A unique system of manual therapy has proved to be highly successful in the treatment of common neuro-myofascial imbalances, disorders, and dysfunctions. First developed in the early 1990s, the method is now recognized for restoring and maintaining healthy neurological, musculoskeletal, and fascial systems.
Why Fascial Stretch Therapy?
IMPROVED RANGE OF MOTION
Fascial Stretch Therapy (FST) is a system of assisted stretching that focuses on the muscles, joints, and connective tissue. With the client on a treatment table, the therapist will help you stabilize your body as you are gently assisted into specific stretches to help facilitate relaxation and movement into your joints and body. This therapy differs from other flexibility programs because each stretch begins with a light traction of the joint; This allows for a deeper stretch by creating more space in the joint.
FST is an excellent treatment choice for those wanting to improve flexibility and mobility, recover from training, and prevent injury.
Other benefits include:
Reduce muscle tension and risk of injury
Improved posture & muscle function
Improved sport-specific performance
Increase muscular strength and endurance
Increase balance and symmetry of the body
Reduce muscular soreness and fatigue
Fascial Stretch Therapy was popularized with athletes such as professional golfers, wrestlers, basketball players, and runners but is also very beneficial for anyone needing more flexibility, such as office workers, manual laborers, and just generally stiff individuals.
FST is also a potent therapy used to treat many conditions such as facet joint dysfunctions, tight hips, rotator cuff injuries, muscle strains, chronic headaches, knee tracking issues, plantar fasciitis, and pinched nerves.
