Évaluation des effets du massage post-effort sur la récupération sportive chez le coureur cycliste

Abstract : Post-exercise massage is one of the most used interventions in the field of recovery, especially for cyclists. However, several authors regularly question its effectiveness for sport use. The objective of this work it to update knowledge on the effects of recovery massage on cyclists. Methods : a literature review was conducted from the Pubmed, Scopus, PEDro, Cochrane databases, using two indicators: subsequent performance and muscle pain. Results : 18 articles were collected. Reports have led to a better understanding of the conditions under which massage should be applied, its ability to reduce muscle pain but there is still little evidence to support or refute its effects on subsequent performance. An interventional research protocol adapted to cyclists has therefore been proposed. Discussion and conclusion : Additional studies are needed to justify the use of massage as a means of recovery for cyclists. In addition, recovery involves many process and massage is only one of them.
