Physiotherapy Course Summary:
IASTM uses a hard edge instrument (Arco tool) to add shearing stress to soft tissue in order to enhance the body's healing response.
The ability to focus a technical force along a small contact surface to your patient's target tissue, and do so with a relatively high level of comfort for both the patient and treating therapist is one of the best features of this technique. Great for chronic soft tissue injuries, including rotator cuff, achillies & musculotendinous sites.
What does the research say about IASTM
A 2 minute treatment significantly improved ROM, even better than foam rolling
Significantly increased ROM
Fourfold increase of microcirculation
Increases tissue perfusion and alters microvascular morphology in the vicinity of healing knee ligaments
Accelerated ligament healing
