Soft Tissue Treatment

Soft tissues include ligaments, tendons, muscles and fascia.

Dr. Abbate believes proper soft tissue treatment is essential to maintaining the benefits of chiropractic adjustments, long-term longevity and peak physical performance. He utilizes a variety of soft tissue techniques to accomplish this and can range from light stretching to manual pressure. These techniques include Post-Isometric Relaxation (PIR), muscle release techniques, and instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization.

Soft tissue treatment involves direct physical action on the muscle and other soft tissues of your body. Soft tissue techniques such as massage targets your muscles, tendons, ligaments, or other connective tissues such as fascia. Massage is the best known example of a soft tissue technique.

A soft tissue massage includes a whole range of massage depths, pressures, and duration. We understand what techniques are right for your body at any given time. Your soft tissue massage aims to alleviate aches, pains and injuries that are attributed to your body’s soft tissues.

Dr Frank takes the time to get to know you and all your issues. Very through and professional in his assessment. I’ve been going to chiropractors for 27 years and he really goes above and beyond compared to the dozen or so I’ve seen in my lifetime. If you’re looking for more than an in an out adjustment… to get to the route of your issues, give Dr Frank Abate a call!

I've been seeing Dr Frank for the past few months for help with soreness and discomfort in my neck and back. I have Hypermobile Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (hEDS) which affects the collagen in the body and leads to extra stretchy tendons and ligaments... Which leads to lots of muscle tension and tightness, along with subluxations of various body parts, tendons popping into the wrong places, injuries that never really heal, and a lot of back pain.

I highly recommend Back In Action Chiropractic for anyone dealing with injuries or chronic pain. Dr. Frank has helped me so much with issues with my neck and lower back that I thought I just had to live with - but for the most part, I am pain free now! He does a very thorough assessment, does soft tissue work and adjustments, and really gets to know his patients to provide the highest level of care. It’s always a good experience going to see Dr. Frank - he’s a great chiropractor and an awesome person too!

Frank is awesome! I would highly recommend to anyone. As an athlete, he got me back into my sport within two weeks with just a couple visits and some at home stretching. As a first timer, he was very good at explaining what was going on and what we were doing. Very smart, cleanly, and kind, thank you Frank!

Frank is outstanding! Extremely patient, great listener, remarkably intuitive, understanding, kind and most of all effective. Every exercise he gave me had value, every motion was a step forward and every visit was time well spent. Very highly recommended!!!

Frank is knowledgeable, professional, clean & makes his patients feel comfortable. He has extensive knowledge of different stretches and movements that can be done at home to relieve pain and has not only helped me with neck/back issues, but I also my father, whom I referred over to Frank for Siatic nerve pain issues, and it's completely improved his ailments as well.

Highly recommend Abbate Chiropractic!
