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.
