The Center for Spine Care and Mobility (CSCM) utilizes various massage therapy techniques depending on the condition. They include medical, sport, and lymph drainage and cranio-sacral therapy as part of its integrated services.
Massage therapy is used to prevent injury and increase circulation and range of motion to enhance athletic performance. For the post-surgical patient, the massage therapist will work toward breaking down scar tissue and decreasing inflammation to reduce pain and alleviate stress. We find that combining massage therapy with the patient’s treatment plan speeds recovery time and helps with overall well-being.
At our integrated clinic, medical massage therapy is a result-oriented treatment that is prescribed by a physician. It is used to specifically treat conditions that have been diagnosed. The therapist utilizes a variety of modalities and the primary focus is on the areas related to the diagnosis. Medical massage is used to release tight muscles, relieve nerve compression, deactivate trigger points, decrease pain and inflammation, increase flexibility and range of motion, improve postural discrepancies, and calm the nervous system to alleviate stress and improve circulation.
For massage therapy, NYC-based CSCM includes sports massage, which can be a vital part of an athlete’s routine. It helps to restore mobility to injured muscle tissue and enhance performance. We utilize this technique to break down scar tissue and improve tissue elasticity. Our massage therapists use active and passive myofascial release, stretching, and trigger point therapy to increase overall performance and prevent injury.
Our therapists have advanced training in lymph drainage techniques to facilitate the healing process after surgery by regenerating tissue and reducing edema. It is also helpful in flushing out toxins from the immune system promoting overall health.
Ask our massage therapists about gentle craniosacral therapy, a non-invasive form of bodywork that addresses the bones of the head, spinal column, and sacrum. The goal is to release compression in these areas, which alleviates stress and pain.
Through successful massage therapy, NYC-based CSCM’s physicians can help diagnose, treat, and relieve your pain. At CSCM, our integrative treatment plan revolves around our 3 principle “R”s: Reset, Reload, and Reinforce. In Reset, we perform the necessary chiropractic adjustments, we Reload the body with the Active Release Technique and soft tissue massage, and, finally, we Reinforce the treatment through physical therapy.
Our unique approach is all-encompassing; all facets of treatment can be and are done under one roof. Having our physicians, physical therapists, and massage therapists work together in one place provides not only convenience, strategy, and comfort, but also the most effective and efficient treatment plan possible.
