Soft Tissue Therapy (STT) is the management, manipulation and rehabilitation of soft tissues of the body including; muscles, tendons and ligaments.
For clients who have musculoskeletal injury, pain or dysfunction caused by any of life’s stresses and from all walks of life. Although sport can be a common factor with many client’s symptoms, this is far from being the main issue dealt with.
Soft Tissue Therapy integrates 3 essential clinical elements
- Assessment – Applying a range of assessment methods to determine whether Soft Tissue Therapy is appropriate and devise a suitable treatment plan for the individual client.
- Treatment – Applying a range of soft tissue techniques (including massage) to aid recovery from injury and improve soft tissue condition and joint mobility
- Rehabilitation – Offering advice on a range of remedial exercises and lifestyle factors aimed at speeding up recovery, preventing injury recurrence as well as improving posture, performance and function.
Who is it for?
Not just for professional sports people but to anybody wishing to guard against or recover from a soft tissue injury. STT is good for people with injuries, chronic pain or restricted range of motion.
