While chiropractic care focuses on the joints of the spine and extremities, soft tissue therapy focuses on the muscles, ligaments, and tendons.
When joints become fixated and aren’t moving as they should, the soft tissues can tighten to “guard” the area or react in other ways that cause pain, stiffness, and lack of proper mobility.
At The Chiro Lab, we combine our chiropractic adjustments with appropriate soft tissue therapies to help you achieve your optimal results.
Our chiropractor, Bentley Woon, has additional training in holistic care including movement and rehabilitation. He will design a custom care plan for you to address your specific condition and symptoms and to help you get back to moving freely and doing the things you enjoy doing.
We offer a variety of soft tissue therapies, as well as rehabilitative exercises. Our therapies include:
Myofascial Release: Stiff, fixed myofascial tissue (the membranes that wrap and connect your muscles) may result in pain in other areas of the body.
We locate these areas that aren’t as elastic as they should be and use manual pressure and stretching to loosen the tissue and restore freer movement. This may also result in reduced pain.
Post-Isometric Relaxation (PIR): In order to lengthen tight muscles, we use this technique to stretch the muscle without triggering it to contract and tighten further. It is particularly beneficial in restoring flexibility in postural muscles.
Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF): This therapy involves stretching and contracting the targeted muscles, with the goal of achieving maximum flexibility and optimising your range of motion.
Based on your condition and his findings in your thorough examination, Bentley will determine which technique can benefit you the most—he may combine multiple therapies. These will always be done in a way that is appropriate for your condition.
Athletes looking to improve performance may receive more forceful therapy, while seniors or people with injuries will typically receive gentler care. Your comfort and results are paramount for us, and we will always tailor care to your specific needs.
