King Chiropractic is well-known for being the “go to” Chiropractor for soft tissue work in Wilmington, NC and we are excited to introduce The Fascial Abrasion Technique Tool (FAT-Tool) to our current and future patients. The FAT-Tool is an improved and patented design that differs other soft tissue mobilization tools on the market to promote lasting pain relief and help restore range of motion for our patients.

The Fascial Abrasion Technique involves the use of a FAT-Tool that targets and loosens muscle tension that often restricts range of motion and impairs quality of movement.

Why do our patients love these new tools?



In short, better results with minimal discomfort. The FAT-Tool mobilizes soft tissues without causing damage or bruising that often occur with other soft tissue mobilization tools. The FAT-tool helps to quickly and effectively release muscle tension and improve the quality of movement for those are suffering from painful conditions.


How does FAT Tool Technology differ from other Fascial Tools?

The FAT-Tool is much different than other soft tissue mobilization tools. Unlike tools such as Graston, ASYM, IASTYM, SASTM, and the Fibroblaster that have a smooth surface, the FAT-Tool has a unique patented textured surface that allows for maximal tissue tension release without excessive pressure, pain and without bruising. These attributes maximize the ability of the FAT-Tool to loosen areas of increased fascial tension and stimulate the local environment, improving fluid dynamics.

Common Treatment With Fascial Abrasion Technique Tool

The FAT-Tool™ is used to help treat patients who are experiencing pain from injury or disorders that arise from overuse. This technique is ideal for patients who are experiencing the following conditions:

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Cervical and Lumbar Strain
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Tendonitis
  • Knee Pain
  • Tennis or Golfers elbow

What are FAT-Tools?

The FAT Tool is a patented tool that is specially designed to identify and treat areas where there is fascial restriction. The tool has a contoured shape that helps health professionals locate the problem areas and then treat these areas by applying precise pressure.


The FAT-Tool can be used to treat scar tissue that is causing pain or restricting range of motion. FAT-Tools can also stimulate a local inflammatory response in order to support the healing and rebuilding process for injured soft tissue.
