  Title A theoretical model for treatment of soft tissue injuries: Treatment of an ankle sprain in a college tennis player [case report]
Journal J Manipulative Physiol Ther. 2005 May;28(4):285-288
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article

OBJECTIVE: To present theories of manual treatment approaches to soft tissue injuries using an example case report.

CLINICAL FEATURES: A college tennis player with an ankle sprain for 6 weeks, not responding to standard treatment, was unable to play tennis or compete in tournaments.

INTERVENTION AND OUTCOME: Soft tissue treatment was applied to the ankle for 2 visits. The patient experienced complete resolution of the problem and returned to play without relapse during a 9-month follow-up period. Theories of myofascial distortion treatment are discussed.

CONCLUSION: This treatment approach may have potential for soft tissue problems that are not amenable to current therapy approaches.
