When we exercise, sit or stand in specific postures for long periods, microtraumas can occur in soft tissue structures. This microtrauma can also cause adhesions in the muscles and surrounding fascia leading to tightness and pulling.
These adhesions are the focus of soft tissue work. The aim is to release the muscle and lengthen the fibres. Soft tissue therapy can be utilised in combination with mobilisations, joint manipulation, stretching and dry needling.
