The Importance of Soft Tissue Work in Combination with Chiropractic

The combination of chiropractic and deep tissue can aid in injury prevention, management, and recovery.

This combination is elemental to care because the joints actually consist of a total joint complex, which is made up of all of the joints surrounding tissues.  So when one aspect is affected it tends to affect another.  For instance, when the joints in your spine become restricted limiting the joints ranges of motion, there is usually no telling what came first.  Was it that the joint being restricted caused the surrounding muscles to fire up in an attempt to restore that lost motion or vice versa, a muscle imbalance being tighter on one side than the other and now it’s actually affecting the joints ability to move normally?

Chiropractors can adjust you all day, but if they do not treat the surrounding musculature the chances for that restriction re-occurring is far greater.  So by treating both we here at Brown Squared Chiropractic, are making sure that the root of the problem is surely being addressed.  Because of this multidimensional approach you are (a) going to get better faster and (b) stay better longer.

You see, adjusting the spine restores proper alignment and function to the individual spinal joints and surrounding structures.  This not only allows for full range of motion on a greater scale of the entire body, but also restores the normal nerve transmission and healing potential.  On the other hand, the soft tissue therapy administered works to reduce adhesions and trigger points in both the muscle and  fascia, which increases blood flow to the area.  This new blood flow actually allows for any toxins that have built up in the area to be flushed out, bringing in new oxygen and nutrients required for healing.  Now you see how the healing process is therefore accelerated meaning that you get better faster just by aiding the body in its natural processes!  Now you really can get back to doing the things you love!


If you are an athlete this allows you to train again sooner & more efficiently.  Actually a lot of top professional athletes will not only get treated before competition as a “tune-up” in an effort to place their bodies in a state of peak efficiency, but also make sure that they are treated following competition in order to enhance the recuperative process after the stress of their particular event allowing them to get back in the game!
