Have you suffered an injury that affects the muscles, bursae, or other soft tissues? You could be a good candidate for our soft tissue treatment program, which takes an all-natural approach to relieving injury symptoms and helping patients get back on their feet.
Our friendly, professional team can provide you with a Daytona Beach soft tissue treatment regimen designed specifically for your body. We would take careful steps to diagnose your injury and come up with the right course of treatment.
Treating Soft Tissue Injuries, the Natural Way
Anti-Aging & Regenerative Associates offers several services as part of our Daytona Beach soft tissue treatment plan, including:
- The initial evaluation: At your first appointment, we want to know everything about your injury. How and when did it happen? What symptoms are you experiencing? Have your symptoms changed over time?
- Diagnostic testing: We cannot provide the right treatment until we know exactly what kind of injury you sustained. To diagnose you, we might order certain tests, such as an AO scan, and review the information you provided us during the evaluation.
- Physiotherapy: Physiotherapy involves recommending and guiding you through exercises and stretches designed to strengthen the injured area. You can expect to rebuild muscle and flexibility while minimizing painful, inconvenient symptoms.
- Massage: As part of our soft tissue mobilization plan, we can use massage therapy to help you feel better and promote healing at the injury site.
- Lifestyle changes: Sometimes, when the patient’s lifestyle contributes to their injury (e.g., in the case of repetitive stress injuries), we can help them make alterations to activity levels or diet that improve their health.
- Treatment monitoring: Our providers will keep a very close eye on you throughout treatment. If something is not working or a particular treatment has done all it can for you, we will tell you and advise you about the next steps.
No two patients—or two injuries—are alike. At Anti-Aging & Regenerative Associates, our goal is to create a treatment regimen for each patient. We do not rely on a “one-size-fits-all” approach to healthcare. You can depend on us to:
- Treat you in a clean and welcoming facility
- Listen attentively as you tell us about your injury and expectations for treatment
- Answer your questions and help you manage treatment expectations
- Treat you with the kindness and respect that every patient deserves
Results of Soft Tissue Treatment
The prognosis of soft tissue injuries is often quite good: with proper rest and treatment, many patients recover total use of the injured area and go on to live full and healthy lives.
When soft tissue injuries are more serious, patients may require longer, more intensive treatments, and they may not regain the flexibility or range of motion they enjoyed previously. They can, however, still benefit from treatments designed to help them recover at least part of their flexibility and minimize pain.
As part of the diagnostic process, we can come up with a tentative prognosis for your situation. This includes telling you:
- How long you may need to keep coming to us for treatment
- What results you can expect from treatment
- What may happen when you reach maximum medical improvement (i.e., the point at which treatment has done all it can and you no longer make progress)
Soft Tissue Treatment and Surgery
In rare cases, surgery is unavoidable after a soft tissue injury. For example, maybe your injury is very severe, or you suffered another type of injury (e.g., a spine injury) in addition to the soft tissue injury.
If this is the case for you, Anti-Aging & Regenerative Associates can still help. Our treatment options can speed your recovery following a surgical procedure by:
- Minimizing scar tissue
- Increasing flexibility and range of motion
- Reducing pain so you can get back on your feet sooner

What Is a Soft Tissue Injury?
As Johns Hopkins Medicine explains, there are many kinds of soft tissue injuries. Some happen when a person places repetitive stress on a particular area. For example:
- Bursitis can occur if you overuse the shoulder, knee, elbow, or other joint.
- Tendonitis tends to afflict athletes who place great stress on a particular joint (e.g., “tennis elbow”).
- Carpal tunnel syndrome, according to Cleveland Clinic, may occur if you place stress on the tendons or ligaments in your wrist.
- Stress fractures, as the name implies, are bone injuries that may occur after excessive physical activity involving the lower extremities.
- Muscle strains often result from overuse of any muscle (e.g., if you constantly twist and turn your back muscles while at work).
Others, like those listed below, can result from acute trauma, like an accident:
- Contusions: More commonly called a bruise, contusions may fade away on their own, or they may be painful enough to require professional intervention.
- Strains: This is a muscle and/or tendon injury that can make it hard for you to move or flex.
- Sprains: Unlike a strain, a sprain affects the ligament. An abrupt “wrench or twist” to a delicate joint, such as the knees, may cause a sprain.
- Bursitis: A bursa is a “cushion” that helps your joints work smoothly. In addition to being vulnerable to repetitive stress injuries, bursae could become inflamed after an accident, leading to pain and stiffness.
What Causes Soft Tissue Injuries?
Any sort of traumatic impact could cause a soft tissue injury, including impacts from:
- Sports: Many sports, such as football and soccer, involve rough contact between players.
- Falls: Falling from a ladder or down the stairs can cause serious, even life-threatening injuries.
- Motor vehicle accidents: Collisions between cars, trucks, motorcycles, and other vehicles are violent events that often leave survivors with painful injuries.
No matter how your soft tissue injury happened, we can devise a treatment plan for you. We would account for how your injury happened (overuse vs. acute injury) to help us decide on the best treatment options for you.
