What is soft tissue rehab?
Within the human body, ligaments, tendons, muscles, fat, nerves, and even blood vessels all fall under the umbrella of soft tissue. These tissues surround our organs and bones to provide structure and facilitate function, so we can move, breathe, and generally live our lives. When it comes to chiropractic care, soft tissue rehab usually addresses dysfunction in muscles, fascia, or connective tissue with manual therapy.
Some of the common methods of soft tissue therapy include:
- Chiropractic massage
- Trigger point therapy
- Kinesio tape
- Myofascial work
Benefits of Soft Tissue Rehab
Soft tissue treatment is designed to target tightness and impaired movement. For example, if you’ve been in an auto accident, your neck or back might feel “locked up”, causing pain and restricting motion. Or maybe you’ve been training hard in the gym, and you noticed you’re too tight in some areas to perform the way you’d like. Our team can use soft tissue therapy to target those problem areas and get you back to optimal performance.
After even just one session, the benefits of soft tissue rehab can include:
- Reduced pain
- Increased mobility
- Better sleep
- Improved athletic performance
- Less stress
- …and more.
Depending on your situation, your specific treatment plan will vary, so be sure to check in with our chiropractor to get the most out of soft tissue rehab.
