Massage Therapy And Hockey Injury Prevention Sunstone Registered Massage Ontario

The reality of playing Hockey – you can be nursing an upper-body injury, struck in the head with a puck at practice. You can be placed on the long-term injury reserve list due to a torn muscle for your shoulder.

Your recovery may be five-to-six months, effectively ending your hockey season.

With a hip injury you can miss playing hockey for an undetermined length of time.

A Charley horse can result in sitting out on games.

A back injury can put you on the sidelines and be placed on the injured reserve and not play during the season.

Don’t be sidelined from an injury – and return to action against your next match or competition.
