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.

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.

I went to see Faye for a torn ACL in my right knee. I had seen many people regarding the issue and was in so much pain. I could hardly walk or straighten my leg. After just 3 sessions I can say I am able to finally do my day-to-day tasks and workouts without being in pain. Faye was very informative and professional and has helped me more than she knows! I know I will need ongoing treatment with my injury, but I feel well looked after and pain free for 90% of my days! Thank you, Faye!

I suffered a very serious shoulder injury in 2018 and was concerned for my future in my sport. Faye was recommended by my shoulder consultant due to her specialist experience with athletes and I cannot fault the treatment I have received. I am back to full fitness and strength now because of her expertise. Faye is very knowledgeable, and I heavily recommend her to anyone needing a top quality and professional Physiotherapist. Thank you, Faye.
