific area required to treat. The therapist will communicate their plan for the session prior to commencing and will communicate with you throughout the treatment about depth and pressure. At the end of the massage, the therapist may give after care advice, including stretches and exercises to do to assist you.
Please note: clients may be asked to undress as part of the treatment. Please wear appropriate underwear and loose-fitting clothing to the appointment.
