There are two specific treatments performed on athletes at sports events called pre and post event.

For pre event strokes of friction; compression and jostling. This technique compliments and enhances warm up, it does not eliminate warm up routines for the specific sport. Often there is specific stretches that will make a significant difference.

Post event is after the competition to help cool down, flush out the lactates and metabolite that build up during the competition.
