Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM)
IASTM is a treatment method to resolve pain and tightness in the body and takes myofascial release to the next level. It uses specially formed medical grade stainless steel tools to expose the abnormalities in the muscles and fascia such as scars, restrictions, and adhesions and allows for a more precise location identification of the area to treat. Scar tissue and adhesions are caused by a disruption and disorganization of collagen which is many times formed during the process of tendonitis and the repetitive re-injury and healing that takes place. IASTM allows for the production of new collagen and proper functional healing allowing the body to heal soft tissue injuries faster, more completely, and with improved function. IASTM technique can be applied to virtually any joint structure of the body which suffers from this disorganized healing process.
