Soft Tissue Rehab

Living in chronic pain due to soft tissue injuries? Dr. Sean Sievert and the team at Atlas Natural Medicine in Taylor, TX, offer soft tissue rehab techniques to help you enjoy relief.

Chiropractic Soft Tissue Rehabilitation

Visiting a chiropractor for adjustments to restore alignment to your skeletal system is essential for your general health and wellness. It’s also a very effective way to avoid living in pain. However, it’s important that you don’t overlook your soft tissues in the process.

Chiropractors like Dr. Sievert at Atlas Natural Medicine in Taylor, TX, understand the interworking relationship between the soft and hard tissues and that true health, wellness, and pain relief come from addressing both. Learn about chiropractic soft tissue rehab and its benefits below.

Relationship Between the Hard and Soft Tissues

Did you know that a skeletal issue can create stress on the soft tissues? Likewise, tension and injuries in the soft tissues can put unnecessary stress on the skeletal system.

For example, a misalignment in the upper back can cause tension in the neck and shoulders. This tension can develop into trigger points, which are sensitive knots that restrict movement. On the other hand, tension in the neck and shoulders can pull on the cervical spine, leading to a misalignment. In both cases, treating the tension, trigger points, and misalignment is vital for optimal healing.

Soft Tissue Rehabilitation

Whether your pain begins in the soft tissues or as a result of a skeletal issue, soft tissue techniques can provide relief. Below are some of the various techniques used to address soft tissue problems.

  • Myofascial/trigger point release: Myofascial or trigger point therapy is a technique used to break up trigger points that develop along the fascia. The provider applies a controlled amount of pressure to the knot. When the pressure is released, blood flows to the area to stimulate tissue repair and break up the knots.
  • Dry hydrotherapy massage: Dry hydrotherapy is a technique that combines the power of heat and targeted, pulsating water streams to treatment areas. It provides tension relief, improved blood flow, increased range of motion, and reduced swelling. This is provided through a waterproof layer so that the patient does not get wet.
  • Infrared therapy: Infrared therapy uses red light therapy to penetrate the deep tissues and stimulate cellular healing. It helps reduce inflammation, decrease pain, and speed up recovery.
  • Therapeutic exercises: Specific targeted movements can improve blood circulation, restore range of motion, and break up tension.
