A type of stretching that targets the fascia, the connective tissue that surrounds muscles, bones, and joints. Through using traction, the entire joint and joint capsule are addressed, this helps to remove restrictions which can help with increasing range of motion and stimulation lubrication within the joint. It also addresses the plane/lines of fascia, not just the individual muscle. Quite simply it like wearing your tightest pair of jeans and then exchanging them for a comfortable pair of track pants after having a FST session
Anyone can benefit from having a session of FST, professional athletes, weekend warriors, people with tight hips or shoulders, people with desk jobs or low back pain. It increases range of motion, can improve performance, posture, and muscle function to name a few benefits. By improving function, pain can be eliminated or improved.
