You might have heard about a treatment we offer here called IASTM, or Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization. If you're wondering what that means, let me break it down for you.

IASTM is like a specialized set of tools for your body. If you've ever tried to untangle a knotted rope, you'll know it can be tricky without the right tools. IASTM tools are made to work through knots and tension in your muscles and other soft tissues. I use a set of handheld instruments, typically made of stainless steel, shaped specifically to reach and treat the areas of your body that might be causing you discomfort.

You might ask, "What benefits can I expect from IASTM?"

  1. Pain Reduction: One of the major benefits of IASTM is its ability to reduce pain. This is achieved by breaking down scar tissue and restrictions in your fascia, the connective tissue that surrounds your muscles.

  2. Increased Circulation: IASTM also helps to improve circulation in the areas being treated, which can speed up healing and decrease inflammation.

  3. Improved Mobility: By addressing restrictions in your soft tissues, IASTM can enhance your range of motion and overall mobility.

  4. Faster Recovery: This treatment can hasten your recovery process from injuries or surgeries, fostering a healthier healing environment within your body.

 

Now, you might be wondering, "How do I use IASTM in my practice?"

 

As a chiropractor, I have a deep understanding of the musculoskeletal system. I know how your muscles, bones, and connective tissues interact. I use this knowledge to identify areas in your body that might feel "stuck" or "tight" - these spots might be causing you pain or limiting your movement. By using IASTM tools, I can help get these areas moving more freely again, alleviating your discomfort and enhancing your mobility.

Remember, while IASTM can be greatly beneficial, it's just one of the techniques I have at my disposal. Depending on your specific needs, I may also use other techniques or therapies. I encourage open communication during our sessions - please let me know about your pain levels, comfort, and any concerns you have throughout your treatment journey. Your wellbeing is our top priority.
