Understanding Your Journey with Sports Therapy: Managing Expectations and Embracing the Healing Process

At Fleet Sports Therapy, our primary goal is to treat the root cause of your pain and enhance your overall well-being. This blog post aims to guide you through what to expect after a session, how to manage your expectations, and the unique benefits of The Jing Method™ of Advanced Clinical Massage.

What to Expect After a Sports Therapy Session

After an initial sports therapy session, it’s common to experience a range of sensations. Here’s a brief overview of what you might feel and why:

  1. Discomfort and Soreness: Similar to the sensation of Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS), it is normal to feel some discomfort post-treatment. This is a sign that your muscles and tissues are responding to the deep work done during the session.

  2. Muscle Activation and Deactivation: Pain often leads the body to unconsciously switch some muscles off while activating others, creating imbalances. Our goal is to address these imbalances through targeted treatment.

  3. Initial Pain Relief: While some may experience immediate relief, others might need multiple sessions to notice significant changes. The aim is to achieve long-term improvement rather than a quick fix.

Managing Your Expectations

Every individual's response to treatment is unique. Here’s how you can manage your expectations for the best outcome:

  • Be Patient: Healing is a gradual process. It may take a few sessions to notice substantial improvements.

  • Follow Post-Session Advice: Engage in the prescribed exercises and stretches to support your recovery.

  • Communicate Openly: Share your feedback with your therapist to adjust the treatment plan as needed.
