What’s the Best Sports Massage in Denver for Eliminating Back Pain?

SportStretch is a unique style of massage that offers a combination of movement, myofascial release, and relaxation by a trained therapist who uses his/her body weight to deliver the massage. It is performed on a mat, rather than on a table.

SportStretch is among the best types of sports massage in Denver to get rid of back pain.

A SportStretch session at The FAST Lab promises a holistic full-body experience, combining movement with therapeutic myofascial release and relaxation through a unique Thai-style manual therapy. By integrating body weight into the process, the therapist can target areas often overlooked in traditional massages, providing athletes with a diverse range of benefits.

How does SportStretch massage help with back pain?

At The FAST Lab, we recognize that many athletes are accustomed to traditional massages but may not have explored alternative techniques. Our SportStretch therapy offers a myriad of advantages, such as increased range of motion, enhanced mobility, improved stability, better balance, stress and tension relief, and mental calmness. The goal is to provide a comprehensive experience that extends beyond the typical massage, reducing pain and contributing to improved sports performance.

The standout feature of SportStretch therapy is the profound sense of lightness that athletes often experience post-session. This sensation is achieved by facilitating lower body circulation, effectively flushing blood flow from the legs to the heart. Firm pressure is applied to key muscle groups including the quads, hamstrings, adductors, calves, and glutes. By combining pressure with movement and controlled breathing, we create space for fresh blood to circulate, thereby alleviating tension and reducing pain  in notoriously tight areas like the low back and shoulders.

What are the benefits of SportStretch massage?

  1. Enhanced Circulation: Our technique promotes lower body circulation, ensuring efficient blood flow from the legs to the heart.
  2. Immediate Structural Improvement: Incorporating firm pressure, movement, and breath, our therapy offers a noticeable difference in structural alignment almost immediately after the session.
