Soft tissue mobilization is a form of manual therapy. Your physical therapist uses hands-on techniques on your muscles, ligaments, and fascia to eliminate adhesions and tension, optimizing your muscle function.

Adhesions are your body’s attempt to heal a soft tissue injury with a prolonged inflammation process, resulting in excessive scar tissue. These new tissues pull against one another, forming trigger points of pain.

Goals of soft tissue mobilization include:

  • Eliminate or reduce adhesions
  • Improve range of motion
  • Lengthen muscles and tendons
  • Reduce swelling
  • Restore pain-free functional movement patterns
