Functional Fascial Taping

Functional Fascial Taping (FFT) can immediately decrease pain and increase range of motion, to encourage muscle firing and normal movement patterns. The technique has a unique objective assessment procedure and tape application to modify pain and to provide tension/load at rest, active increased load (patient self administered treatment) and frequent alterations in load with movement with activity. This non-invasive treatment encourages practitioners' treatments to 'hold' for longer and to rehabilitate in a pain free environment.
