We are happy to now offer Fascial Stretch Therapy (FST) in both Milton and Burlington with Dr. Stephanie Tabbert!
Fascial Stretch Therapy (FST) is a pain-free, hands-on treatment that targets the body’s most prevalent tissue; the fascia.
What is Fascia?
The connective tissue that wraps and connects muscles, joints, nerves, bones, and organs. Similar to muscle fascia can get tight and bound down, however it responds better to movement and stretching and than to traditional massage and other therapies.
Benefits of FST include:
-increased flexibility and mobility
-decreased joint compression and impingement
-improved sports performance and muscle function
-increased blood supply
-reduced risk of injury
-reduced mental and physical stress
-improved sex life
FST is compatible with other forms of treatment and training. Results are often seen within 1-3 sessions and accumulate over time. Combined with exercises to help maintain mobility and strengthen your body in its new range FST will help you move and feel better for whatever your needs may be.

Note: please wear athletic/stretchable clothing to FST assessments and treatments
Note: FST is offered by our licensed Chiropractor; if you have extended health coverage for Chiropractic care FST sessions will be covered. You do not need a referral to be assessed or treated by a Chiropractor; however, some insurance companies do require a physician’s referral to get the cost reimbursed.
