Training is about more than learning how to move. You’ll also need to learn how to recover. Clinical Sports massage begins with a proper assessment. Looking into how you train, finding areas that may be weak and need to be strengthened as opposed to what areas are tight and need to be stretched will allow us to be as effective as possible and expedite recovery. The more you understand about how your body is responding to training, the better prepared you’ll be to prevent injury at the earliest signs of dysfunction.

Lamar A. Wilkinson, LMT, MES

Lamar focuses on discovering the origins of symptoms by taking detailed assessments of his clients and creating a focused, goal oriented plan to arrest or reverse dysfunction.

As a Medical Exercise Specialist he then instructs clients on the corrects way to stretch and strengthen affected areas to prevent future injuries.

“When you know the body, you know the solution.”

Pre Assessment

Following consultation we will go through some basic movements to map out any pain patterns/trigger points/immobility to discover any root causes for current symptoms.

The Massage

After assessment, we can begin a target focused massage to the affected regions. You will be required throughout the session to give feedback. The subjective information you give is important when factoring the progress of your therapy and meeting your massage goals.

Post Assessment

Here, following the massage you will be asked to perform the same movement patterns in the pre-assessment. Any changes in comparison to the pre-assessment are recorded and used to calculate how to go forward.

The Plan

This is where it comes together. The information given by you before and after the massage combined with the information taken by myself from each of the previous steps will conclude in a recommended plan of how frequently massage should be performed and the length of each session.
