Soft Tissue Mobilization

Soft tissue mobilization is utilized by a physical therapist using their hands to push, pull, and knead muscles, ligaments, tendons, and nerves in precise ways to help bring pain relief and return the body to functionality. Children who would benefit from soft tissue mobilization are those who should have improved range of motion, who have adhesions, tight muscles and tendons, experience swelling, edema, and pain, and/or have lost functionality in their body. Our physical therapists here at Medical Support Services are trained to provide this type of treatment in a pediatric setting.
