L.A.S.T

(Ligamentous Articular Strain Technique)

Ligamentous Articular Strain most accurately describes the somatic dysfunction that occurs in the ligamentous structures that surround a joint. The tension in all of the ligaments, capsule and surrounding fascial tissue of a normal joint is balanced and is used to center adjacent bones in their articular grooves and spaces. This suspension system keeps the bones from being positioned too close together,  pulled too far apart, shifted from one side to the other, twisted or bent sideways. When an injury occurs, the joint becomes displaced beyond this physiologic position, and some, if not all, of the surrounding ligaments become stressed and un-balanced.
L.A.S.T incorporates aspects of Myofascial Release techniques, Positional Release techniques, Biodynamic Craniosacral techniques, Visceral Manipulation and Periosteal Release techniques and is intended to correct stressed and un-balanced ligamentous structures. L.A.S.T. is based on current scientific research. 

L.A.S.T. is one form of treatment which attempts to help stimulate the innate self correcting healing properties of the body in order to return it to its pre-injured (homeostatic) state.
