Never heard of IASTM? Instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization is an innovative technique that aids in relieving physical pain and increases your range of motion. The stainless steel instruments used on your body during the treatments heals any soft tissue dysfunction you may have and practically removes any chronic pain permanently. Similar to Gua Sha, this therapy is a cutting-edge method to help relieve the body of severe pains.
So what’s in it for you? There are so many reasons to try this new technique. Let’s get into it:1. Less Time Spent During Treatment
If you’re doing physical therapy, performing IASTM may decrease the time it takes for your injuries to heal. Because the instrument is made of stainless steel, it increases circulation and stimulates the production of new collagen. By producing new collagen, the older scar tissue decreases and the healing process is sped up.
2. Quicker Recovery
The stainless steel instrument used during the IASTM therapy increases circulation and blood flow which, like mentioned above, produces new collagen. Because the scar tissue is repaired so quickly with the new collagen in your body, the time it takes for you to recover is very quick, and will increase your mobility to the way it used to be, and even better! IASTM also reduces inflammation which lets you live your life freely.
3. Removes Pain Practically Permanently
You read that right. Practicing IASTM therapy can remove any conditions of mild to chronic pain almost permanently. The pushing forces of the IASTM tools can stimulate the reproduction of new collagen in the body, and by continuing to practice this therapy, the pain you are experiencing will be reduced during every new session. Some areas that can be treated for pain are:
Types of IASTM Instruments Used
There are some IASTM instruments that are smaller and curvy, others are longer and more cylindrical. Some chiropractors, physiotherapists, athletic therapists, and TCM therapists use all types and sizes of these stainless steel IASTM tools to reduce muscle aches and repair damaged soft tissue.
Practicing IASTM therapy can help speed up treatment time during physical therapy, speed up your recovery, and can have you saying goodbye to aches and pains for good. This breakthrough method of therapy definitely deserves a try. Always remember to practice this in moderation and talk to your doctor about any new treatments you would like to attempt.
