MASSAGE AND BIKING
Neck and shoulder pain
Cyclists are known for experiencing neck and shoulder pain, especially when riding for long periods of time on the “drops”. While this aerodynamic position increases your speed, it also can cause muscles to be overstretched and contract. Massage is an excellent way to alleviate soreness and release those contracted muscles.
Bikers often have stronger quadricep muscles than hamstrings. This imbalance can cause knee, hip, and lower back pain or injury. Massage helps ease this pain. Ron can also offer suggestions on how to strengthen opposing muscles to help prevent future occurrences.
Injuries from crashes
Bike falls and crashes can take a big toll on your body even after road rash, bruises, or broken bones heal. Orthopedic massage helps your body recover faster and more completely after a traumatic experience such as a bike accident.
“Ron is known to our family as the 'magic man'. He not only found and fixed a neck injury from three years ago I didn't realize still hurt, he saw my daughter just after a swim injury (overtraining) and helped her too. With one short session, she was able to compete in a swim meet we did not think she would be ready for. I have been to several massage therapists over the years. Ron is by far the best when it comes to recovering from sports and injuries.”
