Soft Tissue Therapy
Assessment, Rehabilitation & Soft Tissue Therapy
I have a wealth of experience of working with people to address their pain conditions, ranging from chronic long lasting pain to injury and wear and tear. (or more accurately, wear and repair!).
Soft Tissue Therapy can help you on your journey, whether that be recovery from an injury, or managing a long term pain condition,
At the start of your appointment I will go through a (friendly!) consultation and assessment, taking details of your medical history, any medications you take, information about your condition, information about your experience of your pain, how it affects you, where you would like to be, what you have had to stop doing but would like to get back to and assessment of your current range of movement,
This may sound a lot but it really helps me to understand how you feel now and where you would like to be, so i can give you the best possible treatment.
Once the consultation and assessment have taken place, I will tailor your specialist massage treatment to work with your treatment aims, whether this be to improve range of movement, reduce pain, feel more comfortable or to feel stressed out muscles relax.
At the end of the session, I will then go through some specific, targeted and individualised rehabilitation strategies, as well as exercises aimed at strengthening movements and muscles that need to be strengthened, and stretching those which may feel restricted.
We will go through what you can do at home to help yourself and continue building on the progress made inbetween appointments, so that when you leave the session you are empowered to continue your rehabilitation day by day, putting the power back in your hands.
Your treatment and rehabilitation exercise plan will be progressive, this means that at each appointment we will review what you have been doing and together we will build on it, so that you are able to keep making improvements.
I am always happy to discuss your individual case, so please feel free to call or email me if you would like more information.
