Fascia is a connective tissue surrounding and connecting many of the structures of the body that is particularly important to the musculoskeletal system. Fascia is layered as thin sheets that are essential for both stability and mobility of the body and adhesions or densifications between layers can affect movement and cause considerable pain.
These densifications may develop as a result of injury, dysfunctional movement patterns, genetic predisposition, or repetitive overuse.
Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM) utilizes hand held instruments to work on soft tissues, including muscles and fascia, producing microtrauma of the targeted areas and stimulating repair and remodeling. IASTM is often particularly helpful in treating conditions that are repetitive, chronic, or have not responded well to traditional physical therapy and conservative care such as:
