If you have been feeling out of sorts, or if you have been suffering from chronic pain, you need to know that you don't need to deal with your pain alone. At Optimal Health Chiropractic and Massage we offer an array of services that will help you heal, feel more relaxed, and even improve your overall health. One of our services is soft tissue manipulation. This therapy is highly effective when performed by a professional with medical experience and knowledge of the inner workings of the body. Soft tissue manipulation does so much more than just make one area feel better in the moment.
What Is Soft Tissue Manipulation?
Soft tissue manipulation is, as the name indicates, the expert manipulation of the soft tissues. Soft tissues are muscles, ligaments, tendons, and nerves. Expert manipulation of these areas can make a person feel much better both during the treatments and afterward as the body's healing response is activated by the procedure. There are many psychical and mental benefits of this therapy. Circulation in the area will improve from session number one, which reduces inflammation as a result. Improved mental outlook is often reported as the therapy feels like a relaxing massage that focuses on problematic areas.
What Conditions Are Treated with Soft Tissue Manipulation?
Conditions that have been treated with soft tissue manipulation include headaches, muscle tension, muscular injuries, acute pain, chronic pain, fatigue, anxiety, depression, and even high blood pressure. This therapy is highly effective with done by a professional who understands the anatomy of the area being massaged. Many conditions can be improved by soft tissue manipulation, so be sure to discuss your options with the chiropractor.
