Our physiotherapists are all highly trained in a variety of soft tissue techniques. In fact, Steve presents workshops and lectures at the University of SA on the topic of soft tissue assessment and treatment. Amongst the wide variety of soft tissue techniques we utilise, the main soft tissue technique of choice is Trigger Point Therapy, which:

- involves identifying tender/ tight points within various muscles
- incorporates localised moderate pressure to the trigger point with active breathing/ relaxation from the patient
