IASTM stands for Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Manipulation/Mobilization, and it uses a tool which allows the practitioner to quickly yet effectively scan the painful area, and to gently release scar tissue within the fascia or muscles and tendons, thus reducing soft tissue/myofascial related pain and dysfunction.
Conditions most effectively treated include, but are not limited to:
- Plantar fasciitis
- Ilio-tibial (IT) band syndrome
- Sciatica and leg numbness
- Golfers and Tennis elbow
- Knee/patella tendonitis
- Stiff neck
