There are many horror stories preceding sports massage, the main worry being 'does massage hurt?'. The treatment may cause some discomfort, however there should be no pain, and any discomfort should get easier. One possible side effect of massage therapy is temporary muscle soreness and discomfort. Always check with a health care provider first about any precautions that need to be taken based on personal medical history. During the massage, tell the therapist if the pressure is too deep or uncomfortable, the patient is always in control of treatment. Honestly report any injuries that may require the therapist to go lighter or even avoid certain areas. Soreness that occurs a day or two after the massage should be discussed with the therapist after treatment soreness should last no longer than 3 days.
