What is Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization?

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.

Benefits of IASTM

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.
