Soft Tissue Therapy

For treatment of repetitive strain, traumatic injuries, whiplash & scar tissue. Treatments include myofascial release, ultrasound therapy & muscle stimulation.

When would you need soft tissue therapy? These techniques are designed to help people recover from muscle, fascia, ligament, tendon, nerve and other soft tissue injuries. STT is offered in our clinics by chiropractors, physical therapists, physical therapy assistants and massage therapists. We use STT to treat repetitive strain, cumulative strain, postural strain, traumatic, work, and whiplash type injuries, and it is also an effective treatment for myofascial adhesions, myofascial pain, scar tissue and post-surgical scar tissue.

Treatment Options:

Specific soft tissue techniques and length of recovery will be based on when injury occurred, extent of injury, level of pain and any complicating factors.

Myofascial Release Techniques

  • Massage Therapy
  • Cross-Friction Massage
  • Ischemic Compression (Sustained Pressure)
  • Trigger Point Therapy
  • Graston Technique®

Stretching:

  • Active and Static Stretching
  • Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF) Stretching

Corrective Exercise:

Dysfunctional soft tissues are either too short and tight or too long and weak. Based on our health assessment, you may be prescribed corrective exercises that will strengthen specific muscle groups and improve motor control.

Physiotherapies:

  • Interferential Therapy (IFC)
  • Electric Muscle Stimulation (EMS)
  • Iontophoresis
  • Ultrasound Therapy (US)
  • Low Level Light Therapy (LLLT)
  • Moist heat

Taping:

We often use therapeutic taping or strapping techniques to relieve pressure on swollen and injured soft tissue, to alter muscle-firing patterns or to provide support to aid healing. These techniques are designed to promote lymphatic fluid drainage and to speed up the body’s natural healing process. We are also certified in Kinesio Taping. Please see the services section to learn more about this technique. To make an appointment, call (920) 738-0200 (Appleton) or (920) 720-0660 (Neenah).
