What Are Soft Tissues & Soft Tissue Care?

Columbia SC Chiropractor, Dr. Charles Renick, explains. The soft tissues of the body include muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, nerves, discs, and other connective tissue. "State of the art" soft tissue care is the manual release of dysfunctioning tissues restoring proper motion and tissue texture. The soft tissues provide important support and motion to all the joints in the body including the spine. If the tissues are not properly functioning or supporting the joints or spine, the joints, spine, and the body will not move or function properly. If the soft tissues are not supporting properly, then chiropractic adjustments will not hold effectively.

Care For The Entire Body

Columbia SC chiropractor, Dr. Charles Renick, receives referrals from physicians, chiropractors, physical therapists, nurses, massage therapists, athletic coaches, and fitness trainers. Renick Chiropractic & Soft Tissue Clinic offers comprehensive chiropractic care, as well as state-of-the-art soft tissue care uniquely addressing conditions affecting muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, and nerves. We also provide running gait analysis, rock tape, 3D laser body view foot scan, and antioxidant scan along with nutrition counseling.

Our team at Renick Chiropractic & Soft Tissue Clinic evaluates and treats the entire body including all joints and soft tissues - muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. If your muscles or other soft tissues are not supporting your joints including your spine, your joints cannot function or recover properly.
