Coming to Performance Rehab Associates – FAT-Tool Course with Dr. Mark Scappaticci on Friday, September 12, 2014
What is Fascial Abrasion Technique and what are the potential benefits?
-Fascial Abrasion Technique involves releasing movement-restricted fascial tension in underlying soft tissue. This technique specifically targets and loosens the fascia that surrounds and interconnects muscle tissue that when tight, can restrict range of motion and impair quality of movement. Performance tissue mobilization uses a specialized, patented tool called the Fascial Abrasion Technique Tool or FAT-Tool. Correct use of the FAT-Tool allows you to quickly solve and release troublesome areas of tissue tightness and restricted range of motion and in so doing, support improved patient outcomes.
-The revolutionary design of the FAT tool features multiple treatment surfaces and edges in an all-in-one, tool. In addition, tissue tension release is enhanced with the unique, patented textured finish, which allows for superior grip of the fascia with less direct pressure applied to the surface of the skin.
-This course will teach healthcare providers tissue tension assessment and fascial mobilization techniques, using the FAT-Tool. The 1 day course will include a mixture of classroom presentations and practical lab sessions that will allow for extensive practice, with hands-on feedback and guidance from the course instructors. During the practical lab sessions, participants will learn how to perform and interpret tissue tension assessments and the appropriate associated tissue mobilization techniques. Extensive opportunities for feedback and practice in the hands-on lab sessions is a key feature of this course, ensuring that participants develop assessment and tissue mobilization skills and techniques that will translate directly to improved outcomes for their patients.
