What is Soft Tissue Treatment (STT) ?
It involves the assessment, treatment and follow-up of tissues like ligaments, cartilages, muscles, tendons and fascia. The common soft tissue injuries are sprains, contusions, ligament tears, tendonitis and bursitis. This is mostly done in sports medicine and/or for people with said injuries. There are different types of soft tissue treatments ranging from heat/cold therapies to myofascial pain relief by massage, stretching, electrotherapy, tissue mobilizations and hold-release techniques. All these treatments are structured to provide pain relief, increase the tissue length, increase the tissue mobility, strength, fasten the healing and reduce swelling.
