Micro stretching

I often see judo players receiving Physio or having a massage from therapists.  Treating injuries is very important to assist athletes to recover and for regeneration of damaged muscles etc. what I don’t get is why therapists apply so much pressure to damaged areas that the athlete is in even more pain. Maybe micro stretching is the answer?
