Alignment Therapy Treatments:
Trauma and surgery can often go together simultaneously. Trauma is a physical wound or injury. Surgery uses an operative manual approach with instrumental techniques to investigate and/or treat a pathological condition, such as disease or injury, to help improve bodily function or appearance.
The recovery from trauma and surgery is determined by the patient/client. Clients wary of pain killers use Alignment Therapy as a way to increase soft tissue healing time. When the body injures, the physiological response is to lay down scar tissue to create a “webbing” or splinting of the area to avoid further movement or injury. Once the body is out of the acute phase of healing (inflammation and swelling) therapists begin to manipulate the scar tissue to keep it healthy and begin increasing the tissues range of motion. Tissue rehabilitation such as this depends on health, age and client commitment to recovery.
