The Técnica Gavilán System unlocks the complicated puzzle of patient progression by stimulating soft tissue and facilitating the components of fitness.  This approach creates directed rehabilitation and enhances athletic performance, helping athletes feel and perform their best.

Técnica Gavilán is a specialized protocol that utilizes Instrument Soft Tissue Mobilization (ISTM) to improve the restoration and healing of soft tissue pathologies.  These instruments, which can detect soft tissue restrictions altering the musculo-skeletal system, will decrease pain, increase range of motion, and enhance athletic performance.

The Patient

  • Increased motion with decreased pain
  • Rehabilitation is shortened
  • Strength returns earlier
  • Increased flexibility

The Athlete

  • Shorter recovery time
  • Facilitates power and strength
  • Enhances performance
  • Conditioning may continue

The Therapist

  • Easily cleaned, easy to manipulate
  • Multiple applications for various soft tissue impairments
  • Extends the life of your hands and longevity of your career
