Soft Tissue Mobilization

Soft Tissue Mobilization at Town Physical Therapy

At Town PT, we are excited to announce that we have recently introduced Soft Tissue Mobilization as part of our comprehensive therapy services. This innovative approach targets a wide range of musculoskeletal problems, helping our patients recover from injuries, reduce pain, and improve mobility. Soft tissue injuries can occur due to various factors such as muscle tension, sudden trauma, or repetitive stress. At Town PT, we specialize in soft tissue mobilization techniques to help our patients recover from these injuries and regain optimal function.

Soft tissue mobilization is a therapeutic technique employed by physical therapists to address various soft tissue injuries and conditions. These injuries can occur due to muscle tension, sudden trauma like a sprained ankle, or repetitive stress. Symptoms of soft tissue injuries may include weakened muscles, pain, and limited mobility.

During soft tissue mobilization, physical therapists use manual techniques to target and break up adhesions in muscles, fascia, and ligaments. Adhesions are akin to scar tissue that forms as the body heals from soft tissue injuries. This therapy encompasses a wide range of conditions, including tendonitis, sprains, strains, stress injuries, bursitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, fibromyalgia, IT band syndrome, tennis elbow, running injuries, plantar fasciitis, and post-surgical scarring.
