Sports Massage Course
Understand the Athlete's Movements, and Create an Effective Massage Treatment Plan
Sports massage is a specialized form of massage therapy that can help athletes enhance their performance, prevent injuries, and recover from training and competition.
To be effective, sports massage therapists need to understand the athlete's biomechanics and how they may be impacting muscles, joints, and overall performance.
At RSM, our sports massage courses provide students with the knowledge and skills needed to assess an athlete's movement patterns and develop an effective massage treatment plan. By understanding the athlete's unique needs and goals, sports massage therapists can create customized treatment plans that target specific muscles and address any imbalances or weaknesses.
Our courses cover a range of techniques and modalities, including deep tissue massage, myofascial release, and assisted stretching, giving students a comprehensive understanding of sports massage therapy. With the right training, sports massage therapists can play an essential role in helping athletes achieve their full potential while minimizing the risk of injury.
Combination with Assisted Stretching and Myofascial Release
The sports massage course offered by RSM teaches sports trainers how to effectively use massage therapy and enhance conditioning massages to improve athletic performance and prevent injuries.
In this course, trainers will learn how to quickly detect factors that reduce sports performance
For example, muscle stiffness, localized muscle tension, and pain from soft tissue damage due to intense physical activity. They will also learn how to apply suitable massages and stretching techniques to maintain conditioning and prevent injuries.
By taking this course, sports trainers will learn how to rapidly identify potential injuries and compensatory movements in athletes, develop effective treatment plans, and integrate sports massage into training programs.
Furthermore, trainers will learn how to analyze an athlete's movements using functional anatomy, which allows them to maintain a high level of conditioning throughout the season without injury. Additionally, based on the muscle condition and joint range of motion gained from sports massage, trainers will be able to create tailored training programs for athletes.
