Soft Tissue Manipulation

Soft tissue manipulation can come in a number of forms, the most obvious being remedial massage.

Whilst massage might be the most popular and well-known technique for soft tissue manipulation, MET (Muscle Energy Techniques), Neuromuscular Techniques & Myofascial Release or Trigger Point Therapy might also be appropriate.

MET involves a patient actively using his or her muscles from a controlled position in a specific direction against a distinct counter force.

Neuromuscular techniques are proven and effective methods of alleviating pain, restoring mobility and even improving posture when treating lower back pain. It involves pressure being applied to certain trigger points to release the tension in a certain muscle group.
