Soft tissue release & deep tissue massage
Soft tissue release and deep tissue massage can be helpful for a number of conditions. Whether problems have developed from a specific injury or tightness and pain from everyday activities. A physio will use massage techniques to help treat pain, muscle tension, tightness, and reduced range of movement. Aimed at the deeper tissue structures of muscle (often referred to as fascia or connective tissue), graded massage is used to treat muscle adhesions, break down hard fibrous tissue, realign collagen fibers back into normal form and encourage greater elasticity in the collagen to prevent re-trauma. Following treatment, patients will benefit from reduced pain, tension, and improved mobility.
