IASTM Explained

Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Manipulation (IASTM) is a simple, non-invasive form of manual therapy to manipulate or mobilise soft tissue structures of the human body. IASTM is becoming increasingly popular these days among both practitioners and patients alike due to its remarkable safety and efficacy profile. The therapy is nonaggressive, yet effective, and can be applied either alone or in conjunction with supplementary exercises and additional modalities.

 

The procedure uses instruments to mechanically stimulate soft tissue structures to relieve musculoskeletal pain and discomfort and improve overall mobility and function. In other words, IASTM is a common term that describes the use of a range of ergonomically designed tools to enable clinicians to detect and treat soft tissue pain, injury, and dysfunction.
