Muscle release therapy is used to treat dysfunctional and painful muscles. It involves lengthening the muscle while your chiropractor applies tension to it with their hands. It is a technique used for eliminating pain and restoring motion. At times, your chiropractor may choose to use instrument assisted soft tissue therapy. This involves using a tool made of surgical-grade steel to treat the muscle instead of the clinician's hand. This is a useful adaptation for restricted muscles and tendons, especially when scar tissue is present.
