What is Stretch Therapy?

Fascial Stretch Therapy is a new, comprehensive method called Fascial Stretch Therapy (FST) concentrates on the fascia (Connective tissue), that surrounds the muscles, bones, and joints. Through gentle manipulation and stretching of your fascia, this therapy seeks to increase your general mobility and muscular flexibility.

It is a highly successful therapy that helps with recovery, injury prevention, stress management, and posture and movement quality improvement.  
FAQ


HOW CAN I PREVENT INJURIES WHEN I EXERCISE?
The best way to prevent injuries is to show up early and be prepared.  A good piece of life advice too.  If you arrive to exercise early, you have enough time to “warm up” your body and stretch before you place the heavier demands of the activity on your muscles and joints.  

These rules apply to vigorous sports/exercises and recreational activities such as gardening, walking and shoveling, painting and renovating around the house, and “housework”.

WHAT IS AN RSI & HOW WILL FASCIAL STRETCH HELP?
RSI is an acronym for Repetitive Strain Injury. It is a loose categorization of injuries which are believed to originate from repetitious movements; repetitious movements can occur during sports, recreational activities (gardening), activities of daily living (driving), occupational demands (prolonged sitting or heavy repetitive tasks).  

Repeating the same movement patterns over and over can cause imbalances in the muscles and fascia because your body is living tissue and it will adapt to "whatever you ask it to do" most often.

Fascial Stretching helps to address these imbalances to release the tight areas and allow the other tissues to to move better with less resistance


WHAT IS  S.M.A.R.T ?

You are, because you have chosen to do something proactive for your health!  

S.M.A.R.T. is an acronym we are using in the Rehabilitration circles to help promote active lifestyle changes.  It stands for Stretch, Move, Add it up, Reduce strain, Talk to a Professional.  These are the key ingredients to making the changes to a more active and healthy lifestyle.

An active and healthy lifestyle is accompanied by mobility.  When you move well you feel well and all of our team at Physio FX is dedicated to the restoration and/or enhancement of mobility and functionality.

What are the benefits of Fascial Stretching?

"Fascia" is the connective tissue that runs throughout your body supporting muscles, joints and ligaments, internal organs and even nervous tissues. Fascial Stretching works to mobilize this tissue and therefore can assist with improved flexibility, postural alignment, breathing and relaxation, and reduced pain.

Muscle and joint mobility contribute to improved athletic performance and significantly reduce the probability of injury. Reducing overused and tight fascia helps to prevent and treat repetitive strain injuries.

Improved breathing helps to bring more oxygen to your body; additionally, deeper breathing stimulates the release of seretonin and promotes stress relief (an essential component to achieving improved wellness)

How is Stretch Therapy Different?

That is a great question!!! Our Stretch Therapy Team works one-on-one with you in the gym area (which is spacious and filled with natural light). They will work with you to develop an individual plan to help you achieve your goals.

Our therapists are all University graduates with Kinesiology backgrounds, which means they have extensive understanding of Anatomy, Physiology and Exercise Science. Additionally, our therapists work closely with the other disciplines providing expert resourses for them and for you.

There is no need to get undressed because all you need to wear is comfortably fitting clothing that will stretch with you.
