At Manus Health, we have many years of experience in treating acute and chronic sports or soft tissue injuries. We are able to help with shoulder, elbow, wrist, knee, and ankle injuries. Many patients are told by their primary Doctor that they should not run or should not play soft ball. We hear this almost on a daily basis. In many cases, our patient will not only run or play, they will able to compete and at the level they did before the injury. Soft tissue injuries are unique in that they are “soft”. Soft things can be changed or corrected.
Treatment: treatment will include soft tissue work with the muscle and surrounding fascia. This will at times be painful, but the resulting increase in motion and decrease in pain will be worth it. Chronic injuries may take weeks to completely heal so plan on coming to the office up to 3 times per week.
Supplements and taping (Kinesio Taping) may also be done to promote healing.
