Welcome to our community of massage, bodywork and reflexology practitioners. Therapists, if it's been more than two weeks, it's time for your massage.

You're the manager, you've been told how important stretching is, most of your team is also probably ignoring how important stretching is, make it a team activity, including you, for a couple of minutes of post game stetching.ace88 wrote:I try to stretch before and after games, but being that I am the manager, I am responsible for bases, bats, softballs, paying the ump, writing the lineup, etc...and exercise sometimes gets lost in the shuffle.

I wasn't going to mention it to a therapist at a chiropractor's office that I only had for the 2nd time. I would think maybe someone who has their own practice might address it in a 90 minute massage, but not at the chiro's office during a 30 minute massage, to someone I barely know. To several therapists I've mentioned hamstrings, but that was probably too "vague" because the pain was too much on the inside of my hamstrings, and could only really be treated laying on my back facing upwards. I think it is very impressive when therapists can find really, really painful or tight spots on you on their own just by you describing a general area.
