The New Breakthrough for Managing Pain:
Specialized Soft Tissue Therapy
  • The New Breakthrough for Managing Pain
  • Muscle Adhesion Fibrosis
  • Nerve Entrapment
  • Tendinosis
  • The First Step to Your Custom Movement Rx: Call Us Today
The last couple of months we've introduced the Pain Management Continuum:
This month we are focusing on one of the most common, yet under diagnosed, causes of pain. 
Soft Tissue Problems: Major Pain in the neck
Specialized soft tissue treatment, specifically Manual Adhesion Release™ and Instrument Adhesion Release™, is the new breakthrough for managing pain. In this newsletter, we will review three of the most common types of soft tissue problems causing pain. 
#1 - Muscle Adhesion Fibrosis: Knot-like, gluey build up, caused by repetitive use
  • Restricts movement 
  • Causes pain
  • Increases rate of joint breakdown (e.g., cartilage loss, degeneration, arthritis)
Dr. Matt Buffan is Rochester's only full body certified Integrative Diagnosis provider to find and fix muscle adhesion fibrosis.

#2 - Nerve Entrapment: Nerve is stuck to muscle and can not slide as it should
  • A feeling of numbness, tingling, and/or burning sensations
  • Deep aching pain
  • Sciatica, carpal tunnel, and/or headaches 
Sciatica is the most common form of nerve entrapment.  It can be resolved without surgery, using Dr. Matt Buffan's hands and Manual Adhesion Release™.

#3 -Tendinosis: Degeneration and scar tissue for mation where a muscle attaches to a bone
  • Chronic pain and injuries
  • Pain after rest with first use (e.g., first step after waking, reaching for cell phone in morning)
  • Pain in your foot, pain at your "sit bone", "tennis elbow"
Tendinosis cases are difficult and usually result in chronic pain.  They must be managed by an expert to resolve the problem without injections or surgery.

There has never been a better time to have a soft tissue problem. Soft tissue pain can limit life and is the opposite of fun. However, specially trained expert providers are able to identify and fix soft tissue problems BEFORE they develop into chronic pain, advanced degeneration, and surgical cases.

If you or a loved one is suffering from one of the soft tissue problems detailed above, it's time for a new solution.

Achieve "Freedom From Pain", let us guide you to your goal.

The secret to a pain free life is...

Do you feel like you are on a tightrope and one misstep will trigger your painThis month we are diving deeper into the pain management continuum, to the origin of why most people experience pain.
Balance is the key
The secret to a pain free life is balance. Each person’s life has many demands that pull or knock us, in many directions. These include responsibilities of family caregiving, career demands, recreation, and fitness pursuits, so it’s easy to see how our health became a low priority. The usual story is that a person feels “mostly fine”, begins to notice something “different” when moving or doing an activity, and then “something’s terribly wrong!” A part of our body starts to jab or scream at us to let us know, “Hey, this is a problem, do something about this!” 

This is when people feel they are walking on a tight rope and don’t know where they are headed. It’s extremely difficult to maintain your balance when you can’t look at where the path is leading.  The purpose of this continuum is to show your options and empower you to make the right decision for you to get back to balanced and pain free.
Pain Management Continuum
To achieve freedom from pain in a balanced way you have to get to the right provider. They must explain what the physical and mechanical factors are that are causing your problem. This concept of what you ask your body to do vs. what your body can handle is fundamental. This applies to your whole body but also each individual joint and muscle. Click here for a brief video on this topic.

Freedom from pain

On the “ask our body to do” side we have your daily activities, habits, work position, repetitive motions or sports. On the “ability” side we have ability to function, including movement, and strength. When we are out of balance the “ask our body to do” side will be overloaded. This overload leads to muscle adhesion and functional restriction with movement. Eventually this overloaded area becomes a problem, gradually worsening until it hurts, “Hey, this is a problem, do something about this!”

To solve the problem, first we need to restore the health and function to the overused muscles and joints. Only then can we add specific and simple exercises to balance strength. After restoring function, all that is left is to understand how to maintain the balance given the demands on our body and any limitations in structure or function. For you to be healthy, you need to have a surplus “ability” of what your body can handle when compared to what you are “asking it to do”. 

Our job at Rochester Spine + Sports Chiropractic is to be the best we can be at providing exactly what you need to be as healthy as possible for as long as possible. If that is the destination you have in mind as you walk your tightrope of life, I am the expert you seek, call now 678-1362, for your consultation

How can I manage my pain?


How can I manage my pain?
Pain is a signal from our body that something is wrong. At Rochester Spine + Sports Chiropractic, we see people frustrated and struggling with pain. They need an answer. 
The impact goes beyond the one hurting too. Pain impacts other relationships, especially your loved one’s. Many people are searching for answer and just don’t know where to go, or who to trust. This diagram holds the answers to how you can take back your power, resolve your pain and live freely.
Over the next six months we are going to take you on a journey through your pain management options. On the left, we have conservative care.
  • Balance: applies to your whole life and within each area of your body.
  • Soft tissue: refers to the muscle problem, known as adhesion. This problem is a big deal that repetitively and reliably demonstrates why people are in pain.
  • Herbal: describes how nutrition, our food and nature’s medicine, herbs, can be used heal and enhance our existence. 
As we approach the invasive side on the right, we have...
  • Medication: where we seek to take something to alleviate our pain.
  • Injections: which are targeted applications of chemicals to overpower our bodies' normal feedback mechanisms, including pain.
  • Surgery: all doctors agree should be attempted only after conservative methods have not been successful, or in an emergency situation.
Every person and their healthcare providers want the same thing… successful and sustained results for the patient.  Health care providers have different training and experience when it comes to how to manage pain. 

In our office, as a conservative care expert, I will earn your trust. We provide an accurate diagnosis, teach you about your options, apply the most advanced soft tissue specialist skills to eliminate pain and help you understand balance to keep your body pain free. Our mission is to move a person closer to their vision of optimal health, it starts with freedom from pain. 

Our goal is to provide the best results, that can be sustained for a long time with the least risk of harm. Call now, 678-1362, to schedule a consultation with the doctor to find out whether our office has the answer to help you or a loved one struggling with pain.
