Instrument-Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM) is a manual therapy technique that utilizes specialized instruments to detect and treat various soft tissue dysfunctions.
The instruments used, such as stainless steel tools, are specifically designed to target problematic areas effectively. By applying controlled pressure and specific movements, IASTM promotes the breakdown of scar tissue, stimulates blood flow, and encourages tissue remodelling, leading to improved function and reduced pain.
a) Pain Relief: By breaking down scar tissue and adhesions, IASTM helps reduce pain and discomfort caused by overuse injuries, strains, and other soft tissue dysfunctions.
b) Improved Range of Motion: Through its ability to enhance tissue remodeling, IASTM can restore flexibility and improve the range of motion, allowing patients to regain their normal functional capacity.
c) Enhanced Healing: By promoting blood circulation and tissue regeneration, IASTM accelerates the healing process, helping individuals recover from injuries more efficiently.
At E3 Chiropractic + Wellness in Saskatoon, patients can expect personalized treatment plans incorporating IASTM, among other evidence-based therapies.
The chiropractors and physiotherapists at E3 understand that every patient is unique, and they tailor their approach to address individual needs and goals.
Combining IASTM with other modalities, such as chiropractic adjustments, exercise rehabilitation, and patient education, provides comprehensive care that maximizes the potential for recovery.
