What does soft tissue therapy involve?
Many people think of soft tissue therapy as a fancy name for massage. But it is so much more than a basic massage. At Espinosa Family Chiropractic, the primary goal of soft tissue therapy is rehabilitation. We assess and determine the extent of pain and inflammation in a given region and use soft tissue therapy to manipulate and man age this pain. By combining this with traditional chiropractic modalities, we offer another dimension to our pain management and prevention arsenal. So why is soft tissue therapy so effective?
The many benefits of soft tissue therapy
While remaining completely natural and hands-on, soft tissue therapy:
- Releases muscle tension
- Manipulates muscle tone and length
- Improves circulation and lymph flow
- Helps in the removal of cellular waste
- Helps balance the musculature
- Breaks up scar tissue adhesion
While it provides a tonic for the body, it also soothes the mind, increasing feelings of relaxation that can, by themselves, go a long way toward addressing the causes of pain.
