Sports Massage | MoveTrue

MoveTrue are leading experts in Sports Massage and Soft Tissue Therapy in Bury

Sports Massage and Soft Tissue Therapy

MoveTrue utilises many types of soft tissue management techniques with sports massage, deep tissue massage, soft tissue release, Functional Range Release (FR) and myofacsial release all being options during a session when the therapist sees it as necessary. Sports massage and all of these other soft tissue inputs provide a window of opportunity for you to progress and achieve good quality movement.

Musculoskeletal Assessment

Using principles of Functional Range Assessment (FRA) and Functional Range Release (FR) a combination of palpation and table testing assessments are carried out to obtain a clear picture of your tissue quality and movement capabilities. Specific treatment strategies are then built and followed in order to restore tissue function. This assessment will be done at the beginning of your session so that treatment can be tailored to the areas of tissues which need it the most, thus offering the greatest impact and improvement.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to be sports person to have treatment with MoveTrue?

No. We treat anyone and everyone no matter what your level of activity, age or background. We aim to assist people in moving better and restore physical function in any areas of concern.

Will I have time to do the exercises prescribed to me?

That’s ENTIRELY up to you! Specific routines given as homework will generally take between 10 mins and 30 mins a day of your time. To create biological change within human tissues there has to be consistent directional forces put through them over a period of time. If creating change is a priority for you, then you should prioritise doing the exercises daily.

Will exercises be prescribed specifically for me?

Absolutely. Exercises will be prescribed for you based on the findings of your 1-1 assessment/treatment to ensure fast and long-lasting improvement.

How is FR treatment different to a sports massage?

Functional Release treatment is far from a massage in that it is significantly more accurate when locating and identifying tightness and tension in areas of tissue. This comprehensive system uses assessment, palpation and force application both passively (by the therapist) or actively (by the client).

What is a typical treatment like?

It depends on the issue presented and the goal of the client, but expect to do a little bit of active work as well as recieving various types of soft tissue treatment.

How many treatments will I need?

The severity of the injury/dysfunction and/or the goal(s) of the client will dictate how many sessions are required. The techniques used during sessions are highly effective and, provided the exercises prescribed are carried out, tissue quality and overall function will rapidly improve.
