Howard County Chiropractic… Your Soft Tissue Injury Specialists

Dear [CustomerFirstName],

We are excited to share that we are now offering the Graston Technique® as part of our soft tissue treatment arsenal, here at HowardCounty Chirpractic. This cutting edge technique, and the other soft tissue treatment techiniques outlined below, allow us to remain Howard County's leader in the treatment of musculoskeletal injuries.

If you suffer from a soft tissue injury and are looking to learn more about your treatment options, check out the descriptions below.

Graston Technique®
Graston TechniqueGraston Technique®is an innovative, patented form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables clinicians to effectively break down scar tissue and fascial restrictions. The technique utilizes specially designed stainless steel instruments to specifically detect and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation. The benefits of Graston include:

  • Decreases overall time of treatment
  • Fosters faster rehabilitation/recovery
  • Reduces need for anti-inflammatory medication
  • Resolves chronic conditions thought to be permanent

Cold Laser Therapy
Cold Laser TherapyLow Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is the use of therapeutic (or cold) laser light to provide relief from pain, eliminate inflammation (swelling) or to repair damaged tissues. LLLT is entirely non-invasive and has a wide range of applications for musculoskeletal conditions. Cold laser therapy uses low intensity laser light energy to stimulate cells through a number of known cellular pathways in order to encourage tissue healing. The benefits of LLLT include:

  • Drug free, non-toxic and non-invasive
  • Extremely safe and virtually painless
  • Easy to apply with no side effects
  • Cost effective for practitioner and patient
  • Highly effective for patient (>90% efficacy)

Integrated Myofascial Release
Myofascial releaseMyofascial release is an amazing form of soft tissue therapy that addresses tense, tight, overused and stressed muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia. To fully understand Myofascial release, it is important to understand what myofascia is…

Myofascia is a connective tissue system which gives our bodies shape and form, sort of like a strong support stocking under our skin. It covers the entire body from head to foot without interruption. This dynamic 3D ‘connective’ tissue system surrounds, protects and connects every tissue, muscle, bone, ligament and organ in the body. Every single move we make engages the fascia. When healthy, the fascia is pliable and relaxed, providing protection and shock absorbency, giving us the ability to move comfortably without pain or restriction. Unfortunately, repetitive strain, injury, emotional trauma, surgery or infection can cause the fascia to harden in order to protect us from further damage. Dense, solid fascia can put considerable pressure on underlying structures, compressing nerves and blood vessels which cause further tension and pain at the point of restriction and much further beyond.

Myofascial Release can help by releasing restricted fascia and associated trigger as well as reducing muscle tension, realigning scar tissue, increasing joint mobility and flexibility and providing a sense of calm and deep relaxation.

Message TherapyMessage Therapy
Message therapy, which involves the manipulation of superficial and deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue, has been used for many years to treat soft tissue disorders and well as aid in the healing process, decrease muscle reflex activity, inhibit motor-neuron excitability, and promote relaxation and well being.

Our office offers various types of massage therapy in order to meet all of our patient's individual needs. Techniques include the standard Swedish and Deep Tissue as well as various specialized techniques. We have three, licensed therapist on staff who are available for sessions five days a week. 15, 20, 45, and 60 minute sessions are available, making message therapy a convenient and affordable option for many suffering from soft tissue trauma.
