Soft tissue injuries are very painful and can decrease a patient’s range of motion. A soft tissue injury results from damage to the muscles, fascia, or tendons of the body. These injuries can include damage from sprains, strains, overuse injuries, or adhesions following a surgery. Once a patient has a soft tissue injury they can experience bruising, swelling, pain, and loss of function in the affected tissue. At Ogden Clinic in Utah, our physical therapists can use instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM) to help relieve the pain caused by soft tissue injuries.
