Most musculoskeletal injuries arise from improper spinal alignment. However, to speed the recovery, muscle spasms must be relieved to prevent further injury. Soft tissue such as muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia need to be assessed for integrity and function. As a chiropractic physician, I am trained in soft tissue evaluation and treatment techniques. Myofascial release and chiropractic massage help reverse the outcome of muscular conditions arising from muscle spasms that are increasing the level of injury. If treated quickly enough after an injury, it can prevent scarring. Old scar tissue needs to also be assessed to see if it is also contributing to the injury.
