For those suffering from sports injuries, who are frequently injured or are training hard as an athlete, maintenance massages are a great option. This massage helps patients to maintain healthy muscles and to improve a patient’s overall athletic performance. Many athletes opt to incorporate massage into their regular training schedule as they have found that they recover faster from intense workouts. Sports massage in Aurora can also relieve conditions that if left untreated and trained with, can lead to more serious workouts. At True Balance Massage, our Denver sports massage therapist aims to restore stiffness, limited range of motion, sore muscles, inflammation and pain for her athlete client base.
Some of the most popular orthopedic assessment tests include and are not limited to: space-occupying lesion tests (cough test, straight leg raise, slump test), tests for injured tissues (such as active and passive SLR and other specific tests). SLR, cough and slump tests are all used to assess the lumbar spine and buttocks. This looks for bulging or herniated discs and bone spurs. The active and passive SLR tests are looking for sprains and strains throughout the body.
