Massage And Soft Tissue Release

Waterford Chartered Physiotherapy Clinic uses a variety of massage and soft tissue release techniques in our treatment of many conditions.

What is Soft Tissue Release?

Soft Tissue Release is a technique used for stretching soft tissues, primarily muscles, fascia and tendons.
Many clients complain of having tight muscles. Sometimes active stretching of these muscles only gives temporary relief from the feelings of tightness. One of the reasons basic stretching only gives temporary relief is because muscles are not uniformly tight: there may be localized areas of tension or adhesions restricting a few fibres only. When we perform active stretches, it may not necessarily be the tight part of the muscle that lengthens, but the part that is already more pliable. Soft Tissue Release helps localize a stretch to those fibres in the muscle that most need lengthening.

Benefits include:

  • Breaking down scar tissue
  • Improved mobility
  • Improved posture
  • Efficient movement patterns
  • Increased flexibility
