IASTM aka “Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization,” is a manual therapy approach to musculoskeletal injuries using specifically designed tools. Stainless steel is the most effective material for IASTM. At our office we use specifically Graston tools.
Graston tools are an extremely effective treatment of adhesions and scarring brought on by surgeries, injuries, and overuse of muscles. The practitioner with the use of the tool creates a unique vibration allowing a controlled inflammatory process to facilitate the tissue to begin the healing process, breaking down scar tissue/adhesions in the troubled area, and accelerate the recovery process.
