Sports Massage in Wirral

At Younger Chiropractic we offer Sports Massage from our practitioner Amanda Smale to new clients as well as existing patients that have attended our Wirral clinic for Chiropractic.

There is much confusion over what a Sports Massage therapist is and what one does or can offer. On and around the Wirral there are many people offering massage. However, Amanda Smale, our sports massage therapist has tremendous experience both personally from receiving sports massage through to treating many high-end athletes and knowing how to relieve that ache or pain that you are suffering.

These days there are so many people practising ‘massage’ and so many practitioners with different skills and levels of experience that making the decision to see someone can be a daunting thought. Amanda has a wealth of experience and is one of the best in her field and one of the best sports massages that I have received as a Chiropractor over the many years that I have been in practice.

Sports massage is ideal for treating certain injuries and as well as a preventative approach dealing with the health of muscle and connective tissue, the range of movement, tone, symmetry, the balance of muscle and quality of posture. Having sports massage and Chiropractic in-house is the ideal combination for the treatment of many different joint and muscle conditions aiming to restore movement and function to tissues enabling good function, increased range of motion, increased performance and decreased pain.

What is a Sports massage?

Sports massage/sports remedial massage is a deep tissue manipulation of the ligaments, muscles, tendons, and fascia that bind the skeletal system.

  • Joint pain
  • Restricted movement
