Yes! The name "sports massage" can be misleading as this type of massage is not only for sportsmen but anyone who suffers from chronic or recurring muscle pain e.g. upper shoulder and neck pain. Athletes who are doing a lot of training need regular sports massages to help them recover quickly and prevent injury so they can continue to train and improve their performance.
