Soft Tissue Therapy at Sòlas Rejuvenation + Wellness in Coronado, CA, San Diego, CA, and Poway, CA
Did you know? Improving flexibility of soft tissue helps restore balance within the body. Injuries to soft tissue in the body, such as strains and sprains, are common and can occur through various activities and sports, automobile accidents (whiplash), and slip and falls. Neck strains from hunching over computer monitors or phones can also result in soft tissue damage.
Regenerative Therapy specialists can apply gentle pressure to the affected tissue with ergonomic tools and massage techniques to manipulate the various cells surrounding and supporting the body’s internal organs and skeletal system to relieve soft tissue injuries.
What is Soft Tissue and How does it Become Injured?
Soft tissue can be found everywhere in the body: blood vessels, cartilage, fat, ligaments, muscles, nerves, skin, membranes that line the inside of a joint capsule, and tendons. Beneath the skin, connective tissue (fascia) made primarily of collagen separates muscles and internal organs or supports blood vessels, bones, and nerves.
Muscles operate by tensing, contracting, and relaxing. Inflammation results from repeated injury to soft tissue, and scar tissue can develop. If scar tissue forms, the range of motion is limited. When this occurs and muscles do not completely relax, injuries result in pain, weakness, restricted range of motion, skeletal system misalignment, and predisposes a person to reinjury.
Types of Soft Tissue Injuries
Common soft tissue injuries include bursitis, contusions, stress injuries, and tendonitis.
Upper extremity soft tissue injuries can include contractures in the skin, the tissues underneath the skin, and the muscles, tendons, and ligaments surrounding a joint. These conditions include carpal tunnel syndrome, golf elbow, tennis elbow, and tendinitis of biceps or rotator cuffs.
Soft tissue injuries within the lower extremity can range from ankle or knee sprains, bursitis, heel or knee tendinitis, hip pain, plantar fasciitis, quadricep tendon strains or tears, and shin splints.
Soft tissue therapy restores balance within the body by relaxing muscle tension, reducing scar tissue, and stretching or lengthening the fascia.
While the first line of treatment for soft tissue injuries is almost always first aid (rest, ice, compression, elevation), additional therapy is recommended if the soft tissue injury is persistent.
