How Does Soft Tissue Release Work?

A soft tissue therapist will use their hands or a tool and sometimes elbows, knees, and feet to apply gentle pressure to the affected area. This pressure helps break down scar tissue and adhesions that are limiting the range of motion in an area.


The therapist will work through layers of muscle until they reach the deepest layer of fascia, which surrounds each muscle and attaches it to other muscles in the body. 


Throughout the method, the muscle is stretched either actively or passively. Soft tissue release works by breaking down these muscular adhesions and increasing blood flow to the spot to restore the muscles’ ideal strength, resilience, and function.


The main benefit of Soft tissue release is to relieve pain, reduce inflammation and improve mobility by breaking up scar tissue buildup in these areas. 


Our therapist will ask the patient if they feel any changes during this process and make adjustments accordingly. The therapy can also be done with massage tools such as foam rollers or balls, which are often used for the treatment of myofascial release.
