Massage Therapy in Somerville, MA
Physical therapists will often use massage as part of their treatment program. At Outback PT, our physical therapists are trained in using Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization techniques specifically employing the use of the Adhesion Breaker tools.
The inflammatory process within the human body is necessary for proper healing to occur, however scar tissue and adhesions are a byproduct of such process which can impede upon the function of the muscles and surrounding tissues. Adhesion breakers soft tissue tools help to correct the adhesions and scar tissue that form due to injury and inflammation by increasing tissue elasticity and fibroblastic activity to return the muscles and surrounding tissues to as close to pre-injury status as possible. This is accomplished by initiating a controlled inflammatory process which will allow the tissue to begin the healing process, breaking down scar tissue and adhesions in the tissue and redirecting collagen formation in the proper orientation for correct movement of muscles and tissues. The Adhesion Breaker soft tissue tools allow the user more ease in detecting fibrotic changes in the soft tissues through the vibrations carried through the tools as they are run along the fibers of the muscle, they help with faster recovery and rehabilitation from injury, and decrease pain in the patient by helping to remove scar tissue and adhesions which limit the proper function of muscle.
“I didn’t quite know what to expect when Ithamar first brought out the Adhesion Breaker instruments, but after a quick treatment session my knee pain had vanished – these tools are a miracle! - Michelle M
