What is IASTM? IASTM stands for “Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization”. This treatment works to stimulate the body’s healing response, which results in the remodeling/resorption of scar tissue and the regeneration of degenerated tendons. The approach is a non-invasive therapy that works fast and consistently…no medications; no needles, no surgery. This process is specific and has proven effective through documented, consistent, desirable outcomes – results physicians and patients have come to expect and trust.
One specific system is ASTYM (A’-stim) which stands for “a stimulation”. Developed by a research team of physicians, physical therapists, and scientists, this protocol-driven system yields long-term results with short-term therapy, even when other treatments have failed. Only ASTYM-certified clinicians may perform the ASTYM treatment.
