This therapy relieves tension in the fascia–the sheets of fibrous tissue that encase, support, and delineate the muscles and cover the joint capsules and ligaments. Trauma sometimes shortens the fascia and muscles, restricting movement and blood flow.
Knee surgery to reattach a torn patellar tendon necessarily leaves the joint largely immobile for a time and requires subsequent rehabilitation to restore functionality. Soft-tissue mobilization is a helpful component of such rehab.
Inflammation is the root cause of many conditions, including plantar fasciitis and its associated heel pain. Bone or nerve irritation from inflammation is often to blame for this condition. Myofascial release through massage and mobilization can help treat sensitivity and tightness in the knee.
Soft-Tissue Mobilization (Myofascial Release) is helpful in treating the following conditions:
