What ASTR Treats?

Advanced Soft Tissue Release® (ASTR) is used to treat many types of soft tissue dysfunctions. In the body, soft tissue includes tendons, ligaments, fascia, skin, fibrous tissue, fat, synovial membranes, muscle nerves, and blood vessels. These tissues surround, connect, and support bones, structures, and organs of the body. When these soft tissues are not working as they should, it can lead to scar tissue, fascia restriction, trigger points, muscle spasms, and joint displacement, all of which can be addressed with ASTR treatment.

What is ASTR?

ASTR (Biopsychosocial model) is a new treatment approach developed by Dr. Joseph Jacobs, Doctor of Physical Therapy, that treats pain at its source. Our patented tools gently break down scar tissue and fascia restriction, while reducing the inflammation that often causes chronic pain. ASTR addresses proper nutrition, inflammation, laboratory testing, posture, body mechanics, ergonomics, lifestyle changes and exercises.
