• Instrument Assisted

    IASTM (Instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization) is a non-invasive treatment has been proven effective for a number of chronic soft tissue conditions including Plantar Fasciitis, Achilles Tendinosis, IT Band Syndrome, Shin Splints, Knee Pain, and Hip Pain.

    Rather than just treating the symptoms presented by these conditions, the IASTM process targets the physiological source of the pain or injury. IASTM effectively deals with scarred or degenerative tissue that can occur after injuries in muscles, tendons or ligaments. IASTM stimulates the return of healthy muscle and tissue. When combined with stretching and strengthening exercises, chronic soft tissue pain and discomfort become a thing of the past.

    The following conditions typically respond well to IASTM:

      • Carpal tunnel syndrome
      • DeQuervain's tenosynovitis
      • IT band syndrome
      • Lateral epicondylitis
      • Medial epicondylitis
      • Plantar fasciitis
      • Post-surgical scarring
      • Post-traumatic fibrosis
      • Strains (spinal and hamstring)
      • Tendinitis (wrist, rotator cuff, patellar, Achilles)
      • Trigger finger
      • Trochanteric bursitis
