Yes, Almost Any: Almost any injury can benefit from massage, whether the injury itself or the area surrounding the injury. Sports massage therapy benefits both the mind and the body. Benefits include increased blood flow, range of motion, flexibility, and elimination of exercise waste (lactic acid); decreased muscle tension and neurological excitability; and an increased sense of well-being.
