The Importance of Massage Therapy for Athletes

The importance of massage therapy for athletes is now highly recognized, thus the demand for massage therapists is increasing.

A review of 11 published research studies of over 500 people found massage therapy after strenuous exercise resulted in a significant decrease in delayed onset muscle soreness, along with an increase in muscle performance and a drop in creatine kinase.

The studies showed improvement in muscle soreness were greater when participants received massage therapy 48 hours after exercise as compared to 24 hours after exercise.

The participants of the studies also found improvement in muscle performance with post exercise massage.
