IASTM/Manual Therapy

Enhance Healing and Reduce Pain with Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization

This skilled myofascial intervention is designed to treat soft tissue and stimulate healing, providing relief from pain and discomfort.

Understanding IASTM

Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM) is a therapeutic treatment that utilizes specially designed tools to provide a mobilizing effect on scar tissue and myofascial adhesions. These instruments are used to address musculoskeletal pathology-related impairments and support the healing of soft tissues.

How Does IASTM Work?

IASTM uses either a curved or flat surface instrument to apply pressure to tight muscles and tendons. This technique stimulates healing by increasing blood flow to the affected area. It’s a practical manual therapy treatment aimed at relieving pain from soft-tissue injuries.

The IASTM technique introduces controlled microtrauma to the soft tissue area, which stimulates a local inflammatory response. This response initiates the body’s natural healing process, encouraging the production of proteins that repair damaged tissue.

The Graston Technique

One popular form of IASTM is the Graston Technique. This method employs a set of stainless-steel tools of various shapes and sizes that are used to detect and treat soft-tissue dysfunction.
