What I have found so interesting in working with athletes is that you will do anything to get across the finish line or accomplish the feat of athleticism you are working towards. There is a drive within an athlete like none other I have seen. You are to be highly admired.

Your training increases and intensifies the closer you are to your event and this is usually when injury occurs and pain strikes. Your choices are to keep going and work through the pain or stop training and fall short of the accomplishment you set out to conquer. The thought of striving toward a goal and having it come to an abrupt halt causes additional emotional pain.

Maintenance of your Machine

Your body is the machine that is striving toward that finish line. As with all machines, they need maintenance. At Vita Massage, we have been working with athletes since 1991. Our experiences include working with weekend warriors, high school football, basketball and wrestling, college football, basketball and swimming all the way to two rotations at the Colorado Springs Olympic Center.
Each body is different and responds differently to massage. One thing remains the same, it needs the maintenance that massage therapy provides. Expert services customized to your unique circumstance is what is offered at Vita. The skills that are employed are Orthopedic, Pain Management, Medical and Sports Massage along with the Kinesio Taping Method and Ace Massage and Medicupping.

Integrating Sport Massage into your training and event schedule emphasizes injury prevention and performance enhancement. Athletes should schedule massage pre-event, intra-event and post-event to provide care through every step of your adventures.

The benefits of Sports Massage are performance enhancement, injury prevention and rehabilitation. If injury occurs and rehabilitation is needed, Sports Massage speeds the healing process through stimulating the circulation of blood and lymph fluids. Your bodies reaction to injury is to clamp down on the injured area and the result is inflammation. Restricted tissue does not allow nutrient rich blood to flow which slows the healing process and restricts range of motion.

Our therapists have access to the best Sports Massage Therapist in Pittsburgh, our clinical director, Scott Korb. They receive their direction, clinical information and advice directly from Scott giving them an edge in the field of Sports Massage.

Sports Massage is designed for athletes but is useful for anyone with chronic pain, injury, or range-of-motion issues.

Don't Take Our Word For It!

Sports Massage Testimonial

Longtime client, John, shares how the services at Vita Massage helped him accomplish his athletic goal.

“I started seeing Scott while training for the 2014 Pittsburgh Marathon. I had paused my training for 3 weeks before I found Scott. I was exhibiting back spasms, so Scott accessed me and then proceeded to unlock my adductors and hips. I went for an 18-mile training run the next morning and kept on training until I crossed the finish line.  Scott doesn't just address the superficial pain; he addresses the root cause and provides real tangible relief.”
