Myofascial Disruption Technique
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.
