Soft tissue techniques help with mobilising muscles, tendons and ligaments. Mobilising the soft tissues of the body assists muscles that are short and tight, causing injuries, to allow for a pain-free motion. This can aid anyone wishing to guard against or recover from a tissue injury.
01. What’s the Difference Between Massage and Soft Tissue Mobilization?
Massage therapy has traditionally focused on generalized relaxation and usually covers the entire body or large anatomical regions. Soft tissue mobilization, however, addresses specific problems, and takes into account numerous aspects of both the diagnosis and potential outcomes. Similarities between massage therapy and soft tissue mobilization include the use of the hands, thumbs, and elbows to treat the muscle, fascia (connective tissue), tendons, and ligaments. But unlike massage therapy, specific tissue mobilization instruments may be utilized. This is known as instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization.
02. What does mobilization therapy involve?
Soft-tissue mobilization therapy is used by some: occupational therapists ,physical therapists ,massage therapists ,osteopathic doctors ,chiropractors Your therapist will start by performing a physical exam. They’ll identify problem areas and determine your range of motion in the affected joints. Depending on your condition, they may recommend several sessions of mobilization therapy. During mobilization therapy, your therapist may use a variety of techniques. For example, they may apply gentle pressure and stretch the affected tissue. They may also use ergonomically designed tools. This is called instrument-assisted soft-tissue mobilization ,
03. Who Needs Soft Tissue Mobilization?
Soft tissue mobilization can be especially beneficial for the following patient groups: 1 :- people who are experiencing shortening of muscle or connective tissue 2 :- individuals undergoing post-surgical rehabilitation - particularly those restoring lost range of motion 3 :- patients struggling with chronic pain syndrome 4 :- athletes recovering from a sports-related injury
04. What are soft tissue injuries?
Soft tissue injury is an umbrella term. It covers any type of injury to your soft tissues. Common types include: sprains, strains, contusions, tendonitis, bursitis. These injuries usually affect your muscles, tendons, or fascia. Fascia are the connective tissues that surround, connect, or support your: muscles, organs, bones,blood vessels, nerves. Soft tissue injuries often occur when your muscles are abnormally tense. Your muscles work by tensing, contracting, and then relaxing. They get shorter when they contract, which moves the part of the skeletal system they’re attached to. If they don’t relax completely, it can lead to problems
