Instrument-Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM)

Soft tissue mobilization

Soft-tissue dysfunction can appear in numerous forms including knots, scar tissue build-up, muscle tenderness, and more. If you experience any irritation from these common soft-tissue dysfunctions, Instrument-Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM) may be a great solution for you.

What Is IASTM?

IASTM, commonly known as scraping, involves the gliding of metal tools and lubricant along the surface of the skin to mobilize soft tissue. Our health professionals have been trained in the utilization of FRAMS (Fibrosis Release & Myofascial Stretching), FMT blades, and EDGEility tools to provide the utmost care and comfort to every patient.

There are numerous advantages to this technique including:

  • Improved Range of Motion
  • Reduced Hypersensitivity
  • Decreased Pain and Tightness
  • Increased Strength
  • And More

At Back To You, we use four different levels of the IASTM tool system to cater to the needs of our patients as well as their sensitivity and area of the body. In return, our professionals are able to provide treatment to every patient with maximum comfort and results.
