Deep Soft Tissue Treatment Explained

Soft Tissue Treatment

It is becoming ever more common to receive soft tissue treatment along with a Chiropractic adjustment as a component of your health care plan. Soft tissue treatment is designed to target muscles in your body that directly affect the range of motion of the spine. More people need soft tissue treatments than receive it. The daily compounding of the stresses of modern life can lead to physical pain or injury. Soft tissue treatment is a technique that specifically targets these long-standing tensions and stresses.

Mental Health and How Chiropractic Can Help

Chiropractic can help with mental health

Our minds make us who we are. Our mind is the mission control center of the body and spirit, --and because of this, mental health is extremely important. Unlike earaches or virus, mental health issues cannot be simply treated with a quick trip to a doc-in-the-box or prescription. Treating mental health issues takes different kinds of remedies to work, and Chiropractic is one of the ways to help relieve mental health issues. 

Myofascial Release vs. Deep Therapy Treatment

Myofascial Release vs. Deep Therapy Treatment

Myofascial and Deep Treatment Release are both hands-on techniques that involve applying deep, gentle sustained pressure into the fascial connective tissues that are causing pain and lack of mobility. First, what is Fascia? Fascia has been described as enigmatic, kind of gauze-like matrix of connective tissue that envelops muscles surrounds the nerves and swathes the organs in a body-wide-web of fibrous collagen.  If you were to remove everything but the fascia, you would have a body that looked like it is entirely created by a spider-web type of material.  This connective tissue not only provides support to your organs, blood vessels, muscles, bones, arteries, and veins, it plays a crucial role in the health and function of your body as well. 

In a healthy state, your fascia is relaxed and can stretch and move without restriction. When your body has experienced physical trauma, scarring, inflammation, repetitive motion damage and some even believe emotional trauma, the fascia loses its pliability. It becomes tight and restricted. Fascia is one continuous structure that exists from head to toe without interruption, trauma to one area of your fascia can cause dysfunction or pain in another area of the body. Think of it as yarn in a knitted sweater; it can affect the entire sweater.
