About Soft Tissue Therapy (Clinical Massage)
INTRODUCTION TO soft tissue therapy
Soft tissue therapy is essentially targeted massage. Your chiropractor will identify which muscles are holding unwanted tension and therefore contributing to your symptoms. They will then use focused pressure and massage techniques to relieve the muscular tension often associated with the misalignment of joints.
Performing soft tissue therapy prior to the manipulation is key and something we believe in strongly at Cedar Tree Chiropractic. Tight muscles can make a joint manipulation a little uncomfortable, and if ignored can prevent the joint from returning back to its desired position. We believe that the use of soft tissue therapy returns you back to health in a more comfortable and effective way.
