Soft tissue mobilization treatment is a form of manual physical therapy where your licensed physical therapist uses hands-on techniques on your muscles, ligaments and fascia with the goal of breaking adhesions. Adhesions are your body's attempt to heal a soft tissue injury with a lengthy inflammation process, resulting in long strands of collagenous scar tissue. These new tissues pull against one another, forming trigger points of pain. During mobilization therapy, the physiotherapist 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. Myofascial adhesions pain syndrome is a chronic pain disorder. In myofascial pain syndrome, pressure on sensitive points in your muscles (trigger points) causes pain in seemingly unrelated parts of your body. This is also called referred pain. Myofascial pain syndrome typically occurs after a muscle has been contracted repetitively. This can be caused by repetitive motions used in certain jobs or hobbies or by stress-related muscle tension. Tennis elbow is a condition in which the outer part of the elbow becomes sore and tender. The forearm muscles and tendons become damaged from overuse or repeating the same strenuous motions again and again. This leads to pain and tenderness on the outside of the elbow. Any activity, including playing tennis, which involves the repetitive use of the extensor muscles of the forearm, can cause acute or chronic tendonitis of the tendinous insertion of these muscles at the lateral epicondyle of the elbow.
