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 exercise based prescriptions, 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 which places your therapist in a very good position to treat you.
This is why you should visit a Soft Tissue Therapist !
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.
