What is Fascial Stretch Therapy (FST)?
Fascial Stretch Therapy (FST) is a system of assisted stretching which focuses on the muscles, joints, and connective tissue. With the client on a treatment table, comfortable straps are applied to stabilize inactive limbs and body parts to facilitate complete relaxation and effectiveness.
Fascia is a network of layered white connective tissue that surrounds muscles, bones and joints. The joint capsule that surrounds joints is involved in optimizing the mechanical function of the joint and is also part of the fascial network. When fascia and joint capsules are restricted, muscle tightness, strains, and tears can occur, contributing to scar tissue formation, which inhibits movement patterns further.

What are the benefits of FST?
What makes this therapy different from other flexibility programs is that each stretch begins with a light traction of the joint being treated. This allows for a deeper stretch by creating more space in joint. This is an excellent treatment choice for those wanting to improve flexibility and mobility, recover from training, prevent injury, and improve athletic performance.
FST is also a very powerful therapy that can be used to treat many conditions such as disc herniation, facet joint dysfunctions, tight hips, rotator cuff injuries, chronic headaches, knee tracking issues, plantar fasciitis, and pinched nerves. Patients benefit from this technique as it restores, improves and maintains mobility as well as contributes to pain reduction and well being.
