Soft Tissue Release
Soft tissue release (STR) is an effective treatment approach designed to be easily integrated by any therapist working with pain, injury and movement dysfunction. Put simply, STR involves a ‘lock and stretch’ of tissue – but how exactly does it work, what is accepted as ‘best practice’ in terms of application, and how can it be used alongside other tools and techniques?
In this highly practical guide, Mary Sanderson shares a comprehensive range of techniques she has found to be the most beneficial during her own successful career as a physical therapist and lecturer. Detailed chapters present the pre-requisite theory of how STR works, comprehensive advice on the treatment of all the main muscle groups and specific guidance on how to modify techniques across different settings.
Soft Tissue Release: A Practical Handbook for Physical Therapists is a complete reference guide for students embarking on clinical practice, therapists from all backgrounds wanting to understand more about pain management, or any individual wishing to harness the power of soft tissue release to treat their own pain.
