When soft tissues such as muscles, tendons and ligaments are injured, the body often responds by forming scar tissue. Even if you haven't experienced traumatic injury, repetitive stress and chronic tension or tightness can lead to scar tissue. This can restrict joint motion and lead to painful compression of surrounding nerves and blood vessels. Our care incorporates treating the entire body; not just the spine, but extremity joints, muscles, nerves, fascia and other soft tissue structures.
