Event massage and more from WBIC

West Berkshire Injury Clinic has assisted with many sporting events, including cycling, rugby and running events, including many half marathons. As a result, we have a lot of experience in assisting in the aches and pains immediately following an event. If there is a demand, we can also provide pre-event massage and First Aid cover with our fully insured therapists.

West Berkshire Injury Clinic are very busy throughout the year with a number of First Aid and Event days. We have provided first aid cover and/or post-event massage for:

  • Twickenham Great British Bike Ride
  • Newbury Magnificat
  • Newbury Triathlon
  • Englefield 10k
  • Royal Berkshire 10k
  • Allianz Surrey Classic Bike Ride

Andrew Spaak also has personal experience with endurance events having taken part in numerous running events and triathlons across the country. In 2010 he took part in the Great British Bike Ride, cycling from Twickenham to Hungerford via each rugby club in Berkshire in aid of the MS Society.

The Importance of event massage

One of the reasons why an event massage is important arises from the fact that it is much easier to treat any strains or cramps immediately following a specific activity. This will help to prevent further problems such as pain and discomfort in the coming days. Furthermore, this type of sports massage can also detect any possible injuries that the recipient might not be aware of. So, these techniques are excellent ways to ensure that all participants are able to walk away from a specific competition with their heads held high.

Embracing a Hands-On Approach

From marathons to rugby matches and countless other events, the chances of succumbing to a sports injury always exist. A pre- or post-event massage is therefore one of the most effective tools at the disposal of teams and individual participants.

Is a competition scheduled in the near future? If so, it is always wise to schedule a session with West Berkshire Injury Clinic sooner as opposed to later (we are quite busy throughout the year catering to these massages). We look forward to hearing from you and as always, feel free to ask any additional questions that you may have.
