#SoftTissueMobilization and #MyofascialRelease are specialized mobilization procedures of the muscles, connective tissue, ligaments and tendons. This approach helps to release tight, scarred tissue, relax muscles, improve movement and facilitate circulation. Mobilization is often combined with movement to augment the freeing and stimulating effect. The therapist will locate areas of restriction through skilled layer-by-layer assessment, searching for restrictions that impair motion and cause pain. Patients rave about how great they feel after just one session.

#Ultrasound energy is widely used by physical therapists and other clinicians to treat #sportsinjuries and #chronicpain.

Ultrasound devices used for pain treatment deliver longer and higher energy pulses than the type used for imaging. Therapeutic ultrasound penetrates tissue, possibly resulting in a slight healing effect. It may improve circulation and aid in intake of nutrients which can help tissue recover more quickly and alleviate pain.
