Along with Adjustment: Chiropractic Modalities for Reducing Pain
Our mission is your wellness
Spinal adjustment is at the core of chiropractic theory and it forms the bulk of the treatments we provide at our office in Fremont. However, spinal adjustment is just one part of our commitment to your wellness; we are trained in a multitude of natural modalities that seek to maximize your well-being by improving the way you move and function. One of these modalities is soft tissue therapy, a common tool used throughout chiropractic and physiotherapy to improve musculoskeletal health, overcome injury and heal effectively.
The healing power of soft tissue therapy
Soft tissues refers generally to the muscles, ligaments and tendons that are at risk for increased tension and pain from factors including: poor posture, acute injuries like sprains and strains, and traumatic injuries. The main goal of soft tissue therapy is to reduce pain and inflammation in problematic regions, while servicing your body in a number of other ways:
- It prevents the likelihood of further injury
- Speeds the recovery from injuries
- Reduces painful muscle spasms
- Boosts circulation
- Improves posture
By using gentle pressure and kneading on injurious regions, we boost local blood flow, increasing the amount of oxygen and nutrients that are available for tissue healing. In the process, soft tissue therapy helps to decrease stiffness and increase the range of motion in a previously inhibited region.
Increasing wellness starts with a proper diagnosis
A proper diagnosis give us the blueprint for treatment. At our office in Fremont, we take you through a full physical assessment to determine the complex network of factors which are contributing to your pain and dysfunction. This allows us to proceed with the most effective mix of natural therapies to get your life out of the grips of pain and back in to the land of well-being.
