The medical department at Salisbury City FC

The medical department at SalisburyCity FC has recently been re-structured with the arrival of James Grigg.

Physiotherapy Salisbury

Grigg, who was recruited by Salisbury first team manager Tommy Widdrington, now heads the medical team along with current physiotherapist Conrad Parrott and Sports massage therapist and first aider Kevin Bushby. The move is a step forward by the club who are keen to progress to the next level in football.

The medical department at any football club is vital in making sure that the players are constantly able to perform at their very best. It is also responsible for the safe return of inevitably injured players in the shortest time possible.

The restructuring of our medical department will undoubtedly improve performance on the pitch. James comes to us with a wealth of experience and a modern approach which we’ll all benefit from greatly. His official role will be “Head of Medical” and he will work closely with our current medical department”

Sports Massage
Sports Massage in Salisbury

Sports massage is quite simply massage….. just better.
It works by applying deep pressure to areas of tightness
within the muscle often known as knots. These knots
cause pain at the site of the tightness within the muscle.
However, it is also common for muscular knots to cause
pain in other areas of the body that are not tight. This is
called “refereed pain”. For example, tightness in the upper
back and shoulder muscles can cause headache pain.

Sports massage will leave you feeling refreshed,
rejuvenated and relaxed. Due to the demands
of daily living and the stresses we place on our
bodies, many people put up with constant dull
aches or niggling pains. Most of these are of
muscular origin. Sports massage address’s these
issues and resolves them quickly often with
immediate effect.

Sports massage stops headaches

More and more people are reporting to our Salisbury and New Forest Centre’s suffering with headaches. Sports massage is fast becoming the treatment of choice to stop this debilitating condition.

Sports massage headaches

The most common treatment prescribed by doctors for headaches are painkillers. Although this can temporarily  reduce symptoms it does not necessarily  address the underlying issue.

There are many reasons why headaches occur, however, one of the most common is due to tight muscle tissue located in the neck and shoulders. These areas of tightness are known as trigger points.

Trigger points can be described as “little knots” that can be felt within muscle tissue. They often cause pain at the site they are located, however, they can also cause pain in other areas of the body. This is called “referred pain”. Trigger points located in the shoulder and neck muscles often refer headache type pain to the head. Taking prescribed painkillers will target the symptoms of the headache but will not treat the trigger points located in the muscles. This is why people suffering with headaches will quite often experience headaches on a regular basis.

Sports massage works by directly targeting trigger points. Over the past few months we have seen dramatic results with the use of sports massage for people suffering with headaches.

Sports massage is fantastic. I used to have beauty massages but it never helped. I didn’t realise that you didn’t have to play sport to benefit from having a sports massage.

Natalie Hood, Hairdresser

Sitting at work always used to give me pain in my neck and shoulders. Sports massage with James has released all the problems areas within my muscles and staying seated at work is no longer a problem. It has made a huge difference!

Katherine Sharpe, Secretary

I used to take painkillers at least 4 times a week to stop the headache pain when working. After 3 sports massage treatments at James Grigg Salisbury I have not had another headache. I no longer need painkillers and feel so much more relaxed at work. I would thoroughly recommend sports massage to anyone suffering with headaches as the results have been fantastic

David Colin, Finance Director

Sports massage is a natural way to not only tackle symptoms of headaches but also directly tackle the cause of headaches. If you would like to know more about how sports massage can help you then please contact either our Salisbury Centre or New Forest Centre by clicking here
