Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (I.A.S.T.M.) uses an instrument to detect and "break-up" soft tissue adhesions (often referred to as "knots"). These adhesions often affect normal function and can result in headaches, pains, limited range of motion, and other various musculoskeletal conditions.
I.A.S.T.M. may be used in conjunction with other chiropractic treatments to aide in the treatment of medial/lateral epicondylitis, neck and back pain, shoulder pain and rotator cuff tendonitis, IT band syndrome, carpal tunnel, plantar fasciitis, as well as other conditions.
