Soft Tissue Treatments


Dr. Schmoe utilizes many techniques to treat the muscles, tendons, fascia, and ligaments that help hold our skeleton together. These soft tissues can be the cause of pain, numbness, weakness, instability, and can lead to recurring subluxations. Subluxations are when a joint is either misaligned or is restricted from its normal range of motion.

Dr. Schmoe believes that if those soft tissues involved with your injury are treated and restored to a healthier state, the subluxations of your joints (spinal and extraspinal) will hold longer and give you less problems in the future.

When one suffers an injury or repetitive stress, your body responds by creating inflammation. A natural response of this inflammation is the creation of scar tissue. Scar tissue is made by the body to help brace the area of injury. However, if too much scar tissue is present it will prevent normal range of motion and cause muscle imbalances.

In addition to trigger point therapy, specific stretching and strengthening, Dr. Schmoe uses an instrument assisted technique to treat acute and chronic soft tissue conditions and injuries. This soft tissue mobilization technique takes advantage of specially designed tools that aid in breaking up scar tissue and related myofascial adhesions. This technique offers many advantages and benefits.
