IASTM Can Help You Manage Your Chronic Pain

Progressive Rehabilitation Associates uses instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM) as a manual treatment for chronic pain. Our physical therapists use a plastic or metal tool to scrape across the skin. As a result, your pain is reduced. You will also experience reduced inflammation and healing for the condition causing you pain.

To learn more about how this technique can help you, schedule an appointment with one of our licensed physical therapists today. Progressive Rehabilitation Associates are looking forward to meeting you and, additionally, helping you get rid of your pain once and for all.

What Is IASTM?

When performing this procedure, an IASTM-trained physical therapist will use specialized devices that can break down connective tissue restrictions as well as scar tissue. A variety of different speeds and pressures are used based on your needs. When specific pressure levels are applied to the afflicted muscles, tendons, or ligaments via IASTM, a minor inflammatory response occurs. This inflammation promotes the body’s natural healing mechanism, not to mention allowing you to recover and return to your best life faster!

IASTM is proven to help with the following issues:

  • Limited motion
  • Motor control issues
  • Pain with movement
  • Muscle recruitment issues
