The purpose of this pilot study was determine the effects of soft tissue mobilization (STM) on range of motion (ROM), scar pliability, and vascularity. Patients received either one treatment session of standard physical therapy or standard physical therapy plus 10 to 15 minutes of STM. Before and after ROM, scar pliability and vascularity measurements were obtained. The student's t test was used to compare measurements and revealed the STM group (n = 5) had significant (p < 0.10) gains in wrist… CONTINUE READING
