Instrument-Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization

The Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM) technique is when clinicians use specialized instruments to effectively release scar tissue and/or other restrictions to improve a patient’s mobility.
Common conditions that respond well to the IASTM technique include:

  • Pulled hamstring
  • Meniscal tears
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Tight hip flexors
  • Shin splints
  • IT band syndrome
  • Shoulder pain
