Keeping pain at bay
When a joint in the body becomes misaligned and loses its normal range of motion, the muscles in that area can tighten over time. These tightened areas can eventually even develop knots or adhesions, which act similar to scar tissue.
Soft tissue therapy can be helpful in removing these issues until the normal position and mobility have been restored in the joint. Soft tissue therapy can include massage, sustained manual pressure, stretching, and other pain-reducing techniques.
Treatments involved in soft tissue therapy are typically short. Some may even take just a few minutes. Repetition of treatments—more than duration of them—is typically the key to reducing discomfort. Soft tissue therapy does not work its magic overnight, but it can play a major role in your overall treatment.
