Instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM) is a popular treatment for myofascial restriction. IASTM is applied using specially designed instruments to provide a effect to soft tissue (e.g., scar tissue, myofascial adhesion) to decrease pain and improve range of motion (ROM) and function.
The use of the instrument provides a mechanical advantage for the clinician by allowing deeper penetration and more specific treatment. Using instruments for soft tissue mobilization increases vibration sense by the clinician and patient. The increased perception of vibration can facilitate the clinician’s ability to detect altered tissue.
The use of instruments allows the clinician to provide consistent pressure and cover larger treatment areas in a shorter time with increased effectiveness and accuracy.
