Decreasing Pain and Improving Mobility
Overuse injuries occur to the soft tissue in many different ways, including acute pulls, tears, collisions, and even maintaining prolonged positions like sitting at a desk all day.
All of these can lead to lack of oxygen in the involved structures. In response to this lack of oxygen, the body will produce a dense, fibrotic (scar-like) tissue known as adhesion to form over the affected areas.
When adhesion builds up on soft tissues, it impedes motion and reduces functionality, often causing a lot of pain. Treating this problematic soft tissue involves breaking down the adhesion that has built up. This improves not only the function but also the load bearing of the area. Integrative Diagnosis focuses on the soft tissues of the body to remove that adhesion. ID Treatment involves both Manual Adhesion Release and Instrument Adhesion Release, which are soft tissue and movement based techniques using the hands or an instrument. These techniques break down adhesion build up on soft tissues which reduces pain and improves function.
If you are experiencing chronic pain or suffering from reduced mobility, schedule a consult with us and let us help you break through that adhesion to increase your function and improve your health!
