Soft tissue injuries may occur from a single incident such as a car accident or sporting injury, or due to accumulative factors over a number of years such as poor posture, emotional stress or hormonal imbalances.
Soft Tissue Occupational Therapy can benefit people with a wide range of conditions, including:
Occupational Therapists will use a range of orthopaedic, neuromuscular and occupational assessments, to ensure your condition is treated appropriately. This may improve the way you engage in daily occupations.
Hands on Techniques
A range of methods are used during treatment sessions, including trigger point therapy, myofascial and myopractic techniques. These not only release tight muscles, but also break down fibrous adhesions and improve nerve signal strength; allowing your body to retrain your muscles correctly.
Stretching and Strengthening
Long and flexible muscles are healthy muscles. Stretching and strengthening is incorporated with treatment; assisting to restore healthy movement patterns in your soft tissues.
Your Soft Tissue Occupational Therapist will work to empower you through education and promoting good habits, so that the improvements you see through treatment are seen throughout all aspects of your life.
Chiropractic and Occupational Therapy
Both modalities are fantastic treatments for relieving pain, restoring mobility, and boosting performance. When combined, these compatible therapies give you extra benefits that a single therapy would not. This means more benefits for you in a variety of ways.
