Although remedial soft tissue therapy cannot cure many of these chronic medical conditions, it is very effective at alleviating the secondary symptoms that these conditions cause. Remedial soft tissue therapy works very well in a complementary role alongside medical procedures to alleviate soft tissue symptoms associated with these conditions. By restoring postural and muscle imbalances, increasing range of movement, and alleviating pain and stress, the therapist can help the sufferer overcome or cope better with their condition.
