Massage those miles away

Jan 11th, 2014

Neil Sutton asked The Guru for the following Physiotherapy Advice:

I’m about to start training for my first half marathon of the year after cutting my mileage down significantly for the 12 months to average only 7-10 miles per week. Would I benefit from a sports massage before picking up the miles? I am a long term sufferer of tight calves and hamstrings.
Thanks

The Guru Responded:

Hi Neil
.
Not sure you can ever be over massaged! I’m not sure thought that massage is the long term answer for tight hammy’s or calf’s.
.

Sports Massage
Sure massage will help, but until you get to the bottom of why they are tight, they will stay that way.
.
Commonly, poor foot control and/or poor shoe selection will contribute to over loading and over using your muscles, causing them to feel tight….
