What is a soft tissue contracture?



A soft tissue contracture is shortening of the muscle, tendons or ligaments that prevent normal movement. Spasticity is often the cause of muscle stiffness which can lead to permanent and painful shortening of the muscle. Other cause of soft tissue contractures include: Physiotherapy plays a vital role in restoring range of movement, relieving pain, preventing further muscle shortening and improving functional ability. Physiotherapy at Physio.co.uk for soft tissue contractures may involve:

  • Teaching the stretching exercises and positioning techniques to family or caregivers to relieve pain and promote independence
  • Advice on orthotics and splints to help to keep the soft tissues stretched properly
  • Hydrotherapy treatment will help to relieve pain and stiffness and increase range of movement.
  • Advice on botox
