SOFT TISSUE MOBILIZATION

SOFT TISSUE MOBILIZATION

Experts in Soft Tissue Mobilization in Greenville South Carolina

Strains and sprains are common soft tissue injuries. Soft tissues are made up of  different kinds of cells that surround and support the organs and skeletal system. They include muscles, skin, fat, ligaments, fascia, tendons, blood vessels, nerves, and cartilage. The body’s natural method of healing these soft tissue injuries includes creating adhesions, which may become chronic, leading to long term inflammation and collagenous scar tissue. Soft tissue mobilization is a hands-on therapeutic method aimed to reduce any pain, swelling, or scar tissue, break up adhesions, and increase, as well as improve, range of motion by stretching and lengthening fascia.

Soft tissue mobilization is a type of manual physical therapy where your authorized PT utilizes hands-on techniques on your muscles, ligaments and fascia in order to break adhesions and optimize your muscle capability.

Adhesions are your body’s attempt to heal a soft tissue injury with an extended inflammation process, bringing about lengthy strands of collagenous scar tissue. These new tissues pull against each other, forming trigger points of pain.
