Massage systematically applies manual pressure and movement to the soft tissues of the body—skin, muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia (the membranes enclosing muscles). Medical massage promotes the flow of blood and lymph, relieving tension, stimulating nerves, and stretching and loosening muscles. Therefore, it is often prescribed for sports and repetitive stress injuries.
In the soothing environment of Manhattan Sports Medicine’s offices, our physiatric MD pinpoints body regions for treatment by Licensed Massage Therapists. Using the latest techniques and methodologies they can then provide welcome relief for headache, neck pain, back pain, muscle pain, tension, stress, and some forms of chronic pain.
