In an interview with the Atlanta Journal Constitution, the massage therapist for the Atlanta Thrashers pro hockey team described the typical injuries incurred by the team and the type of massage he uses to address them.

“In hockey, the kind of injuries most guys have involve the lower back, glutes, hamstrings, hip flexors, the lower body,” massage therapist Inar Treiguts said. “The whole purpose is to get the body ready, the muscles ready. … Sometimes I use percussion. … I use massage lotions, my elbows and forearms.”
