Fascial Stretch Therapy Q&A
What is Fascial Stretch Therapy™?
Fascial Stretch Therapy (FST™) is a pain-free technique in functional medicine designed to assist with stimulating muscle stretches that make long-lasting changes in your body. FST sessions at Denver Sports Recovery can promote improved muscle health whether you’re recovering from an injury or are struggling with the effects of:
- Stiff joints
- Poor posture
- Tight muscles
- Lack of exercise
The goal of treatment is to improve the flexibility of your muscles and connective tissue, or fascia, by focusing on the fascial lines that wrap around your organs, nerves, and muscles.
Who can benefit from fascial stretch therapy?
Whether you’re a weekend warrior or a professional athlete, FST at Denver Sports Recovery can improve your physical fitness and performance at any age or level.
By stretching the versatile fascial connections, you can enhance your existing training regimen or prepare your body for a new program. The FST system is also an ideal complement to a recovery program following an injury.
What happens during an FST appointment?
During your initial FST consultation, your dedicated Denver Sports Recovery specialist discusses your medical history, your fitness level, and existing symptoms or performance concerns.
To perform the stretching activities, your specialist incorporates straps that hold one leg in place, while the other leg goes through a series of stretching exercises. This technique ensures your muscles and fascia get a true stretch.
You can expect to go through a specific set of stretches during each visit with your Denver Sports Recovery specialist. Multiple sessions are necessary to help you achieve improvement in functionality and performance.
How long until I can see results?
After your very first treatment, you’ll see an improvement in your overall mobility. Fascial stretching isn’t painful and may even help you to fully relax during your treatment. As with most things in life, consistency is key. While you may experience results after one session, adhering to the treatment plan outlined by your practitioner will help ensure continued progress.
What benefits can I expect?
By incorporating FST regularly, your muscle functionality continues to improve. You can also enjoy benefits like:
Feeling more comfortable and relaxed in bed enables you to drift off peacefully and can aid in staying asleep.
Releasing the tension held in the muscles can help signal to the brain and body that they no longer need to remain constantly on alert.
Allowing the muscles to sit in healthy, neutral positions helps ensure your body is being held in place correctly rather than improperly compensating for an injury or tightness.
Enhanced athletic performance:
Freeing your body to move in the way it was meant to aids in dexterity and proper form while also removing mental barriers that can arise due to fear of pain or discomfort.
Your Denver Sports Recovery specialist monitors your progress through each session to determine how long you need to participate in the therapy to achieve your desired results.
