Soft Tissue Injuries and Chiropractic

Soft tissue injuries involve the muscles, tendons, or ligaments of the body. Because these injuries don’t show up on an X-ray they are often ignored or just treated with pain medication. We understand that these injuries are real and can be debilitating to the body. If they persist without proper treatment it can cause chronic and permanent pain and disability. Chiropractors specialize in treating these injuries so that they heal and are not just covered up with the use of medications.

Treatment can include:

  • Ice
  • Compression
  • Heat
  • Ultrasound
  • Electrical stimulation
  • Stretching
  • Rest
  • Chiropractic Adjustments

In some circumstances when the tissue has been torn surgical intervention may be required. Rapid diagnosis and treatment are essential to complete recovery.
