Soft Tissue Therapy

icons_template_spineSoft-tissue injuries are generally caused by an overuse problem such as repetitive motion or acute trauma. For example poor posture can lead to an overuse syndrome.

Chiropractors are trained in a variety of muscle therapy modalities, which help to improve circulation and reduce pain. The need and benefits of these therapies vary from patient to patient.

Our office uses various hands on techniques such as Myofascial Release Technique and Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Techniques to aid in the repair of damaged soft tissues.  We also utilize Therapeutic Ultrasound, Muscle Stimulation, Hot Packs, ICE and Foam Rollers.

At the start of care we will prescribe stretching exercises to lengthen tight muscles and reduce pain. Eventually rehabilitative exercises will be taught to you to strengthen weak muscles and help to prevent future injuries.
