At SportsFit our focus is to treat orthopedic and sports injuries, relieve pain, and improve function. Our goal is to facilitate healing and the renewal of body and mind.
In order to treat orthopedic and sports injuries, knowledgeable and experienced clinical massage therapists are needed. Although there are similarities between a relaxation/spa massage and a clinical/therapeutic massage, the purpose behind both services are very different. Therapeutic massage therapists at SportsFit are hand selected among several applicants for their knowledge of injury, understanding of anatomy and knowing the difference between rehabilitation and relaxation. Therapeutic massage techniques help promote tissue regeneration, relieve post-operative adhesions and inflammation and much more. The following are important key differences between these techniques:

At SportsFit, Our therapists aspire to treat the underlying issue in order to relieve pain and improve function by focusing on finding the cause of the problem. A combination of soft tissue mobilization, isometric mobilization, muscle energy, active release, and myofascial release techniques, in addition to craniosacral therapy are utilized by our therapists in order to resolve pain, increase performance and prevent future recurrences. Our highly skilled Massage Therapists work alongside the SportsFit Doctors of Physical Therapy, successfully addressing medically diagnosed issues and are well prepared to resolve your orthopedic and sports injuries.
The following are some of the benefits of a therapeutic massage:
- Help athletes prepare for and recover from strenuous workouts

- Promote tissue regeneration, reducing scar tissue
- Reduce post-operative adhesions and inflammation
- Reduce muscle spasms and cramping
- Help reduce stiffness and pain from arthritis

Recent treatment models for musculoskeletal pain emphasize the "biopsychosocial model." The biopsychosocial model demands therapist to work hand-in-hand with the physical therapy and medical team in order to create the most optimized treatment approach for clients. It has been clinically demonstrated that such inter-professional teamwork will henceforth facilitate better patient recovery and care.
At SportsFit we aim to be on the leading edge in offering multidisciplinary inter-professional treatment approach in order to enhance the recovery and healing of our clients.
