Project Description

Soft Tissue Mobilization

Manual treatment of soft tissue, which includes muscles, nerves, skin, and fascia, is used to evaluate and treat dysfunction of these areas of the body. Soft tissue mobilization offers a functional, integrated approach to finding dysfunctions that affect movement, pain, posture, and efficient body mechanics.

This is a hands on approach to finding the area of dysfunction with a thorough evaluation of mobility, posture, body mechanics, and pain. Methods used may include tools such as foam rollers and massage balls, or manual therapy such as deep tissue massage, manual stretching, and manual traction. These techniques have been developed by many osteopaths, physical therapists, and practitioners, including Dr. Robert Ward, Dr. William Neidner, and Dr. Ida Rolf who coined the phrase “put the tissue where it should be and then ask for movement”. Many of these techniques have been modified and added to by a variety of physical therapists, osteopaths, massage therapists, and chiropractors.
