Medical Massage Therapy with Your Bryant Park Chiropractor
Your midtown chiropractors recommend medical massage therapy to reduce muscle and joint pain, improve blood circulation, stimulate the release of endorphins and to remove harmful toxins by enhancing the functioning of the lymph system. Medial massage therapy also offers psychological advantages by alleviating stress and reducing high levels of blood cortisol, a powerful stress hormone promoting the development of many chronic medical conditions. In fact, chiropractors know all too well the long-term effects of elevated cortisol levels—high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, high cholesterol and recurring infections. Receiving regular medical massage therapy and chiropractic care your New York chiropractors will not only help ease the pain of musculoskeletal inflammation but will also improve your mood, help restore normal sleep patterns and reduce anxiety.
What is a Medical Massage?
When chiropractors give medical massages, they manipulate connective tissue and muscle layers to alleviate soreness, pain, muscle spasms and stress. Tailored by your midtown chiropractor to address each patient's individual health problems, a medical massage may also decrease your need to take medications while significantly improving your quality of life.
Conditions that respond well to medical massage therapy include:
• Many types of chronic or acute pain (back, neck, shoulder and joint pain)
• Soft tissue injuries
• Nerve compression/neuropathy
• Tight, tense muscles/muscle spasms
• Anxiety and depression caused by stress

Benefits of a Medical Massage
In addition to reducing your risk of suffering ischemia, or lack of blood flow to soft tissues, medical massage therapy can also ease nerve entrapment conditions that contribute to muscle atrophy, numbness/tingling, pseudo sciatica and piriformis syndrome, a painful disorder affecting the sciatic nerve.
Medical massage can help deactivate myofascial trigger points that cause pain to emerge in various parts of your body. Trigger points are areas of soft tissue suffering abnormally intense neurological activity. In fact, chiropractors suspect as much as 75 percent of general aches and pains may be generated by myofascial trigger points existing throughout the body.
Maintaining proper circulation is essential to your overall health. The bloodstream carries oxygen and nutrients to body cells while removing waste expelled by cells. Medical massage promotes improved transportation of nutrients to cells by stimulating your circulatory system.
Receiving regular medical massages from your chiropractor near Rockefeller Center may further help prevent the development of painful, chronic conditions by proactively eliminating trigger points, reducing cortisol levels and boosting immune system functioning.
