Soft Tissue Therapy

Soft Tissue Therapy is the assessment and treatment of aches, pains and injuries. The predominant form of treatment is ‘hands on’ manual therapy followed by exercise prescription (and in house referral to our exercise specialists) and self-treatment instruction.

Physiotherapists help you get the most out of life. They help you recover from injury and surgery, reduce pain and stiffness, increase mobility and prevent further injury. They listen to your needs to tailor a treatment specific to your condition. As first contact practitioners, you don’t need a doctor’s referral to see a physiotherapist. Physiotherapists, doctors, and other health professionals will often work as part of a team to plan and manage treatment for a specific condition.

Physiotherapists are trained to assess your condition, diagnose the problem, and help you understand what’s wrong. Your treatment plan will take into account your lifestyle, activities and general health.

The following are common treatment methods used by physiotherapists:

  • Exercise programs to improve mobility and strengthen muscles
  • Joint manipulation and mobilisation to reduce pain and stiffness
  • Muscle re-education to improve control
  • Airway clearance techniques and breathing exercises
  • Soft tissue mobilisation (massage)
  • Acupuncture and dry needling
  • Hydrotherapy
  • Assistance with use of aids, splints, crutches, walking sticks and wheelchairs to help you move around
