ABMP’s article about soft tissue review findings

Found yet more evidence based research from Manual Therapy journal that found a review of 7 articles over 25 years! The review stated that manual soft tissue therapies are effective in treating certain musculoskeletal disorders and injuries. It clarified the efficacy of upper and lower extremity maladies and found these 3 notable stats: myofascial release was effective for treating lateral epicondylitis and plantar fasciitis, movement re-education was effective for managing lateral epicondylitis, and localized relaxation massage teamed with other modalities may provide short term treatment benefits for carpal tunnel syndrome!
