Massage helps prevent injury. It also enables runners to recover from injuries faster. Sports massage can enhance performance, can help recovery after hard training and it maximizes the quality of rest time. Sports massage also promotes tissue repair and nutritional supply to the muscles. It should ideally be incorporated within a running schedule.
