Soft Tissue Technique
Logan's Soft Tissue Technique begins with a lecture review of numerous soft tissue approaches that are available to today's DCs. After the lecture, the remainder of the course focuses on practice and application of two major soft tissue methods, Myofascial Release and Positional Release. Students learn to utilize these techniques with all muscle groups in the body.
Myofascial Release focuses on stretching affected muscles. Certain injuries, such as strains and sprains, involve muscles that already are over-stretched. In such situations, an appropriate method would be Positional Release, which involves addressing trigger points and placing muscle fibers in a position that is more comfortable for the patient. Injuries and scar tissue tend to cause distortions to muscle fiber, which contribute to the patient's discomfort.
