When any of these critical body components are damaged, the recovery time can be long and painful. At Arch Medical Group, we deliver treatments to trigger faster healing in soft tissue injuries.

What are soft tissue injuries?

Soft tissue injuries can occur due to various types of physical actions, including overuse, trauma, fatigue, inadequate warm-up or stretching before workouts, runs, or sports, aging, an accident, or some medical conditions. The various types of soft tissue injuries include:

  • Strains: This occurs when a muscle or tendon is stretched or torn due to overuse or trauma.
  • Sprains: This occurs when a ligament is stretched or torn due to sudden twisting or impact.
  • Contusions: This occurs when a muscle or other soft tissue is bruised due to direct impact.
  • Tendinitis: This is an inflammation of a tendon due to overuse or repetitive strain.
  • Bursitis: This is an inflammation of a bursa, which is a fluid-filled sac that cushions a joint.
  • Dislocation: This injury occurs when a bone is forced out of its normal position in a joint, injuring the soft tissues holding the joint in place.

Slow healing injuries

After a soft tissue injury, the recovery time could be extended due to:

  • Inadequate rest: Soft tissue injuries require proper rest to heal. If the injured area is not given enough time to rest, it can delay the healing process.
  • Poor nutrition: The body needs proper nutrition to heal soft tissue injuries. A lack of essential vitamins and minerals can slow down the healing process.
  • Re-injury: Re-injuring the same area can cause further damage and delay the healing process.
  • Infection: If the injury becomes infected, it can cause inflammation and delay the healing process.
  • Chronic inflammation: Chronic inflammation can occur if the injury is not properly treated, which can lead to long-term damage and a delay in healing.
  • Underlying health conditions: Certain underlying health conditions, such as diabetes or autoimmune disorders, can slow down the healing process.

Arch Medical Group: Treatments for soft tissue injuries

At Arch Medical Group, we take a whole-body approach to treating our patients. Soft tissue injuries can be extremely painful or debilitating. Fast healing to restore function requires a full understanding of the overall health condition of the patient. Our advanced treatments can help speed healing and restore a better state of overall health. The treatments we may administer to resolve soft tissue injuries include:

  • Pulse wave therapy: Pulse wave therapy is a non-invasive treatment that uses sound waves to stimulate blood flow and promote healing in damaged tissues.
  • Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (PEMF): PEMF therapy USES low-frequency electromagnetic waves to stimulate cell regeneration and reduce inflammation.
  • Spinal decompression: Spinal decompression is a technique that uses traction to relieve pressure on the spinal discs to allow healthy nerve function and improved blood flow.
  • Red light therapy: This treatment uses light waves to stimulate the production of collagen and promote tissue repair in soft tissue injuries
  • IV therapy: These treatments deliver nutrients and vitamins directly into the bloodstream for faster healing.
  • PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma): PRP involves injecting concentrated platelets into the injured area to promote tissue regeneration and speed natural healing.

Our alternative therapies can significantly alleviate the symptoms of soft tissue injuries and promote faster healing times, along with improving overall body health.
