Soft Tissue Therapy

Posted on by

Soft Tissue Therapy – Are hands-on massage techniques which address muscles, tendons, ligaments, and fascia (a specific type of connective tissue).

Pain and stiffness don’t happen only in the joints but, very often occur in the muscles and other connective tissues.

Myofascial Release Therapy is one of our favored techniques and Neuromuscular Therapy is another.  Does your chiropractor offer you the benefit of these valuable treatments?


Common conditions responding well to STW      (soft tissue work) are:

  • Tendonitis 

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

  • Adhesive Capsulitis (frozen shoulder)

  •  Hip Pain/ IT Band Syndrome 

  • Lumbar Strain

  • Plantar Fasciitis

  • Fibromyalgia

  • Thoracic Outlet Syndrome

  • Trigger Points

  • Scar Tissue (either from injuries or from surgery)

  • Headaches and Migraines

  • Whiplash/ Neck Strain


Besides the improved healing of injuries, STW has also been noted to have the following benefits:

  • Relieve tight muscles and trigger points

  • Help to relieve nerve compression/entrapment

  • Decrease  pain and inflammation

  • Increase  circulation

  • Calm the nervous system

  • Increase  joint range of motion

  • Improve  posture

  • Elevate mood/ decrease depression and anxiety

  • Lower blood pressure

  • Decrease asthma symptoms

  • Improve immune function

  • Decrease arthritis symptoms

  • Relieve premenstrual cramping


So, why not choose a Doctor of Chiropractic who will help you more thoroughly by addressing both components? Most conditions related to the skeletal frame include the muscles which move it. Healing time is usually faster and better when hands-on* soft tissue therapies are used in combination with chiropractic adjusting.
