IASTM System is a therapy approach that addresses problems such as scarring, fibrosis and degeneration that occur in soft tissues. These problems may develop as the result of trauma, surgery or overuse. It is effective for new injuries as well as chronic, nagging conditions. IASTM System uses instruments along the surface of the skin to locate these problem areas and start the body’s healing process. As the body heals, exercise and activity help guide the healing which allows you to return to activities without pain and limitation. The success of IASTM is documented for a wide variety of diagnoses and many times it helps patients where other treatments have failed.
