 About Athletic Edge

Athletic Edge was established by sports medicine specialists, athletes, coaches, researchers and therapists around the country that wanted to advance sports medical therapy techniques and help individuals and athletes of all ages and abilities to maximize their capabilities and perform at the optimum level possible.

At Athletic Edge, we strongly believe that specific therapies can provide important benefits in recovering from athletic and occupational musculo-skeletal/soft-tissue injuries, as well as help to prevent future injuries, and enhance your performance levels.

We specialize in Sports Massage Therapy, Structural Integration, Injury Rehabilitation, and Therapeutic Deep Tissue Massage. Since 2002, our therapists have been providing results oriented therapeutic massage treatments.

Our therapists have helped people with neck and back pain, herniated discs, nerve pain like sciatica, scoliosis, sports injuries like IT Band pain and torn or pulled muscles. We deeply blend deep tissue techniques such as myofascial release, neuromuscular therapy, trigger point therapy, and active release. We'll always educate you about the cause of your pain/discomfort, and will provide stretches and exercises for you to do at home.

Athletic Edge is staffed with licensed massage therapists who have a definite common goal: utilizing massage techniques to not only treat athletic injuries and chronic pain, but also to pain in the prevention of future damage to the soft tissues. Athletes of all fitness levels should include sports massage into their training regimen and consider allowing the therapists at Athletic Edge to be a part of their overall wellness program.
