IASTM or Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization

IASTM or Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization is a technique used by our San Jose Chiropractor which involves a range of tools to efficiently locate and treat soft tissue injuries. IASTM specially designed tools are specifically for treating fascial restrictions, soft tissue fibrosis, chronic inflammation, and soft tissue inactivity. IASTM works by releasing the adhesions between the layers of muscle tissue and creating a local inflammatory response to help start the reabsorption of the unwanted fibrotic tissue. As with all manual therapy’s it is best when supplemented with exercises and joint mobilization to correct biomechanical restrictions as well. Your chiropractor in San Jose, will also use protocols to identify muscle imbalances throughout the entire kinetic chain of muscles in your area of complaint to ensure a whole body approach is taken ensuring the best results for you.
