You’ve heard it before, soft tissue therapy. Soft tissue therapy is a technique used involving massaging, moving the body to stretch and break up adhesions, scar tissue and knots in the soft tissues like muscles, tendons, ligaments, and fascia. Our daily activity can lead to injuries within soft tissues. If gone untreated it can build up and decrease your range of motion, function and begin to cause you pain. These injuries also have the potential to lead to overuse and overstretching only causing you more problems. Lucky for you, you have the best chiropractors and massage therapists in the area trained in soft tissue therapies like Active Release Technique, and deep tissue sports massage to help prevent any future issues and resolve your pain at its core.
