When a muscle is tight, stressed or injured, adhesions can form (bands of painful, rigid tissue) which block circulation, trigger pain and limit movement. The flow of oxygen and nutrients to the muscle is reduced, leading to a build up of toxins in the muscle. Sports massage is a deep tissue massage and so helps to loosen and “unstuck” the adhesion, improving the circulation within the muscle, pushing toxins out and allowing fresh oxygen and nutrients in.
