Soft Tissue Technique
Soft tissue therapy is the assessment, treatment and management of soft tissue injury, pain and dysfunction primarily of the neuromusculoskeletal system. Using the Soft Tissue Technique, firm pressure is directly applied to specific areas to relax hypertonic muscles and stretch tight fascial structures. Massage techniques may also be used as part of a treatment application. Sustained pressure can also be used to alleviate tight areas within muscles and fascia.
