Clinical Sports Massage

Commonly known injuries and pathologies can both occur during athletic endeavors as well as during every day activities. The familiar feeling of a pulled hamstring or a diagnosis of Tennis Elbow could be derived from playing tennis or repetitive work duties in a warehouse.

The Clinical Sports Massage therapist is able to understand the biomechanics of activity and mechanisms of injury that would contribute to pain and dysfunction for the patient/client. Utilizing that knowledge, along with an advanced understanding of functional anatomy, assessment protocols, and soft tissue healing, the therapist is able to strategize bodywork best suited for their patient/client for both preventative and rehabilitative treatments.

Though the title of “Clinical Sports Massage” may sound like every client is an athlete, the term is used to represent a focus on activity based injuries and pathologies. Clinical Sports Massage is not a singular modality. The practice encompasses a combination of advanced functional anatomy, kinesiology, and various types of stretching and soft tissue manipulation. In the ANMT program you will become adept at utilizing all of these concepts.
