Who is a candidate for Fascial Stretch Therapy (FST)? Anyone! I’ve performed FST with individuals ranging from 7 years old up to 80 years old! Many people implement FST as part of their weekly, biweekly or monthy activity routine.I previously used to stretch a Grade 7 hockey goalie
His hamstrings were so tight he slept with his legs bent. I stretched him regularly during the hockey season and he was finally able to sleep with his legs straight! He was a great candidate and I eventually ended up stretching multiple players from his hockey team. They all felt that it helped their legs feel lighter and that they could perform better on the ice.
With this goalie in particular, I created him a specialized home program of stretches, foam rolling techniques as well as core strengthening exercises.I always told him that he was leaps and bounds beyond his fellow teammates and other athletes his age when it comes to having a proper recovery routine to keep his body healthy and avoid injury!
Unfortunately sometimes it takes something having to go wrong to seek help, but once he started working with me he took away so much knowledge that he can continue implementing throughout his hockey career!
