This is a speciality within remedial massage that uses (ISRM believes) the same range of clinical skills. Many 'so called' sports injuries have much to do with an athlete's posture and/or other factors outside of their sport, and the distinction between the two is often unclear. The real difference with sports massage is the focus on recovery from training and the early identification and treatment of potential soft tissue problems. With a thorough assessment of the condition of the athlete's soft tissues through massage, the therapist can monitor how he or she is responding to training. This can allow the athlete to 'fine-tune' their training to avoid injury and enhance performance.
Sports massage can be beneficial at various stages of participation. For example:
The Conditioning/training phase
Pre competition, a couple of day before a marathon
Inter competition, at half time
Post competition, recovery from any sporting event
