Instrument Assisted Soft-Tissue Mobilization

Soft Tissue injuries can be debilitating. Discover how the IASTM Technique can help you.

Instrument Assisted Soft-Tissue Mobilization-IASTM

This technique allows our clinician to get as deep into the tissue as necessary to invoke change, yet be sensitive to patient pain tolerance. As the instrument is moved over the affected area and come in contact with adhesions, they break up scar tissue. In time, this process will reduce or eliminate the adhered fibers, restoring motion and eliminating pain associated with it. It will rebuild your soft tissue injury into healthy functioning tissue.

 

IASTM can also help soft-tissue injuries such as a strain, sprain, a blow to the body resulting in a contusion, or overuse.

 

Patients usually receive two treatments a week during a four-to-five week period. Most patients have positive response by the third to fourth treatment.

Clinically Proven:

IASTM, while enhancing the clinician's ability to detect fascial adhesions and restrictions, have been clinically proven to achieve quicker and better outcomes in treating both acute and chronic conditions, including:
  • Achilles Tendinosis/itis (ankle pain)

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (wrist pain)

  • Cervical Sprain/Strain (neck pain)

  • Fibromyalgia

  • Lateral Epicondylosis/itis (tennis elbow)

  • Lumbar Sprain/Strain (back pain)

  • Medial Epicondylosis/itis (golfer's elbow)

  • Patellofemoral Disorders (knee pain)

  • Plantar Fasciitis (foot pain)

  • Rotator Cuff Tendinosis/itis (shoulder pain)

  • Scar Tissue

  • Shin Splints

  • Trigger Finger

  • Women's Health (Post-Mastectomy & Caesarean Scarring)

While bruising and soreness is not the intent, both may occur during treatment. IASTM clinicians are trained to recognize these symptoms and adjust treatment intensity to minimize their occurrence, while realizing the benefits of the technique.
