THE ROLE OF MASSAGE IN SPORTS

The athletes of ancient Greece and the Romans were physically prepared to attend the spas. At present, athletes can enjoy the highly sophisticated and home-made thermal features thanks to 2yield products.

A prolonged physical activity requires a suitable product that “works” on the crio-thermal phase, the antalgic and anti-edemigene phase, allowing effective recovery without concealing injury or “over-stress” articular.

Different physiological mechanisms of muscular functioning and fatigue are now well-known.

It has been scientifically proven that increased production of β-endorphins reduces the latency times of sporting fatigue by reducing the time of possible recovery of contractures, tears and insults of other nature.

Lactic acid is the waste of energy production in the absence of oxygen, ie anaerobic glycolysis. Glycolysis is a catabolic pathway, and is a key milestone in cellular respiration. If conditions are aerobic, Piruvic acid is converted into Acetil CoA and enters the Citric Acid cycle. If conditions are anaerobic, Piruvic acid is converted into lactic acid. During this reaction, Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD), a Latexodydrogenase Coenzyme (LDH), is transformed into NAD +. This allows glycolysis to continue to produce ATP (and energy) in the absence of oxygen.

This occurs in conditions of intense exercise in the muscles. Intensive physical activity soon gives ATP cells and therefore energy. Oxygen can not, however, be supplied to cells at the same speed, so all this takes place in oxygen debt, ie under anaerobic conditions.

This phenomenon is also known as EPOC, an acronym for Excess Postexercise Oxygen Consumption (known as “afterburn”), and is the measure of the increase in oxygen consumption as a result of intense activity aimed at meeting the “oxygen debt ” of the body.

Metabolic anaerobic energy metabolism is typical of fast or mixed white fibers and intervenes during short and intense efforts.

The lactic acid disposal, in optimal physical and athletic conditions, does not last longer than 120 ‘. Post-operative muscle soreness (muscle soreness) is caused by the release of intracellular molecules with tissue microlacing, resulting in very intense workouts, generating localized inflammation, which stimulates neuromuscular endings and induces a feeling of pain.

To reduce the lactic acid-related symptoms and optimize disposal mechanisms, muscle vascularization, enzymatic kinetics and swab system activity must be increased.

2yield products, based on thermal water, contain:

– NACINAMIDE (Vitamin PP) exerts an antioxidant action, as a major component of coenzymes involved in oxygen transport

– TROXURETIN (Vitamin P4) in flogic conditions reduces capillary filtration capacity leading to reduced edema.

– MAGNESIUM, together with other alkalinizing elements present in hyperthermal water, in addition to intervening in buffer mechanisms, regulates the membrane potential of the nerves and muscles.

Physiotherapists specializing in sports medicine often use massage techniques on athletes in different phases:

– Preparation – Heating

In athletic preparation and heating, the massage should, in extraordinarily short time, be a help in optimizing the microcirculation, making the contractile muscle-free response without debt, prolonging the initial response phase and significantly delaying the decline in muscle output.

– Post-workout – Recover after exercise

In the after exercise, the muscular distress phase is preferable to perform it with cryothermic products and utilize swab mechanisms.

– Clinical Rehabilitation – Clinical Rehabilitation

In cases of frequent athletic malady or trauma, the athlete must perform massages that trigger a criotermic, analgic and anti-emotional effect, allowing effective recovery of athletic activity.
