Soft Tissue Technique

Chiropractor Plainfield IL Absolute Integrated Health SC graston technique

Soft Tissue Technique is successful in effectively treating all soft tissue conditions, whether they are chronic or acute and postsurgical. The Soft Tissue Technique offers many advantages such as:

  • Decreases overall time of treatment
  • Fosters faster rehabilitation/recovery
  • Reduces need for anti-inflammatory medication
  • Resolves chronic conditions thought to be permanent

Soft Tissue Technique is an innovative, patented form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables clinicians to effectively break down scar tissue and fascial restrictions. The technique utilizes specially designed instruments to specifically detect and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation.


Frequently Asked Questions

Why is scar tissue a problem?
Scar tissue limits range of motion, and in many instances causes pain, which prevents the patient from functioning as he or she did before the injury.

Is the treatment painful?
It is common to experience minor discomfort during the procedure and some bruising afterwards. This is a normal response and part of the healing process.

What is the frequency of treatment?
Patients usually receive two treatments per week over 4-5 weeks. Most patients have a positive response by the 3rd to 4th treatment.

Will treatments affect my everyday activities?
Most patients are not disabled and continue to perform their regular functions at home or work

What kind of results does Soft Tissue Technique produce?
Historically, the Soft Tissue Technique has had positive outcomes in 75–90 percent of all conditions treated. It is equally effective in restoring function to acute and chronic injuries, and pre- and postsurgical patients.

Is Soft Tissue Technique used alone?
No the Soft Tissue Technique protocol is the same. Our protocol includes a brief warm-up of the area followed by icing the area worked on.
