Soft Tissue Therapy

Soft Tissue Therapy

Our Chiropractors at Chiropractic Health are experienced in the use of working with soft tissue, which is another form of Chiropractic care, specifically for muscles, ligaments and fascia. Soft Tissue Therapy is used to reduce tension and knots in the soft tissue, which can be causing issues such as pain, postural issues and weakness. A common cause of muscular pain is from active trigger points, where compression of the muscle can help reduce this built up tension and provide relief for the patient. Working on soft tissue essentially relaxes the muscles and prompts activation of the muscles that are not working. It also has the ability to increase the healing process of a certain sprain, strain or tear.
