INSTRUMENTAL ASSISTED SOFT TISSUE MOBILIZATION

Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilisation or Simply IASTM is a new range of ergonomically designed tool that allows clinicians to efficiently detect and treat fascial restrictions, encourage rapid localization and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis, chronic inflammation, or degeneration with appropriate amount of pressure.

HOW IT WORKS

Instruments effectively break down fascial restrictions and scar tissue. The introduction of controlled microtrauma to affected soft tissue structure causes the stimulation of a local inflammatory response. Microtrauma initiates reabsorption of inappropriate fibrosis or excessive scar tissue and facilitates a cascade of healing activities resulting in remodeling of affected soft tissue structures. Adhesions within the soft tissue which may have developed as a result of surgery, immobilization, repeated strain or other mechanisms, are broken down allowing full functional restoration to occur
