The Fascial Abrasion Technique involves the use of a tool to breakdown scar tissue and resolve fascial restrictions. It's used to treat painful conditions resulting from injury or overuse disorders such as carpal tunnel syndrome, plantar fasciitis, cervical and lumbar strain, tendinosis, knee pain, tennis and golfers' elbow, and more. Fascial abrasion provides a controlled micro trauma that stimulates specialized nerve endings in the skin and fascia that help to normalize fascial tone.

FAQ

What's involved in Fascial Abrasion?

A specially designed instrument, known as the Fascial Abrasion Technique (FAT) tool is used to both identify and to treat areas of fascial restriction. The contoured shape of the instrument allows our practitioners to use the tool to scan the body and locate the presence of fascial restrictions. The same instrument is then used to apply precise pressure to reduce fascial tension.

How does fascial abrasion work?

Fascial abrasion provides a controlled micro trauma that stimulates specialized nerve endings in the skin and fascia that help to normalize fascial tone. The tool is also used to treat scar tissue that may be causing pain or limiting motion, or to stimulate a local inflammatory response that supports rebuilding of injured soft tissue.

Which conditions can be treated with fascial abrasion?

It's used to treat painful conditions resulting from injury or overuse disorders such as:

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Cervical and lumbar strain
  • Tendonosis (Achilles, rotator cuff)
