After an injury. Research shows that the sooner you start therapy following an injury the better.
If you suffer a sprain or muscle tear don’t leave it to get better by itself. It is recommended that you rest during the acute stage of an injury which lasts about 3 days but as soon as the swelling and pain is at a manageable level is a good time start light massage therapy. Massage assists the healing process with faster muscle recovery allowing you to exercise sooner and more effectively.
