ConnecTX Therapy is one of the instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM) system used by the clinicians here in Herald Square Chiropractic and Sport. It utilizes a double-beveled edged instrument to comfortably fit the varied tissues and shapes and curves of the patient’s body while allowing optimal positioning and flexibility for the clinician to treat patients. ConnecTX Therapy utilizes evidence-based, research-reflective data to achieve continuous clinical improvement via NIH’s PROMIS® (National Institute of Health’s Patient Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System). It is also duly registered with the FDA. Every ConnecTX clinician completes extensive training, achieves certification, and contributes research to advance and optimize techniques and outcomes. Dr. Cueto is a registered and certified ConnecTX clinician and has contributed to research and data for the NIH. Dr. Hom is currently completing his certification for ConnecTX Therapy. ConnecTX Therapy is also the only instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization developed and used by Doctors of Chiropractic.
For patients, when your chiropractor practices ConnecTX therapy, you are able to get better, faster and achieve a complete pain relief with improved range of motion and increased flexibility.
ConnecTX therapy is a safe procedure with minimal side effects when properly executed by a certified practitioner. Patient tolerance, treatment intensity, and frequency are taken into consideration to minimize the likelihood of adverse effects. However, as with almost any treatment plan, your doctor should discuss possible side effects with you.
There are possible side effects include inflammation. The inflammatory processes can be stimulated during the treatment process, and symptoms can temporarily increase. Usually mild to moderate, these are easily controlled with cryotherapy (chilling the affected area) in either the practitioner’s office or at home. Other potential side effects include redness, bruising, petechiae, ecchymosis, welting and soreness. Please consult with your trained ConnecTX practitioner if you have additional questions.
