Soft Tissue Therapy for the Lower Limb is a visual guide to understanding and applying massage, stretching, soft tissue release (STR), and trigger point release techniques for common lower limb conditions.

Chartered physiotherapist Jane Johnson breaks down the most appropriate soft tissue techniques and strengthening exercises for 31 musculoskeletal conditions affecting the hip, buttock, thigh, knee, leg, ankle, and foot. Step-by-step instructions and full-color photos demonstrate techniques, while tips highlight effective practices and common errors.

Along with information about appropriate treatments for each lower limb condition, this ebook shows how to assess lower limb posture, demonstrate simple and safe strengthening exercises that patients can perform with minimal equipment and without supervision, and measure the effectiveness of your treatment.

After reading the ebook, certified professionals can take the companion CE exam to earn continuing education credits.
