Athens PA ConnecTX Therapy

Chiropractic Athens PA ConnecTX Therapy

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. Contact our Athens PA chiropractic clinic to learn more.

How does ConnecTX therapy work in Athens PA?

ConnecTX therapy uses 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.

What Can I expect during treatments?

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.

Conditions that respond favorably to ConnecTX:

  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Shin splints
  • Muscle Sprains/Strains
  • Carpal Tunnel/Trigger Finger
  • Piriformis Syndrome
  • Golf/Tennis Elbow
  • Rotator Cuff Tendonitis
  • Scar Tissue
  • IT Band Syndrome
  • Muscle Sprains/Strains
  • Myofascial Pain and Restrictions

What can I expect after treatments?

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.

Are there any side effects?

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 your healing.
