FASCIAL STRETCH THERAPY (FST OR STRETCH TO WIN)

FST is a research based stretching technique that focuses on the bigger picture of fascial continuities or trains, rather than isolated stretching of muscles. It has been integrated into other disciplines such as physical therapy, pilates, chiropractic care, massage, acupuncture and naturopathic medicine. The fascial stretching technique has evolved into a treatment of choice for a large number of common musculoskeletal conditions as well as being used for improvement or maintenance of athletic performance. The technique involves contract-relax patterns as well as the use of traction on the limb being stretched, in order to achieve a deeper and more beneficial stretch. At Legacy Medical Centers, FST is very popular among athletes that are looking to stay in shape, prevent injury, and perform their best.
