Clinical Manual Therapy
As a result of accidents or the daily physical and emotional stresses of life many people suffer from injury to the soft tissues of their body. The soft tissues are the muscles, tendons, ligaments, and other tissues that are not bones. This is the tissue that holds you together and moves you around. It is the muscles that cramp and spasm in pain, not bones. In fact, bones don’t hurt unless they are broken, infected, or malignant. Soft tissue is the most common source of chronic pain, and is virtually ignored and untreated by conventional medicine.
Your best therapy for musculoskeletal conditions is clinical massage therapy because no other form of therapy is as detailed in addressing musculoskeletal degeneration or assisting your recovery from an accident. Clinical massage therapy, therapeutic exercises, and the use of gentle rehabilitation modalities like therapeutic heat, cold, hydrotherapy, and percussion devices combine to create an effective treatment program. Clinical massage therapy is your natural alternative and works to assist your chiropractic and medical physician in their role in helping you get better. Clinical massage therapy, chiropractic, and medical care can work together for you and your musculoskeletal good health.
