Types of Soft Tissue Therapies Offered
At Dunwoody Chiropractic Center, we offer a variety of soft tissue therapies to relieve your chronic pain. These therapies include:
Myofascial Release Therapy
Myofascial release therapy is a type of soft tissue therapy that focuses on releasing restrictions in the fascia, or connective tissue, to alleviate pain. It is often used to treat conditions like fibromyalgia, headaches, TMJ disorders, and more.
One of the most popular techniques used in myofascial release therapy is called cross-fiber friction massage. This technique involves applying deep pressure perpendicular to the direction of the fibers in the fascia to break up any restrictions or adhesions that may be present.
Trigger Point Therapy
Trigger points are areas of muscle tension that can create pain in other areas of the body. For example, a trigger point in your shoulder might cause referred pain down your arm into your hand. To release a trigger point, the therapist will apply pressure to the muscle until the trigger point is released.
Massage therapy is a popular treatment for chronic pain. Massage can help relax the muscles, increase your range of motion, and reduce inflammation. There are many different types of massage, including Swedish massage, deep tissue massage, trigger point massage, and more. Your therapist will work with you to determine the best type of massage for your needs.
Chiropractic care is a drug-free, hands-on approach to healthcare that includes diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of conditions that are caused by mechanical dysfunction of the joints and spine. Chiropractic care can be an effective treatment for chronic back pain and neck pain. Dr. Patel will work with you to develop a treatment plan that may include spinal manipulation, massage, trigger point therapy, exercises, and more.
