Soft Tissue Therapy
Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Therapy
Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Therapy is a specific soft-tissue mobilization technique in which the Doctor uses a stainless steel instrument to detect and treat scar tissue and soft tissue fascia tissue restrictions. This gold standard technique uses six stainless steel instruments of different shapes and sizes to fit the body as needed.
Treatment goals and the process of this technique are to first “break up” these adhesions by breaking down the collagen cross-links that have been formed and then to realign them with proper stretching and strengthening.
The technique can be used on muscles, tendons, and ligaments, and on a wide variety of acute and chronic conditions. The instruments enhance our doctors ability to detect fascial adhesions and restrictions and have been clinically proven to achieve quicker and better outcomes in the treatment.
