Why Stretch Therapy

Fascial Stretch Therapy (FST) is a type of stretching technique that targets the body’s fascia, which is the connective tissue that surrounds muscles, bones, and organs. The goal of FST is to increase flexibility, range of motion, and performance while reducing pain and tension. It typically involves a combination of passive and active stretching, as well as other manual techniques such as compression, mobilization, and manipulation. FST is typically performed by trained therapists, and it’s often used in combination with other therapies such as massage, physical therapy, and chiropractic. This service is provided by our experts at PhysioDNA, which is a clinic located in Toronto at 116 Spadina Avenue, Unit #201 in Toronto and 278 Church Street in Oakville.

    What exactly is Fascia?

    Fascia is a network of layered connective tissue that surrounds muscles, bones and joints. A joint capsule is also a connective tissue structure that surrounds joints and is involved in optimizing the mechanical function of the joint as well as providing nutrients. Restricted fascia and joint capsules can lead to conditions such as osteoarthritis, increased muscle tightness, strains, tendinopathies, headaches, scar tissue formation, decreased blood flow and reduced energy levels.
