A restriction in soft tissue causes limitations and altered movement. Resulting in compensation, some structures working harder and differently than they are supposed to.

Restriction = compensation = altered movement = reinforced faulty motor patterns.

To effectively treat the soft tissue restriction we must find the specific tissue or tissues that are restricted and then perform specific movement to reinforce quality movement patterns.

Find your restrictions before they become a problem with our personal training team at health1stgym Slatyford Newcastle
