Soft tissue refers to muscle, ligament, tendon, and other soft tissues that make up the musculoskeletal system. The musculoskeletal system is often overlooked as the source of a person's pain. However, it has now been proven that many pains that are chronic and previously thought to be associated with structures such as the spine or skeletal system are in fact distortions of soft tissue. Dr. Hayes co-developed an exciting treatment technique called Myofascial Disruption Technique. Dr. Brad Hayes in association with Dr. Malcolm Conway and Dr. Hugh Gemmell helped develop and helps teach this technique to doctors internationally.
MyoFascial Disruption Technique (MFDT) MyoFascial Disruption Technique (MFDT) is a hands-on approach to treating soft tissue injuries. MFDT recognizes that most, if not all, soft tissue injuries are a result of a separation or a disruption of the fascia. [fascia - a sheet or band of fibrous connective tissue enveloping, separating, or binding together muscles, organs, and other soft structures of the body.]
The fascia can separate at the origin or insertion of a tendon or ligament. The fascia can separate within the muscle in a band like separation. It can ‘wrinkle’ like a shirt pulled out from your hamper. It can ‘un-coil’ in the extremities like a twisted slinky toy. Dr. Hayes repairs the fascia by 'ironing the wrinkle', meaning he re-attaches the fascia which eliminates your pain.
