About 5 million Americans suffer motor vehicle accidents and sports injuries every year. These incidents commonly result in soft tissue injuries. If you've been in a motor vehicle accident or suffered a sports injury, and you continue to experience pain and discomfort and loss of range of motion, you may have suffered a soft tissue injury. At 39 Chiro in Millersburg and Fredericksburg, we provide quality and effective soft tissue pain and injury treatment for our patients.
What is a Soft Tissue Injury?
As opposed to injuries to bones and joints, soft tissue injuries ordinarily involve muscles, tendons, ligaments, and nerves. These might include muscle strains from overuse or stretching, sprains involving microscopic tears to ligaments, contusions caused by blunt force trauma, tendonitis involving an inflamed tendon, or bursitis involving inflamed bursa which is a common overuse injury. Even whiplash resulting from one or more impacts in a motor vehicle accident is a form of soft tissue injury.
Chiropractic Care for Soft Tissues Injuries
Depending on the nature and extent of the soft tissue injury, it can take between weeks or months to heal. They can even get worse if left untreated. That's why it's important to seek chiropractic care and treatment as soon as possible after suffering any soft tissue injury.
We care for soft tissue injuries in a variety of ways. Some of those treatment modalities include physiotherapy, chiropractic massage, chiropractic adjustments, electronic muscle stimulation, deep tissue ultrasound, and trigger point therapy. All of these treatment modalities are intended to reduce pain and restore range of motion and mobility by restoring blood flow to affected areas and supplying injured tissue with vital oxygen and nutrients. Chiropractic adjustments performed will vary depending on the cause, location, and severity of your pain and immobility.
