The term “Soft Tissue” simply refers to anything that is not bone, such as your muscles, ligaments, tendons, nervous system spinal discs and internal organs.

During a whiplash injury the tissues that are affected most are the soft tissues, the muscles, ligaments and discs. In order to minimize permanent impairment and disability, it is important to use therapies that stimulate the soft tissues to heal correctly. These include massage therapy, electro-stimulation, deep friction massage (SASTM), stretching and specific strength and range of motion exercises.
