Fascial Counterstrain Treatment
FCS treatment addresses dysfunction in your deep connective tissue or fascia. Fascial dysfunction can impact all of the systems that contribute to spinal instability including the bones and ligaments of the spine, muscles of the spine and the nerves that control these muscles. FCS uses a combination of gentle tissue glides and comfortable positioning guided by a system of tender points to drain swelling and improve the mobility of tissues. In the case of spinal instability FCS can restore normal resting length and tone of spinal muscles, bones and ligaments and improve neural control of the muscles. In addition, FCS can help treat your venous and lymphatic system to help reduce inflammation and swelling in the painful area and increase blood flow via the arterial system to promote healing and prevent further degeneration. Using this multi system approach FCS is a powerful tool to decrease pain and optimize the environment in your spine for healing.
