Soft Tissue Release Certification – Advanced Soft Tissue Release (ASTR) Certification
ASTR clinicians are members of an exclusive community of ASTR-certified providers. Holding this certification is evidence of a provider’s extensive training and high competency in treating soft tissue injuries with the ASTR approach.
What to Expect from the ASTR Certification Program
A-Z Knowledge: The Advanced Soft Tissue Release certification program is one of the most comprehensive training programs available. Similar to how an iPhone includes many different technologies, the ASTR specialty includes many popular, older manual techniques and applies them in combination with the latest ASTR research. This leads to faster, more efficient results.
The ASTR Certification process educates clinicians on all aspects of properly evaluating and treating soft tissue dysfunctions using ASTR’s methodology, advanced manual therapy maneuvers, treatment protocols, and discharge plans.
Preparedness: The ASTR certification program prepares healthcare providers to holistically address the both common and rare soft tissue dysfunctions that affect the neuromuscular and musculoskeletal systems. These dysfunctions are seen by in outpatient clinics on a daily basis!
