Why is it critical?
Soft tissue work is a critical part of the work we perform. Soft tissue therapy is aimed at restoring appropriate muscle tone. Stiff or tense muscles can cause localized pain anywhere in the body. The locations we most commonly see are back, neck, headaches, and knee. The focus of chiropractic is the adjustment, but bones are controlled by muscles. This is why we evaluate muscle tone and strength to identify imbalances. Any imbalance can create a number of issues ranging from trigger points to muscle spasms. If these are not taken care of it can lead to pain or injuries. Muscle imbalance predisposes you to muscle strains or joint sprains.
