Soft Tissue Release (STR): Injury Prevention and Recovery

A truly cutting edge technique that will enhance all of your work. Soft Tissue Release is a technique used by many sports therapists to relieve pain, increase range of motion, prevent injury and reduce injury repair time. It is the most specific type of muscular fibre stretching achievable. Extremely efficient and worthwhile in many arenas, STR extends the connective fascia and treats isolated fibres of shortened muscles. Developed for Olympic athletes, it can be adapted for use with individuals with compromised range of motion such as arthritic clients or wheel chair users.
