The primary purpose of soft tissue therapy is to treat musculoskeletal pain or dysfunction caused by life’s everyday stresses. Whilst sport is a common factor, this is far from being the main issue dealt with.
Each treatment provided aims to meet the needs of an individual client and will include:
- Injury assessment
- Advanced treatment techniques
- Remedial exercise and advice to enhance recovery, prevent injury or re-injury and improve posture and function
The aim of soft tissue therapy is to treat all minor and chronic injuries whether caused through sport or any other lifestyle factor, using massage and other more advanced techniques. It also aims to identify the underlying causes of injury and other more long-term improvements in physical well-being and injury prevention.
COVID 19 Clinic Update – my services available during this second national lockdown brings with it new statutory regulations that independent businesses by law must adhere to. These regulations affect the level of access to my services over the next few weeks.
This time around, there is a now an official appreciation that the public do need ongoing access to wider healthcare services provided by professionals who are highly qualified and can take the strain off the primary healthcare system. As a result, level 5 qualified soft tissue practitioners (of which I am one), are recognised as delivering some of the highest standards of supporting health.
Accountable to the professional code set out by the their governing body (which for me is the FHT) I can therefore continue to offer health services during lockdown, but it will not be business as usual.
The impact of increasing infection rates does bring with it a need to be even more stringent and impose greater restrictions to safeguard therapists, clients and their families in the short-term.
As a result, I believe it is prudent and in the interests of my clients to close the clinic for routine, non-urgent appointments for the next few weeks and review again at the end of that period. This means relaxation and maintenance based massage treatments will not be available.
However, for those clients who require urgent, acute clinical musculo- skeletal consultation please contact me on 07931 514358 to discuss the assistance you require and whether a short face-to-face appointment and treatment would be appropriate to prevent further escalation.
