INSTRUMENT ASSISTED SOFT TISSUE MOBILIZATION

WHAT IS IASTM?

WHAT THE RESEARCH SAYS:

  • INCREASE ROM/FLEXIBILITY BETTER THAN STRETCHING ON YOUR OWN (Hussey et al, 2018)

  • “. . .Remove[s] scar tissues from injured soft tissues and facilitate healing process through formation of new extracellular matrix proteins such as collagen.” (Kim et al, 2017)

  • Increases microcirculation to soft tissues by 400%

  • Great way to kick start injury prevention, mobility, and reducing soreness when getting back into the gym!
