Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM)

The IASTM treatment technique is a therapy approach which provides patients from a number of injuries and disorders.  During treatment the clinician uses the IASTM instruments to treat not only the painful but other areas that may contribute to the problem.  The treatment is non-invasive, which means that the instruments are only used on the skin to affect the underlying soft tissue.  During treatment, the patient feels the adnormal "bumpy" or "rough" tissue as the instruments glide over the skin, and notices the "smoothing out" effect over the course of the treatment as the abnormal tissue is eliminated.  Patients occasionally experience some bruising in connection with the treatment which is visible evidence that the body is addressing the problem areas.
