Fascial Abrasion Technique at SPORTS CLINICAL


What is Fascial Abrasion Technique™

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 mobilisation uses a specialised, patented tool called the Fascial Abrasion Technique™ Tool or FAT-Tool.  Fascial Abrasion Technique™ is used for general conditional and has also been highly successful in use in Elite Athletics, Professional American Football in the USA, Canada, Sweden and a highlight at the British Fascia Symposium.

The Benefits of FAT-Tool Soft Tissue Mobilisation

Tissue mobilisation using the FAT-Tool is a quick and highly effective tool for Healthcare providers and Therapist to improve quality of movement and normalise fascial mobility for their patients and clients 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 Fascial Abrasion Technique™ involves the use of a tool to break down scar tissue and resolve fascial restrictions. Fascial Abrasion Technique™ is used to treat painful conditions resulting from injury or overuse disorders such as carpal tunnel syndrome, plantar fasciitis, cervical and lumbar strain, tendinosis (Achilles, rotator cuff) patella-femoral knee pain and tennis and golfer’s elbow.

The FAT-Tool

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. The Fascial Abrasion Technique™ works by quickly identifying and loosening up the layers of fascia that separate muscles and soft tissue structures. The ‘teasing’ effect enabled with the patented textured surface allows hundreds of micro-stretches to be applied to the fascia. This stimulates mechanoreceptors in the skin and fascia and creates a change in tissue tone and fluid dynamics. There are also considerable metabolic effects such as increase in blood flow and microfusion gained with proper use of the Fascial Abrasion Technique™.

What our clients say

"Although I do not live locally i am happy to make the 40 mile round trip regularly for a sports massage which works.  Dean is professional, knowledgeable and clearly an expert in his field.  He listens, and his treatments vary according to what is needed at the time. As somebody who wants to be a better runner I am grateful that Dean sorted my original injury out and now I go regularly to keep potential issues at bay. I find his advice invaluable and if I am successful in completing my first marathon I know that Dean will have played a huge part in that. I cannot recommend him highly enough."
