Why choose a Physiotherapist Petersfield when you can choose a Soft Tissue Therapist ?

Physiotherapy has changed a lot over the years. It used to be a very hands-on treatment from very experienced professionals being training in a hospital based environment.

Physio is now far more academic & is much more exercise proscription based. NHS physio’s come out of University with very little, if any, hands-on treatment experience in dealing with muscle problems & injuries.

Patients respond much better to the traditional hands-on treatment that Physiotherapists used to use, they were just as effective back then as they are today. That is why you need a Soft Tissue Therapist, we have academic knowledge, assessment & exercise prescriptions skill as well as vital hands-on therapy experience every physio’s used to have.

So when you think you may need a Physiotherapist Petersfield you may in fact need a Soft Tissue Therapist instead.

Osteopathy Petersfield & Chiropractic Petersfield Vs Soft Tissue Therapy Petersfield

You often find those who seek out a Osteopath for lower back pain in Petersfield, frozen shoulder, tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, tennis elbow etc. could often be treated just as effectively as by a Soft Tissue Therapist, often receiving more ‘hands-on’ treatment.

It is, or should be, mostly agreed that you recover faster from injuries with a multi-pronged approach to treatment. Osteopathy techniques, chiropractic style spinal manipulation & the all important physiotherapy based exercises, should, get people better, quicker!

A general visit to a Chiropractor is all very well and good if you need a joint clicking, & yes it does help. We at ReVive do offer chiropractic spinal manipulation techniques. Some research shows that a ‘click’ of the joint gives instant but temporary relief. Many would probably agree, that’s why you maybe need so many appointments. As we stated above, manipulation twinned with ‘traditional ‘hands-on’ treatment should be more effective. That is why we offer several treatment techniques at ReVive Petersfield, so we don’t need to keep referring to other disciplines. 

Your Soft Tissue Therapist at ReVive Petersfield has been extensively trained by Osteopaths & Physiotherapist which places your therapist in a very good position to treat you. 

This is why you should visit a Soft Tissue Therapist !

So when you think you may need a Physiotherapist, Osteopath or Chiropractor in Petersfield you may in fact be better to see you local Hampshire Soft Tissue Therapist instead.

WHY see a Soft Tissue Therapist Vs a Physiotherapist?

Good question and here’s the answer…

Generally, unless you see a specialist sports physio, Physiotherapy treatments are very much exercise prescriptions, they certainly are in the NHS arena, maybe a bit of Ultra Sound if you are lucky.

And that’s wrong in a lot of peoples opinions, including mine; they should be much more hands-on!

A typical NHS Physiotherapy appointment below

Diagnosis and here are some exercises. I’ll see you in a weeks time (often paid for by the Insurance company). You have session after session after session and take a long time to get better, if you do, mostly because you don’t do the exercises.

NOW take a Soft Tissue Therapist, I’ll  Assess you, give you Exercise Prescription, but what I’ll do if treat you in a very hands-on approach which will help the muscles enabling you to complete your rehab much more effectively, which should return you to health in a much quicker time frame.
