Manual Soft Tissue Manipulation & Mobilization in Doylestown and Washington Crossing
Stretching & Deep Pressure to Ease Pain & Inflammation
At Advanced Spine and Sports Medicine, we offer a variety of gentle, noninvasive chiropractic and physical therapy services, including manual soft tissue manipulation and mobilization that are designed to optimize muscle function and break adhesions. When your body forms adhesions, it’s in an attempt to heal a soft tissue injury, but these often result in long strands of scar tissue that pull against one another and cause painful trigger points. The goal of this therapy is to break down these adhesions so you can improve your range of motion and reduce pain while restoring functionality. This technique is highly effective for back and neck pain, ankle sprains, carpal tunnel syndrome, shoulder impingement, and knee and hip pain, among others.
What Is Manual Soft Tissue Manipulation & Mobilization?
This non-invasive manual therapy is performed by your provider with hands-on techniques on your muscles, ligaments, and fascia to break adhesions and optimize your muscle function. This can be performed as trigger point therapy, manual muscle massage, friction massage, pin and stretch, and so on. During your therapy, your provider may use various techniques that involve gentle pressure to stretch the affected soft tissue to promote the body’s natural healing process and release muscle tension which in turn increases flexibility and mobility.
