Is massage contraindicated for muscle overuse?

When we have a client with the following condition:
muscle overuse

Do not massage muscles if you suspect injuries, such as bruising or tearing of muscle fibres, unless you are trained to treat sports injuries. If there are no injuries, massage is helpful on overused or overworked muscles.

Signs and symptoms for
muscle overuse

  • Often the first sign may be stiffness or soreness (especially in the morning) which may disappear with warm-up
  • Continued use may cause continued damage and the pain will last through and past warm-up and may be even worse after activity is finished
