ConnecTX therapy is an effective soft tissue instrument-assisted mobilization (IASTM) technique that utilizes specialized instruments to gently massage/scrape the skin, breaking up fibrous muscular adhesions to help decrease pain, increase blood flow, and promote healing in the connective tissue.
ConnecTX therapy uses linear and cross-friction massage, which involves brushing or rubbing against the grain of the affected area. The fibrous muscular adhesions, trigger points, and scar tissue are broken down with the goal of restoring healthy function to the muscles, tendons, ligaments, and nerves affected by inflammation, injuries, and various traumas.
Treatment time typically ranges from 5 to 10 minutes depending on the size of the treatment area. An instrument will be used to treat not only painful areas but also the surrounding areas that may be contributing to your condition. You may experience tenderness/soreness as well as areas that are “rough or “bumpy.” These are the dysfunctional tissue and over the course of treatment, you will notice these areas smoothing out allowing for a decrease in pain and an increase in function.
Some patients have an immediate response to treatment while others need 3-6 treatments for noticeable results. After treatment, you will experience a decrease in inflammation, pain/discomfort, muscle tightness/spasms, enhanced mobility, flexibility, and accelerated recovery.
Some patients may experience slight redness of the skin with possible bruising and mild local discomfort in the treatment area. ConnecTX is an effective alternative to medications and has helped many avoid painful injections and surgeries. Home recommendations and exercises will be discussed to help speed up healing.
