This session took place in the Sports Therapy and Rehabilitation clinic. The athlete came to get pre-event massage and stretching before their away game. The athlete requested a massage to his quadriceps, hamstrings, calves and back. Following this, I stretched his hamstrings, quadriceps, calves and glutes. The aim of this treatment was to prevent/reduce the stiffness the player experiences after long bus journeys to their away games (Crommert, Lacourpaille, Heals, Tucker & Hug 2014).
