When you are considering visiting a chiropractor, you might envision a chiropractic adjustment being the extent of your visit. However, in addition to adjustments, your chiropractor can do so much more to help relieve specific types of pain. One of these tools is soft tissue therapy. This can help with your pain and overall musculoskeletal health. 

What is soft tissue therapy?

Soft tissue therapy is a form of therapy where the soft tissue throughout the body is massaged in order to reduce or relieve pain and inflammation. It can also help prevent further injury and improve circulation. The improved circulation helps encourage healing.

What are the benefits of soft tissue therapy?

There are a handful of benefits to soft tissue therapy such as increasing your ability to move freely with less pain. Other benefits include:

  • Improved mood and sleep – soft tissue damage may reduce your quality of sleep. Poor sleep can cause mood changes and other health problems. Massaging and other soft tissue therapy techniques can help your muscles relax which can improve your sleep.
  • Increased mobility – soft tissue injuries can decrease your mobility over time. Soft tissue therapy can help with this damage and will work to increase your overall mobility and joint functions.
  • Less pain – living with ongoing pain can negatively impact your quality of life. Soft tissue therapy may help eliminate the pain you are feeling in your muscles.
