ADHESION BREAKERS INSTRUMENT ASSISTED SOFT TISSUE MOBILIZATION
Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization Instruments (IASTM) have been used for centuries in Chinese medicine, and have been further developed and improved in recent years by Adhesion Breakers.
Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization Instruments (IASTM) are specifically designed to be used in adjunction with other modalities to increase the effectiveness of the soft tissue work being performed by helping to correct the adhesions and scar tissue that form due to injury and inflammation which occurs during injuries, surgeries, overuse, and underuse conditions, by increasing tissue elasticity and fibroblastic activity to return the muscles and surrounding tissues to as close to pre-injury status as possible. This is accomplished by initiating a controlled inflammatory process which will allow the tissue to begin the healing process, breaking down scar tissue and adhesions in the tissue and redirecting collagen formation in the proper orientation for correct movement of muscles and tissues.
The Adhesion Breaker Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Instruments (IASTM) replaces the practitioners hands, allowing the user more ease in detecting fibrotic changes in the soft tissues through the vibrations carried through the tools as they are run along the fibers of the muscle, they help with faster recovery and rehabilitation from injury, and decrease pain in the patient by helping to remove scar tissue and adhesions which limit the proper function of muscle, and decrease the stresses placed on the practitioners body.
