Soft Tissue Release Technique

Soft tissue release technique is used to restore normal muscle, tendon, ligament and fascia activity within a body. Everyone suffers from muscle knots and tightness just due to every day life, so this technique can help calm muscles down. Essentially, the doctor is going to gently pin down your muscle using their thumb, while assisting you through a movement to help shorten and lengthen the muscle. This allows the muscle to relax to their standard muscle length.

It is normal to have scar tissue or fibrous tissue form. It helps prevent strains or tears within the muscle. However, when we get too much scar tissue or fibrous tissue, it can cause a functional deficit within the muscle, limit range of motion, increase inflammation, and may even lead to pain. As the dense scar tissue forms, your muscles become shorter and weaker, nerves can become entrapped in the muscle, and tendons become overstretch. This is where Soft Tissue Release Technique can help you!

Soft Tissue Release Technique, also called pin and stretch, is a hands-on technique used to release muscle tension, tone, and fascia. This allows the muscles to slide and glide past one another, as well as decrease friction so your body operates as effectively and efficiently as possible. 

This technique works by taking a muscle to its corresponding short position. The doctor will then pin down the muscle using his/her thumb and stretch the muscle to its longest position. This allows the muscle to resume proper length, detangle nerves trapped in the muscle, and improve muscle motion. Other benefits of soft tissue release technique are increased flexibility and range of motion, decreased pain, decreased stiffness and tightness, and more!
