Instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM) is a treatment option available to patients suffering from restrictive scar tissue, which may have developed after injury or surgery. This technique uses specially designed instruments to detect and treat soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation, in muscles, tendons and ligaments. IASTM has been clinically proven to achieve quicker and better outcomes in treating both acute and chronic conditions, including:

  • Cervical sprain/strain (Neck Pain)
  • Lumbar sprain/strain (Back Pain)
  • Carpel Tunnel Syndrome (Wrist Pain)
  • Plantar Fasciitis (Foot Pain)
  • Lateral/Medial Epicondylitis (Tennis Elbow)
  • Rotator Cuff Tendinitis (Shoulder Pain)
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Scar Tissue
  • Trigger Finger
  • Shin Splints
  • Patellofemoral Disorders (Knee Pain)
  • Achilles Tendinitis (Ankle Pain)


The benefits of IASTM include:


  • Less time spent in treatment
  • Reduced need for anti-inflammatory medication
  • Resolution of a chronic condition thought to be permanent
  • The ability to continue everyday activities
