How Chiropractic Can Help Soft Tissue Issues

man in plaid holding elbowSprains. Strains. Tendonitis. Stress injuries. Bursitis. These are all examples of soft tissue injuries. Often a type of physical trauma will result in injuries to the soft tissues, which are the components that make up the rest of the body around the bone. The soft tissues include muscles, ligaments, tendons, and nerves.

These tissues can be damaged from repetitive problems or traumatically induced injuries, like a fall, sports injury or auto accident. Work-related situations sometimes cause injuries to the soft tissues.

Getting to the Root Cause

The best way to have soft tissue analyzed and diagnosed is to see a chiropractor who can do orthopedic, neurological and chiropractic testing in those areas to decide what is the cause and the issue involving the soft issue.

“Sometimes, if it’s a joint issue, the osseous component of the joint may not be perfectly situated in the joint, and that can cause interruption and irritation to the soft tissue around those joints,” said Dr. Brown.

As a chiropractor, Dr. Brown can diagnose a problem joint and correct that issue so that the bones are articulating properly, and that will take the pressure off the nerves, muscles, ligaments and tendons that have injured in that joint area.

Therapeutic Modalities Available

At Brown Chiropractic Center, we offer several modalities that can effectively address soft tissue injuries:

High voltage galvanism – Using a faradic current, this therapy penetrates deep into tissues to help them relax. This modality also reduces inflammation and irritation, and increases healing to that area.

Ultrasound - This therapy puts ultrasonic waves into the tissue, which increases the nutrients and blood flow, relaxes the tissue and helps it heal quicker.

Cold laser – Also known as low level laser therapy, cold laser works specifically on muscles, ligaments and tendons in the nerves to help them relax and heal faster.

If you have a soft tissue injury, we want to provide the healing help you need. Contact Brown Chiropractic Center today to book an appointment with Dr. Brown, your Greenville chiropractor for over 3 decades!
