Just as is said about history, the same can be said about painful conditions and injuries; those who do not understand it are doomed to repeat it.
Patient Education About Their Condition
Soft Tissue Mobilization
Physical Therapists perform soft tissue mobilization to loosen adhesions, break up scar tissue, release trigger points, reduce swelling and improve blood flow to initiate tissue healing.
Often thought only to be done by chiropractors, physical therapists are well trained in spinal and peripheral joint mobilization and manipulation. This improves postural alignment not only in the spine but also the shoulders, elbow, hand, hips, knees and ankles.
Although exercise is a key component to prevention of and long term recovery from painful conditions, ironically a high percentage of conditions we treat are in fact caused by improper or an unbalanced approaches to exercise.
