Instrument-Assisted Connective Tissue Therapy - ConnecTX
ConnecTX is the latest form of instrument-assisted soft-tissue mobilization (IASTM). The treatment uses a hand-held instrument to enable detection and treatment of scar tissue and fascial restrictions afflicting soft tissue. Treatment includes the introduction of micro-trauma to the affected area to break down scar tissue and adhesions and to trigger a local inflammatory response which, in turn, initiates the reabsorption of scar tissue facilitating the healing process. Patients will ultimately experience enhanced ranges of motion and increased flexibility.
Trauma or malfunction of fascia can create an environment of poor cellular efficiency, necrosis, disease, pain and dysfunction throughout the body, profoundly influencing cellular health and the immune system. ConnecTX Therapy reduces treatment time, fosters rehabilitation and recovery, lessens or eliminates the need for anti-inflammatory medications, resolves chronic conditions previously thought to be permanent and enables patients’ reengagement in daily activities.
The instrument itself is specially designed to fit the contours of the body, aiding in diagnosis and effectively treating pain and its causes. Conditions most commonly treated with ConnecTX Therapy include sprain/strains, nerve entrapments, myofascial trigger points, over-use syndromes, scar tissue adhesions and tendonopathies.
