‘Recover quicker, train harder, and increase flexibility’: massage therapy for elite paracyclists, a mixed-methods study'

KEY FINDINGS

► Massage therapy aids able-bodied athlete recovery. Until now, no studies have investigated the effects of massage therapy in a para-athlete population.
Massage therapy, however, showed no improvement in health-related quality of life for a small sample of elite paracyclists.
Our study showed that massage therapy assisted in para-athletes’ recovery, particularly in the area of reducing muscle tightness and in improving sleep.
