How Chiropractors Approach Soft Tissue Injuries

Often, the pain caused by a soft tissue injury is the result of muscle tension. By using massage therapy, it’s often possible to relieve muscle tension. This can result in quick pain relief. Further, by addressing the root cause of pain (muscle tension), it’s often possible to secure lasting relief. When you take painkillers, they often only block pain signals from reaching the brain. This means the pain can quickly return once the medications wear off.

Soft tissue massage involves using tried and true hands-on techniques to relieve muscle tension. Putting pressure on the right part of a muscle or stretching a part of your body can quickly relieve tension. It can also produce a release of endorphins, which are your body’s natural pain-relief hormones. This can result in a happy feeling as well.

Additional Resources

A chiropractor can also teach you how to perform a variety of therapeutic exercises that you can use at home to reduce muscle tension and relieve strain. These stretching and strengthening exercises will help you build up strength over time, which could reduce the risk of future pains while also providing short-term relief. That said, it’s important to learn how to perform these exercises properly, or you could aggravate injuries.

Laser therapy, spinal decompression, and other techniques may also help with soft tissue pain. If your spine is not properly aligned, this could result in lasting pain. By using chiropractic adjustment and other techniques, it may be possible to permanently resolve muscle tension.
