A Soothing Massage Can Help Treat a Variety of Issues

Posted .

The human musculoskeletal system is a complex combination of joints, bones, muscles and connective tissues that are tasked with the important job of providing you with mobility. Tension, stress, posture problems and repetitive motion can potentially impede the comfortable function of your body. This can, in turn, lead to other complications as well as a decreased quality of life.

In some of these cases, Dr. Julie Kupersmith M.D., P.C can provide massage services at her Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Center, located in New Rochelle, New York. The nature and severity of your issue will influence the treatment plan she puts forth. Fortunately, Dr. Kupersmith is experienced in several different forms of massage, including Swedish massage, deep massage, sports massage and trigger point massage.

Swedish massage is typically very gentle and employs long strokes, deep circular movements and vibration as well as tapping key locations. This can help relax and energize the patient. Sports massages and Swedish massages use a very similar technique. Sports massage is used for athletic patients in the prevention and treatment of sports-related injuries.  

The deep massages performed by Dr. Kupersmith employs slower yet more forceful strokes to effectively target the deeper layers of muscle and associated connective tissues. Deep massages are commonly used in treatment plans to help with muscle damage.

Dr. Kupersmith might use trigger point massage to focus on areas with tight muscle fibers that have developed from injuries or overuse.
