When my son got injured playing football, I knew that he was going to have a hard time with not playing. Thankfully, the doctor said that he would only miss a handful of games as long as he rested for several weeks and followed his orders. One of those orders was undergoing sports massage therapy in Kent because of the type of injury that my son sustained. While it was not extremely painful for him, it had a high chance of happening again because the injury would not heal 100 percent on its own.
The doctor wanted him to have the sports massage before returning to practice for a few reasons. The main reason was to help prevent further injuries of the same magnitude from occurring again. While he was insistent upon sports massage therapy, he did not have a specific massage therapist in mind. I decided to go online and research the different therapists because I knew that I wanted my son to have the best one that I could find. There were several in Kent that I was able to look further into, and I was happy to have this option because I did find the right therapist because of online reviews other patients had left.
The massage therapist I chose was able to see him right away, and he ended up having weekly sessions up to returning to training. He suggested that my son should continue to receive the massages at a lesser frequency. When he explained what maintenance massages could help with, I definitely agreed. Since returning to football, my son has appreciated the sport even more because of having to sit out with his injury. He also feels better after getting post-event massages and I think this is actually helping him to become a better player overall too.
