In brief: Yes, As One Element
Sports massage therapy benefits both the mind and the body.
It should be included as one part of the total rehab plan. 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.
