    I'll try the "big" forum for this question, tried one of the other less traveled forums, and only received one response (thanks Evom 1). Anyone here have muscle adhesions worked on by a massage therapist, or an ART certified therapist? I think I have some good sized ones, like cables in my delts, keeps me from free wt. benching, etc.

    Yup. Last year I was getting soft tissue work 2x a month and the difference in my training and my physique was drastic.

    About to hop on 1 trip per month each to my chiro/mobility guy and a deep massage therapist.

    Be honest with the therapist. It takes some weight and levarge to work muscle on bigger people. They’re used to the average human/recreational athlete.

    Good point. I know if I really dig in there I can literally feel large cables, that's why I'm having a male therapist go after it. Not to say there aren't women who can do the job, I just think a male's strength will be better to get it done. He comes highly recommended

    My massage therapist is a physique competitor. She's awesome. Very strong. I had to get her to go as hard as I like it but I always have to do that with new people. She's been my go-to for over a couple of years now. With certain unusual old injuries I have like where my lower leg was pretty much blown off and reattached with hardware and a cadaver bone I get really bad adhesions. It makes a world of difference when I have her break them down.
    Same with where I broke some vertebrae. She gives me more relief than any painkillers. I love a good chiropractor but if I had to choose I'd choose her any day. My leg and back hurt 100 percent of the time except for after she works on me. I try to get in twice a month but I have to schedule way ahead because she stays booked up.

    For a while I was going every week for deep tissue, told her my sites or if I had any knots from injections. It's pretty expensive to go so frequent but I think as much as you can afford is great

    Absolutely. And my insurance covers 24 massages a year as long as they are done at the chiropractor and he or she signs off on the therapy.

    You considered ultrasound therapy to break it up? Combine that with deep tissue and u can't go wrong

    I take it that you have had the ultrasound therapy I don't know much about it. Please share your thoughts. There's a lot more BS therapeutic products and services out there than effective ones. I've seen infrared,laser, etc. I tried the infrared machine that a friend had paid a lot of money for and it was bogus. I didn't get any effect from it after trying it on several different areas.

    This girl I use puts her elbows into me and her feet on the wall. She's one of the most important people in my life. I'm being a bit facetious but it's close to the truth!

    Yea, on a few occasions. Most chiropractors use it, physical therapist, or of u have enough $$$ you can buy an at home one. It definitely works, may take time and several sessions depending on how bad the tissue is, but it works. Over time they'll go down, I used to have a bad knot on my left deltoid and it took about a year to go away. I no longer shoot delts much, I started thinking of how many times I used to go in them and I want to avoid any knotted up areas

    Never thought of this, could explain a lot, as I use my delts as an injection site a lot.

    Yep, get away from the delts for awhile. Try the lats, I know it sounds fucked up but lat shots are easy and often times handle PIP much better than other areas

    In your experience where is the best place to pin lats?

    Ok, so on lat shots I pretty much stay about 3" under the armpit and go anywhere along the lat as long as it's 3" under the armpit, a little difficult to reach but I can do it, u may need to use a different finger to push plunger. Just try it
