Treatment – Soft Tissue Therapy

As previously discussed under soft tissue conditions (myofascial trigger points can develop within our muscle groups, and cause patterns of both localised and referred pain. These trigger points can be released to decrease symptoms, and increase your overall muscle function.

At Hand Works, we are able to complete soft tissue treatment to loosen up the involved muscle groups. If appropriate, your therapist will also introduce a stretching program for you, which will assist in the release of a trigger point. Stretching will also help to lengthen the muscle after the trigger points have been released, and allow you to use your muscle more efficiently to achieve greater movement of a joint. Soft tissue treatment assists with reducing pain, and allows tightly contracted muscles to lengthen, therefore increasing your flexibility and range of motion of a joint.
