This activity creates accelerated wear and tear processes in body tissues, especially tendons, muscles, ligaments and cartilage. In the absence of body preparation and adequate treatment, these loads can lead to discomfort and functional disability. The treatment method includes sports massage techniques, pressure, joint movements, stretching of all muscles of the body, energetic and relaxing movements, tissue vibrations, hot and cold compresses, etc.
