SOFT TISSUE THERAPY

At Faye Pattison Physiotherapy, we work with anyone who share our goals and want to restore function to fatigued or injured muscles, transforming their mental and physical health by reducing stress and enhance physical wellbeing, and who wish to perform at their best, ease muscle tension, improve mobility and decrease pain.

What Is Soft Tissue Therapy?

Soft tissue therapy is the assessment, treatment and management of soft tissue injury, pain and dysfunction of the musculoskeletal system. A therapist at Faye Pattison Physiotherapy will use deep tissue massage skills to treat your body, along with manual stretching, myofascial release and trigger point therapy. This technique will help to relieve pain from repetitive strain injuries, help to reduce muscle tensions and help to achieve postural correction.

The treatment is also frequently used as a recovery strategy to help muscles recover from intensive exercise and training.

A Massage Technique That Provides You with Results

Our team of ISRM (Institute of Sport and Remedial Massage) accredited therapists based in Chelmsford at the Faye Pattison Physiotherapy Clinic, have the highest level of training available in the UK and will work with you on an individual basis to pinpoint exactly what you need to deliver the required treatment that provides the results you are seeking. If it’s just stress relief and relaxation you are looking for, then like many of our clients, simply come and enjoy the opportunity!

If you wonder whether soft tissue therapy can help you, please contact the clinic via email or phone to speak to one of our members of staff who will be happy to help.

What Are the Benefits of Having Regular Soft Tissue Therapy Sessions?

It’s great that as a population we are now exercising more, but we are also leading busier and more active lives which is slowly taking its toll on our bodies. A soft tissue therapy session in Chelmsford will help to ease any stiff muscles or joint pains, enabling better recovery to help the body perform daily tasks with ease, lessening the risk of injury.

Booking in for a session with Faye Pattison Physiotherapy will leave you feeling more relaxed with improved circulation, increased flexibility and a reduction of pain in the body. The treatment will help to relieve the tightness and target the trigger points to help relax muscles in the body.

The frequency of soft tissue therapy sessions will depend on the individual, but having a monthly session is a good protocol in keeping the body in tip top condition.

Hands on therapy is often deemed to be a treatment that causes pain – but that’s just not true! Some discomfort may be experienced, but it’s often described as a ‘nice pain’ that will help to alleviate discomfort and pain in the long term.
