(MENAFN - GetNews) Uses and teaches a variety of techniques to treat pain at its source. California, USA - ASTR (Advanced Soft Tissue Release) is a biopsychosocial treatment model that utilizes unique ASTR instruments, maneuvers, theories, and methodologies to treat pain. ASTR treatment includes working on multiple aspects, including: scar tissue, fascia restriction, trigger points, muscle spasms, ergonomics, gait, exercise, nutrition, inflammation, stress management, and even behavior modification.
The story of ASTR commenced in 2011, when Dr. Jacobs's wife woke up, unable to open her jaw (a condition called lock-jaw). She could not even open her mouth enough to eat or drink, so Dr. Jacobs tried some traditional physical techniques to try and alleviate her pain, but was discouraged, as none of these techniques proved successful. His wife, in a desperate situation, asked him to try anything to relieve her pain. At this point, Dr. Jacobs started experimenting on his wife's jaw, with some unique maneuvers. Surprisingly, only a few minutes later, she was able to open her jaw, without any pain. Dr. Jacobs's technique had worked, and had only taken a few minutes.
After that, ASTR began to develop, as Dr. Jacobs was motivated to adapt this concept into maneuvers to treat the entire body, and relieve his patients' pain. Since 2011, ASTR has grown into a comprehensive specialty that includes a variety of ASTR tools and over 125 maneuvers that treat ailments over the whole body. ASTR specialty continues to grow through on-going research and findings.
ASTR Institute has a number of achievements to its name, which include: reviewing 16,145 studies, integrating more than 420 studies into ASTR treatment methods, having more than 45 studies in support of ASTR's treatment model, and having more than 300 real treatment and testimonial videos on its database.
ASTR is an innovative approach, which is significantly different from traditional medical methods. Traditional approaches for treating soft tissue pain utilize methods like heat/cold packs, electrical simulation, ultrasound, massage, stretching exercise, and pain medication. These methods can provide temporary relief, but, more often than not, the pain returns, because these techniques are focused on treating not the root cause, but only the symptoms.
With ASTR, the evaluation and treatment are focused on finding and treating the source of the problem, rather than merely the symptoms. Treatment is pain-free, and provides lasting relief.
The services that are provided and taught at ASTR Institute, are:
Instrument Assisted Soft-Tissue Mobilization (IASTM) a therapeutic technique that uses specified instruments to promote mobilization of restricted tissue. Specialized instruments can aid in the ease of muscle pain, restore mobility, and treat myofascial restrictions.
Scar tissue release scar tissue forms throughout the body, in response to tissue damage, in order to temporarily repair an injury site until stronger, more permanent tissue is made. It can form when the body is subject to injury, stress, disease, surgery, an accident, prolonged poor posture, and improper body mechanics. Occasionally, the healing process is disturbed, and too much scar tissue is formed, placing excessive pressure on surrounding muscles, blood vessels, nerves, bones, and organs. ASTR treats pain in a gentle, effective, and natural way, by releasing scar tissue, trigger points, and fascia restrictions. ASTR's patented tools assist in releasing and removing scar tissue, and ASTR clinicians are trained in effective techniques that do not cause additional pain or stress to the body.
Myofascial release Fascia is a strong, connective tissue that wraps around the entire body from head to toe. Normally, fascia is elastic, and able to stretch and shorten in response to body movements. Accidents, traumas, surgeries, scar tissue, stress, poor posture, and body mechanics can decrease the fascia's elasticity, resulting in pain and limited motion. Myofascial release is a form of manual therapy, where a clinician's hands are used to achieve movement in fascia. The technique involves the use of gentle, sustained pressure over thirty to fifty minutes, to release fascia tightness.
