Soft Tissue Technique
Soft Tissue Technique is successful in effectively treating all soft tissue conditions, whether they are chronic, acute or postsurgical. The Soft Tissue Technique offers many advantages such as the following:
- 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.
Soft Tissue Technique is clinically proven to achieve quicker and better outcomes in treating the following conditions:
- Achilles Tendinosis/itis
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Cervical Sprain/Strain (Neck Pain)
- Lateral Epicondylosis/itis (Tennis Elbow)
- Lumbar Sprain/Strain (Back Pain)
- Patellofemoral Disorders (Knee Pain)
- Rotator Cuff Tendinosis/itis (Shoulder Pain)
- Scar Tissue
- Shin Splints
- Trigger Finger
- Women’s Health (Post-Mastectomy and Caesarean Scarring)
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Why is scar tissue a problem?
A: 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.
Q: Is the treatment painful?
A: It is common to experience minor discomfort during the procedure and some bruising afterward. This is a normal response and part of the healing process.
Q: What is the frequency of treatment?
A: Patients usually receive two treatments per week over 4-5 weeks. Most patients experience positive results by the 3rd to 4th treatment.
Q: Will treatments affect my everyday activities?
A: Most patients are not disabled and continue to perform their regular functions at home or work
Q: What kind of results does Soft Tissue Technique produce?
A: 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.
Q: Is Soft Tissue Technique used alone?
A: 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.
