FAKTR is a system that combines several manual and instrument-assisted soft tissue techniques with functional rehabilitation.
FAKTR stands for Functional and Kinetic Treatment with Rehab. Two of the main tools used is IASTM (instrument-assisted soft tissue manipulation) and cupping.
How does it work?
The IASTM treatment is thought to stimulate connective tissue remodelling through resorption of excessive fibrosis, along with boosting repair and regeneration of collagen. In turn, this will result in the release and breakdown of scar tissue, adhesions, and fascial restrictions.
What results can you expect?
IASTM uses specially designed instruments to provide a mobilizing effect to soft tissue (e.g., scar tissue, myofascial adhesion) to decrease pain and improve range of motion.
