Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization

dr

Instrument-assisted soft tissue manipulation (IASTM) involves utilizing a handheld device to perform adjustments to spinal vertebrae and other body joints and muscles. It is an alternative to traditional adjustments, as it eliminates twisting- or cracking-type maneuvers and provides a comfortable yet effective correction. This technique is an ideal method that can be used on anyone, especially the young or the elderly.

Instrument-assisted manipulation aims to effectively break down scar tissue and reduce inflammation that causes pain and restricted mobility. Certain instruments can comb over and "catch" on fibrotic tissue, which immediately identifies areas of restriction. Chiropractors can then treat soft tissue lesions with the depth, pressure and specificity necessary to affect the condition at the site of the pain, as well as following the kinetic chain to find and treat the cause. Other conditions treated include the following:

  • Chronic Pain
  • Rotator Cuff Injuries
  • Knee Injuries
  • ITB Syndrome
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Elbow Tendonitis
  • Strains/Sprains
  • Neck/Back Pain
  • Plantar Fasciitis


Benefits of instrument-assisted manipulation include the following:

  • Pain Relief
  • Increased Flexibility
  • Increased Strength
  • Enhanced Recovery
