Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM)

Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization is a powerful tool for myofascial restriction. A fully trained physical therapist uses specially designed instrument to mobilize scar tissue and adhesions.  It allows a more intense but noninvasive way to effectively loosen restrictions, break up scar tissue and promote healing by the release of fibroblasts which synthesize collagen and elastin in the area to strengthen the injured areas.
