The most common reason is myofascial adhesion and fibrosis (scar tissue). Many individuals with soft tissue injuries will describe a sensation of a dull/achy pain, something pulling, tight or catching within the affected area. They have a perception that the area just isn't working right, or that there is a feeling of "weakness" in there. What they are experiencing is a buildup of scar-tissue or adhesions.
Adhesions anywhere in the muscles, tendons or ligaments can result in imbalance, breakdown and pain. This is because of the effect adhesions have on the muscles.
Chiropractic works well to release joint capsule restrictions and to restore motion back to fixated joints, however these joint restrictions will often return if the original soft tissue problem(s) are not addressed. Since muscles and ligaments attach to bone directly, they will pull onto the affected joints, forcing them back into fixation and/or misalignment if the restricted/tightened tissues are left untreated. This phenomenon explains the reason why many patients feel GREAT immediately following an adjustment, but then felt like they were stiff again a day or even a few hours later. Without ART (Active Release Techniques) the results of Chiropractic are often limited in their ability to provide complete resolution for many musculoskeletal problems.
