Soft Tissue Therapy
At Elite Chiropractic & Wellness Center in Beverly Hills, we work with a wide range of patients to reduce pain and improve joint function. Soft tissue therapy is used on muscles, tendons, and ligaments after an injury or when pain persists. When there is tension in your soft tissues, it can cause pain, stiffness, and poor joint mobility. Chiropractic care goes beyond adjustments and provides a variety of benefits for your overall health.
Understanding Soft Tissue Therapy
When you have pain or tightness in your soft tissues, it can lead to trouble with your range of motion. You may feel tenderness in the area, or have difficulty walking. This can be caused by an acute injury or chronic misuse of your joints. You may feel a tightness that hurts or struggle with a knot in your muscles that you can't seem to alleviate. Soft tissue therapy improves your circulation and breaks up scar tissue to help you heal. This type of therapy is a hands-on treatment that provides nutrient-dense blood to your soft tissues.
The Benefits of Soft Tissue Therapy
When you see our chiropractors for soft tissue therapy, you may find pain relief as quickly as your first visit. Once your blood flow is increased to the area, it will help your tissue recover. Massage can also improve blood flow, as can ultrasound and hot therapy. The tissue can heal faster when blood flows freely to the area. When your muscles are tight, it becomes more difficult for your blood to reach the tissues.
Exercises to Improve Your Range of Motion
Soft tissue therapy will address your poor range of motion and provide better mobility over time. Once you can move your joints, you will begin to work on strengthening the injured area. With better muscle strength, you will be able to move easier. The exercises should not hurt, as you are working to build up your strength slowly. Talk with Dr. Mahtaban or Dr. Fantasia if you experience pain after performing the exercises. Adjustments can be made to the treatment plan as needed.
