Soft Tissue Rehabilitation

Soft Tissue Rehabilitation is one of the more common tasks taken on by chiropractors. A person engaged in physical activity at work or play is the one who is seeking the help of soft tissue rehabilitation. However it is common for the average person to sprain an ankle while walking from one room to another.

What is a Soft Tissue Injury?

When you take part in physical fitness activities, sports or have a strenuous job, you are more likely to injure the soft tissues of your body. Even simple everyday activities can damage these ligaments, tendons, and muscles.

The most common soft-tissue injuries experienced include:

  • sprains
  • strains
  • contusions
  • tendonitis
  • bursitis
  • stress injuries

All it takes is a single episode, such as a fall, a sudden twist of the ankle, or a hit to the body to develop soft tissue pain. However it is also likely repeated overuse, such as repetitive motion at work, poor ergonomics or ongoing athletic activities. This slowly developing pain adds small amounts of stress on the body at a steady pace.
