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 dislpacement, all of which can be addressed with ASTR treatment.
