Benefits of Massage with Therapy Balls for Athletes
Rolling with therapy balls is a simple but effective soft tissue massage technique that can have a number of benefits for athletes. And yes, I mean athletes of allll ages!
Here are five reasons why rolling is worth incorporating into athlete’s training routines:
1- Improved Flexibility: Rolling can help to increase blood flow to the muscles, which can help to improve flexibility and range of motion. This can be especially beneficial for youth athletes who may have tight muscles due to growth spurts or overuse or for adults who sit long hours at work.
2- Reduced Muscle Soreness: By applying pressure to specific muscle groups, rolling can help to hydrate tissue and relieve tension, which can lead to reduced muscle soreness and fatigue.
3- Prevent Injuries: Rolling can help to identify and address areas of muscle imbalance, which can help to prevent injuries from occurring in the first place.
4- Faster Recovery: By promoting blood flow and reducing muscle tension, rolling can help to speed up recovery times and get athletes back to training sooner.
5- Increased Performance: By improving flexibility and reducing muscle soreness, foam rolling can help young athletes perform at their best.
Overall, rolling is a simple, inexpensive and effective way for athletes to stay healthy, prevent injuries and improve performance.
Think of it as getting a massage, anytime you want one, from your own home.
