What is Chiropractic Manual Soft Tissue Therapy?

Chiropractic manual soft tissue therapy (CMSTT) is a hands-on approach to treating soft tissue injuries, such as muscle strains, sprains, and other soft tissue injuries. This form of therapy is used by chiropractors to relieve pain and improve the function of the musculoskeletal system. CMSTT involves applying pressure and manipulation to the soft tissues, including muscles, tendons, ligaments, and fascia.

The goal of CMSTT is to reduce pain and inflammation in the soft tissues, as well as to improve circulation and promote healing. The technique is non-invasive and is typically performed using the hands, although sometimes special instruments may also be used, such as the activator.

Chiropractors who use CMSTT typically work with patients who have musculoskeletal injuries or conditions, including back pain, neck pain, and headaches. The therapy is also used to treat sports injuries, such as muscle strains and sprains. CMSTT can be used in conjunction with other chiropractic treatments, such as spinal adjustments, to provide a more comprehensive approach to pain relief and injury recovery.

One of the benefits of CMSTT is that it is a natural and non-invasive treatment that can be used to manage pain and promote healing without the use of medication or surgery. Additionally, CMSTT can be personalized to the individual needs of the patient. Chiropractors who use CMSTT can tailor the therapy to the patient’s specific condition, including the location and severity of the injury, as well as the patient’s medical history and preferences.

The technique involves applying pressure and manipulation to the soft tissues to reduce inflammation, improve circulation, and promote healing. CMSTT can be used alone or in conjunction with other chiropractic treatments, providing a natural and non-invasive approach to pain relief and injury recovery.

A: Bring your insurance information in with you when you come in for your appointment. There is no charge for you for the consultation to talk to the doctor about your condition. We accept Medicare, Medicaid, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Aetna, United Health Care, and Self Pay.
A: The Activator Adjusting Instrument is a hand-held, spring-loaded device that delivers fast, precise adjustments in order to restore range of motion to the vertebrae and extremity joints.
A: Traditional spinal manipulation is performed with our chiropractor’s hands. During the adjustment, a quick, firm thrust will be used to realign the joint. While this is perfectly safe, the adjusted area is much larger with a traditional adjustment than with an Activator adjustment. The Activator delivers a direct and precise adjustment that does not require any twisting or pulling. Individuals typically find the activator method less physically and mentally stressful because there are not as many pops or cracks associated with the adjustment, and the speed of the device means that the muscles do not have time to tense against the force.
A: Everyone is unique and we can give you more idea once we have assessed your case. Some patients experience almost instant relief. Others discover it can take many weeks or months. Many factors can affect the healing process.
