The body’s soft tissues consist of muscles, ligaments, and tendons. When these areas exhibit abnormal tension from poor posture, traumatic injury, or sprain, the pressure produces pain and tenderness. Not just for athletes, soft tissue therapy is for anyone recovering from a soft tissue injury. This tissue therapy is a holistic approach with the aim of relieving pain and inflammation, preventing further damage, reducing spasms, correcting abnormal postures, and improving circulation. A Chiropractor will press and knead soft tissue structures using their hands or a mechanical device. This hands-on therapy is a specialized approach that has been used for years. It is common and considered normal for the area to be red and tender after treatment.
Chiropractic care is a safe and effective way to find relief for your pain while also improving your overall health and wellness at the same time. It is not just a treatment for body injuries: It’s changing your quality of life. It’s a way to gain better mobility and sleep, to improve your nervous and immune systems, and to enhance every function in the body.
