Soft Tissue Therapy & Clinical Acupuncture
Soft tissue therapy
Can be defined as the ‘management, manipulation, and rehabilitation of the body’s soft tissues ‘ e.g our muscles, ligaments, tendons and fascia. It is a very specialised skill and your therapist will use their excellent palpation skills to identify sites or areas for specific attention. They can then tailor specific treatment plan, unique to you as an individual combining other evidence based techniques.
Soft tissue abnormalities may be caused by an array of factors, including a faulty posture, adverse biomechanics,Tension, repetitive strain a sporting trauma fatigue or simply every day activities. We at Ocean Therapy believe you DO NOT have to be a sportsperson to receive a from a treatment absolutely everyone (providing there are no contraindications preventing treatment) can benefit.
Some of the benefits of a Soft tissue treatment: May help to reduce pain, improve your flexibility and range of movement, remodel scar tissue, assist in mental and physical preparation for any sport, and will have a generally positive effect on your wellbeing.
Orthopeadic Musculoskeletal Acupuncture
Acupuncture Is a highly respected ancient Chinese medical practise which can help with a wide spectrum of musculoskeletal issues and many systemic problems helping to maintain your overall health and wellbeing.
The chinese believe that we are made up of vital energy called ‘Qi’, and when this flow is blocked or impaired for whatever reason, it is believed physical illness will follow. They believe that our internal organs are linked to various meridians or channels mapped along our body, for example the stomach meridian is used to help those with shoulder problems. Acupuncture is all encompassing, it will look at disease and dysfunction in a completely different approach to conventional medicine, and can help re balance your energy and help restore your health.
Examples of problems treated with acupuncture at Ocean therapy: Back, neck and shoulder pain , acute and chronic injury’s. General joint pain , arthritis , hand and wrist pain, Achilles Injury's, headaches, muscle strains, & any general musculoskeletal tension, plus many more conditions not even mentioned here. The practise of needling using acupuncture if indicated may be used to compliment your soft tissue treatment. Needling may take place away from the site of injury using distal points that may influence healing and encourage circulation. It may well be decided after some discussion that you may benefit from a series of consecutive treatments, to look at more specific problems, a block of between 4- 6 weekly sessions may be advised depending on your condition.
